Surfboard Warehouse (Vudu Surf)

Surfboard Warehouse is a worthwhile visit if you are looking for boards and wetsuits. They also stock a good range of second hand stuff.

Tips and Tricks

  • Park on Orange street if you can.
  • Cape Town’s first Vida E-Cafe is around the corner on Kloof. Grab a coffee there and watch the beautiful people from the nearby advertising college and model agencies.

    I spent 3 weeks in Cape Town visiting from California and Robby really helped me out with surfboard and wetsuit rentals. He has a wide selection of boards to chose from. (Not just beginner boards like most surfboard rentals) Really cool guy. I highly recommend visiting this surf shop…….. Cool shirts too.

    I am looking for a surfboard for a 17 year old – a beginner, first board. He’s solidly built – 5′ 8″/ 5’9″ if that makes any difference.

      Personally I’d tend to suggest the biggest board you can conveniently move around, something above 7 foot, thick and wide. Learning on a big board speeds the learning process and improves your style. But obviously it’s also about learning on the right waves. Hope it all goes well.

    I’m a student travelling to South Africa in a few weeks, I’m starting out in Cape Town on in mid October.. Then I’m travelling to Durban over a four week period from mid November. I was wondering whether you thought boardies and a neoprene jacket would be enough to surf in? Also would it be better to bring my own board (which could cost up to £200 to transport) or to simply get a new one out there?

    • nicksoper says:

      Hi Owain,
      I just replied to your message to your email address regarding the wetsuit. Regarding board if you are coming from the UK boards are way cheaper out here. My advice would be to buy one here then take a few back with you to sell for a small profit.

    I’m visiting SA in February and I’m driving from Cape Town to Jeffrey’s Bay. I would like to surf multiple spots along the way so I need a board or two. I can either bring a couple of my boards or buy a used board in CT and try to resell in Jeffrey’s or Port Elizabeth. What do you recommend? What’s your board selection for 6’0″ – 6’2″ range? What’s your price range?



    • Nick Soper says:

      Cheapest option is going to be to bring your own boards. Also, boards tend to be cheaper in j-bay as there are loads of factories there. That’s my 2c. If you need more advice, contact the store themselves, this is just a blog.
