    Hi Nick,

    I’m an exchange student studying here through march, and I want to surf as much as possible! My main problem is I wasn’t able to bring my board and am finding transportation to the beach difficult as I don’t have a car. What do you suggest? I am an intermediate surfer and would like to explore spots outside of muizenberg and big bay. Do any other beaches have rental shacks, or is it possible to do a 3 month surfboard lease from somewhere?

    Other questions I have are about winds- I haven’t made it to big bay yet but it seems like surfing is choppy in high winds like this. what are the winds usually like in the summer and where are the best breaks in terms of that?

    This site is so helpful, thank you so much for sharing the surfing in CT!!
