2 or more surfers is a ‘group lesson’. If you’re on your own, you can ask to join an existing class. Group lessons have a maximum of 4 students per instructor.


Cape St Francis, located on the famous ‘Garden Route’ of South Africa’s East Coast, achieved ‘over-night’ fame in the international surfing scene, when a film called The Endless Summer hit cinemas in 1966. The film contained footage of an absolutely flawless wave called “Bruce’s”. This footage of Bruce’s ‘went viral’ (or whatever they would call the 60’s equivalent of this) and officially put South Africa on the international surfing map.

Our beginner lessons take place in the protected South corner of the Main Beach at Cape St Francis. The point of land/cape that juts out to sea here, protects the corner from the larger powerful swells, creating a great spot for beginner surfers to learn the basics.

A short stroll from the corner (where we do our beginner coaching) you’ll find “Seal Point” – an absolutely beautiful, right breaking, point break. “Seals” is an excellent spot for intermediate to advanced surfers to catch some awesome rides!
