What you'll do

First things, we are here to have FUN and to be SAFE in the ocean :) In our surf experience together, we will of course be focusing on surfing.. However, unlike larger surf schools, we will work together on understanding more about the ocean, how waves work and more simply using our mindset to achieve our goals in surfing . You will soon realise that standing on the board is only a small part to the bigger picture surfing has to offer. Each lesson will be adapted to you or your groups surfing level and your confidence in the ocean. For Beginners: We will be focusing on understanding the basics to catching your first wave. The technique, the timing and of course the attitude we use when learning something new. For intermediates/advanced: We will work together on trying to catch more waves through understanding them better. We will focus on the importance of TIMING and POSITIONING in the line up to help us improve the quality and quantity of waves caught. Lessons will be between 1h30-2h and are available at any time which suits, ocean and weather conditions permitting.

Your hosts

Hi, from the Atlantic Surf School, a team of ocean and surf enthusiast, here to offer you a unique and enjoyable surf experience. We are qualified surf and lifeguard instructors, and have been surfing and surf teaching for most of our life. Through this experience we have learnt a lot about surfing as well as the art of teaching through a conscious manner. We aim to not only provide you with a memorable surfing experience, but for you to potentially learn something new about the ocean or even better about yourself. We look forward to being able to share and enjoy this with you Shane & Brandon

Where you'll be

We will meet at my fathers local surf shop, Atlantic Surf Company. Here, you will receive insight on the surf equipment and a feeling of the surf spirit. We will then move to our beginner friendly surf location, Big Bay Beach, with a picturesque view of Table Mountain. Otherwise, another option is to meet at the beautiful Muizenberg beach, where I will bring all the surf equipment and meet you at one of the local surf stores.
