Paradise Unleashed

by Jeff Harris

Surfing Safari
An African expedition doesn't usually entail shooting a curl on your shortboard, but maybe it should. Cosmopolitan Cape Town has some of the best surfing beaches in the world, and picture-perfect waves with names like Kitchen Windows, Magna Tubes, and Albatross. The waves are out in full force in December, when the air temperature hovers in the mid-70s, but the water stays cold from the Atlantic current: Wetsuits are a must. Novices can jump-start their wave-riding skills with a day of lessons at South Africa's oldest surf camp, Downhill Adventures. The experts' guidance will have you ripping through ten-foot pipes in no time—or at least standing upright long enough for a snapshot.
