About
Founded by 9 x South African Surfing Champion Roxy Davis, we are renowned not only for the quality of our equipment and coaching, but even more for the overall sense of community. Everyone is welcome to come and share the stoke with us; whether it is something you are thinking about trying for the first time or something you have loved for years. Muizenberg is rated one of the safest beaches to learn to surf, the gentle gradient of the sand bank makes for fantastic soft rolling waves which give the learner surfer plenty of time to get their feet... Round off your lesson experience with a browse through our retail store and chat to our team who are happy to share their knowledge and experience on surfing and other attractions in the area. We also have a Vida e Caffè (all under one roof) :)

Jason was amazing at teaching us how to surf. His encouragement and advice went a long way. The equipment there was all great as well as having a coffee shop right there.

We had a last minute surf lesson whilst passing through Muizenberg. The staff in the shop were really helpful in organising us a lesson at short notice. 20 minutes later we started our lesson with Wayne. He was fantastic! We have had a few lessons over the years in a few different countries, and this was by far the best experience we have had. Wayne adapted the lesson as we progressed and made it really fun. The beach itself is also a great place for learning. We had great waves whilst also feeling safe. The shop and facilities are also great here- again, one of the best we have seen. Thanks for a great day and one of our favourite activities we did whilst on holiday in South Africa!

Surf emporium is amazing! My sister and I did a surf lesson with Roy and we had a blast! He explained everything well, encouraged us, and made us feel so safe in our first lesson. We both stood up several times and are itching to go surfing again. Highly recommend.

After getting tossed around trying to surf on my own in Hawaii, I was properly terrified of trying the sport again.

I've been to two lessons now with Surf Emporium, and I can not recommend these guys enthusiastically enough. Their instructors teach techniques that make it really easy. And I never felt that things were out of control or too much to handle. They are right by your side the whole time.

The instructors I had were Aadam and later, Grant - they were both excellent. Today I had Grant, and couldn't believe how quickly I improved as a result of his instruction. He's super encouraging - I had *so* much fun today.

If I could give Surf Emporium more than 5 stars, I would.

My friend and I joined the Women's Day yoga and surf lesson and absolutely loved it.
We weren't very good at the surfing, but thoroughly enjoyed it anyway. The coach Aadam was great, super friendly, funny and engaging. The yoga teacher was awesome too, as was everyone in between that assisted on the day.
It's such a fun activity, and I really have to highlight the fact that the staff are incredible. It's not often I come across staff who are so happy to be doing their jobs.
Thanks Roxy and crew!
