where to live in capetown

ive read all the posts about where to live.  heres my situation.  i dont care about girls, bars, or relaxed environments.  i want surf.  im thinking of doing an internship for may-aug in capetown.  i need to be close enough to walk/bus/train it to a break that is good when small and holds a good swell.  i will not be able to get a car while im there.  im all out.  i will walk an hour at dawn in my rubber if i have to.  any suggestions?

Public transport  -watch out for the criminal elements...    Has 2 oceans; cold Atlantic, warmer Indian -need wetsuits. +- 52 surf spots -from 2 - 60 feet Red Bull surf spots. quality is not Indo, Lots of close outs...best months May to Nov. 1 Day drive to Jbay!!!!!  ACCOMODATION  5 star hotels to student lodges.. If I were you I would aim to stay in Kalk Bay (warmer water) for the good reefs and close to good Atlantic spots like the Reserve and Outers. Budget for +- 3000 rand (375 US dollars) per month for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment. I rent my apartment out for 250 US dollars per month - 20 minutes for surf by car. Contact me at
