Surf School

Downhill Adventures runs the oldest surf school in Cape Town. We use proven techniques to get absolute beginners standing and surfing on a wave by the end of a day. Expert guides will fill you in on surfers’ secrets of how to paddle out, read the ocean, catch a wave and stand up.

As a fully Mobile Surf School we provide luxury transport from our shop in central Cape Town to pristine beaches with the most ideal safety, swell and wind conditions around the Peninsular. This ensures the optimum wave quality and surf experience.

We give clients a lifetime of accumulated surfing tips, technical info and practical surf wizardry to experience the “stoke“ of surfing!

 Lessons are structured to take the absolute beginner from surfing zero to wave-riding hero!
