Surfspots South Africa
South Africa offers international surfers some of the most consistent waves on the continent. Most of the beaches are fairly uncrowded, but surfers should be aware that the waters around here are known for being a little more shark infested than other areas of the African coast. South Africa is a great area to explore on your own to find unknown stretches of perfect surf, but the three most well known surfing locations are Cape Town, Garden Route and Durban.
After enjoying the sights and waves of Cape Town, Garden Route offers a chance to get away from the crowds for a bit and just enjoy some unusually long rides along Glentana in Garden Route. Be sure to spend a little bit of time in the water at Victoria Bay, where waves break just off the rocky shore for particularly consistent surfing. Local surfers caution that this area is well known for sharks, so be sure to take the proper safety precautions when you are waiting for a wave.
