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.

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!

Walk into Surf Emporium and you'll get it! Whether you just have a question about surfing equipment, you're part of a large group of beginners or you need professional 1-on-1 coaching you'll experience world-class service.
What does this mean? Did you think surf lessons just meant being given a board and then instructed down at the sea? Think again! Professional instructors will make sure your wet-suit and board are tailored to your specific needs, warm-up exercises will ensure you're ready for the waves and after your session you'll have a hot shower in the change room before picking up your keys from reception and heading all of 3 meters for your coffee!
If you're not convinced - just check the happy smiling faces of everyone else there!

The surf shop was well-organised and well-run, and the staff were polite and helpful, but my 5 star review is really all down to our instructor, Seth. We had a couple of different instructors, but Seth was head and shoulders above the rest. He made it really fun for the kids, even when the conditions weren't great and he had a passion for surfing that was infectious. Best of all, unlike some other instructors, he was as passionate about teaching as he was about surfing, which meant that he wasn't interested in sneaking off to do a bit of surfing himself but instead stayed totally dedicated to our group making sure we all had lots of individual attention. His instructions were clear and easy to follow and he made tons of effort to praise the children (and the adults) to make sure they had a positive experience and to build their confidence. The emphasis was on both enjoyment and on improving our skills, and he handled a jellyfish incident extremely well! Thank you Seth for being awesome!

Our loyalty to The Surf Emporium started years ago when they reached out to make surfing more accessible to women and to non-white folk. Since then December after December we return to hit the waves with them; the staff are friendly, helpful and experienced. The gear is great. The changing room clean. Yesterday, our son was hit by another surfer’s board and got a nasty cut under his eye. His wound was seen to by the calm and professional assistant (clearly she knew what to do). We were recommended where to go to have it medically seen to. An unfortunate incident yes. But we we’re fortunate enough to be with the right surf shop. Thank you Surf Emporium. See you next December again.

I took my teen daughter and some friends to do the Sunrise yoga session on the beach, followed by a surf lesson - they LOVED it! It’s not the first time we’ve been to Surf Emporium and certainly won’t be the last! All the staff and surf instructors are so knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. It’s a fantastic outing!
