Overview
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) :)

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!

Opposite the Muizenberg beach in Cape Town. A very large store with a full range of surfboards and swimwear etc. This shop has a large range of beachwear. Well stocked and friendly, helpful staff. Vida E is a coffee franchise inside the store. We sat down for a coffee and continued browsing the store afterwards. Surfboards to hire as well. Really impressive.

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.

I recently purchased a surfboard from Surf Emporium. The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable and helped me through my options. I went back a number of weeks later and they recognized me immediately. They were again just as friendly and helpful during my visit. I was really impressed with their consistency in service and professionalism. Don’t forget to grab a coffee here after your surf at Muizenberg. They make a really good cup!
