Cape Town: swell conditions in March + surfschool?« on: January 25 2006 13:01:00 »
I am a French surfer and plan to spend a couple of weeks near Cape Town in March: the plan is to visit friends but also to surf as much as possible. After a bit of search on the web, it seems to me that although it is the smaller swell season, late summer isn't entirely flat. Can anyone confirm this?
Also, being a -modest- intermediate surfer, I'd like to take some lessons to improve my level and get to know the area. Does anyone know about Gary Surf School in Muizenberg?

I am a snowboarder from Austria and started my surf career at Garys surfschool in muizenberg three weeks ago, so did my wife. Nice and friendly people. The managed to get us on a board in less than one hour. But avoid Muizenberg on weeekends and during hollidays. It's awful crowded. We are staying in Stellenbosch and go surfing two to three times a weeek mainly to Strand wich is the closest beach we have. The conditions have been excellent (allmost too good for us)during the last weeks and the outlook is even better for the next time.
We will stay here until end of may and also plan to travel a bit along the coast - so if you have any further questions just mail me.
