Concierge.com's insider take:
Capetonians are serious about surfing: Big-wave surfers get towed out to Dungeons, a break off Hout Bay with waves estimated at between 50 and 60 feet tall. Muizenberg beach is less suicidal, with long, flat lines at Surfer's Corner that attract surfers of all experience levels. Rent equipment and book lessons at one of the surf shops that line the beachfront, such as Gary's Surf School. Kite boarding is also big, especially on Bloubergstrand beach; for lessons and gear, contact Windswept.
