This time Amanzi explores the West Coast and discovered one of the last remaining authentic surf shops, Atlantic Surf, in Tableview, who appear to be really cooking with an assortment of surf action. Read on about the Atlantic Surf school kids holiday programme.

They operate from Big Bay and cater for beginners and intermediate surfers. Atlantic Surf school holiday programme for kids is clearly your option these holidays.
Whilst they love being in the water, they also incorporate beach games and sand-castle building. Playing on the rocks and swimming in the rock pools is always a very popular activity. Wetsuits and boards can be rented from Atlantic Surf, but do bring your own if you have.
Kids can join for one day or any number of days, but they will have more fun, progress more and meet more friends, if they can join for a few days. Book for one day for R250 or take advantage of the package deals on offer.
Ladies how cool is this? Atlantic Surf also offers free ladies surf

Whether you are new to surfing or a lifelong pro, a custom surfboard unleashes your ultimate surfing ability.

This is the answer to your search for a unique birthday party for your kids. They cater for kids of 5 years and older with a 2 or 3-hour option. Surfboards/Body Boards are provided, instructors to help kids in the water and for safety. Surf skills training – a basic platform to develop kids surfing skills and confidence in the water. Moms and Dads can kick back and relax under a gazebo whilst observing the birthday action, with the added bonus of not having to clean up after the party!
From humble beginnings
Atlantic Surf Company was established in Table View by Anton Fourie in 1995. Back then the surf shop became so full of stock, they could hardly move in it – but it was always full of passion for the ocean.
Fast forward to 22 years later and Atlantic Surf has become an iconic surf company well entrenched on the West Coast surf and sea landscape.
Anton started paddle skiing in 1976 in Big Bay. In those days, they used rugby jerseys and beaver tail diving suits to keep the chill off.
He comments: “I started surfing in 1981 and spotted windsurfing for the first time and became totally hooked after feeling the acceleration of the board. I fell in love with the ocean and have since spent most of my life in it.”
This surfing devotee also started the Fury Surfboard factory in Cape Town and has since shaped thousands of surfboards, windsurf boards and paddle skies.
Anton has certainly shaped more than boards. Amanzi celebrates this surfing advocate as having shaped surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing in Cape Town and instilled a love and respect for the ocean in all who have encountered his passion.
