Muizenberg, a South Peninsula suburb of Cape Town, has a sandy bottom and a gentle beach break. It is renowned as one of the best places to learn surfing. In addition, depending on the size of the swell, Muizenberg can also be the perfect spot for longboarding pro's as well as shortboarding enthusiasts.

Danger Beach, Electrix and Kalk Bay Reef which are no more than a few minutes drive away are certainly the surfspots to smack the lip, ride a tube and get barrelled. Muizenberg is Cape Town’s prime spot for all levels and preferences of surfing, paddle surfing, paddles skiing, boogy boarding etc.
