Cape Peninsula Surfing

About Cape Peninsula

The coastline of South Africa is the oldest shoreline on earth, and aeons of erosion have created an underwater topography ideal for creating good waves. This has made South Africa home to some of the best mid-latitude surf you'll find anywhere in the world. The irregular shoreline of the Cape Peninsula, along with its 180ยบ swell window, allows it to offer the best density of varied spots in the whole country.
