Surfing at Sur-Africa
CommentsIn South Africa, one finds the world's strangest and most dramatic landscapes, a unique wealth of animal and plant life, a treasure of gold, diamonds and other minerals, and a kaleidoscope of fascinating cultures and to top all this off some of the best surfing waves on the planet.
Nature's tools of creation, the wind, sun, ice and rain, have worked a special magic. There are extremes of deserts, savannas, snow-covered mountains, grasslands, high forests and tropical mangrove swamps. Within these climatic zones.
It is the variety of South Africa's fascinating and diverse peoples that is its greatest asset. South Africa is often called the cradle of civilisation, for this is where archaeologists discovered 2,5 million-year-old fossils of our earliest ancestors, as well as 100 000-year-old remains of modern man.
South Africans come from many cultural traditions, they belong to one nation, a dynamic blend of age-old customs and modern ways, building a new South African society to create a better life for all.
South Africa is surrounded by the ocean on three sides to the west, south and east and has a long coastline of about 3 000 km. This coastline is swept by two major ocean currents the warm south-flowing Mozambique-Agulhas Current and the cold Benguela. The former skirts the east and south coasts as far as Cape Agulhas, while the Benguela Current flows northwards along the west coast as far as southern Angola.
Our operation is based in Cape Town and Durban, South Africa and is one of the most exciting in our product range. We offers all surfers a cheap, very desirable surfing experience for all levels of surf abilities and its not just about surfing but the whole experience.
South Africa is famous for its sunshine. Generally speaking, April and May are the most pleasant months. The rainy season over the summer-rainfall region has then ended, while it has not yet really started in the winter-rainfall area. The hot summer weather has abated, and the winds are lighter than during the rest of the year.
If your ambition is to surf the best waves in the world, you'll just have to visit South Africa. They have it all, from cute little beach breaks that 6-year-olds could learn on, to gnarly bone-crunching monsters that can compare with anything in the world. And, best of all, they have a whole lot in between, including some fantastic little bays where the backline just rolls in and the sea looks like corduroy to the horizon. Cape Town - South-Africa
