The Great Optimist Race

The Great Optimist Race

The Great Optimist Race in conjunction with The Cape Town international boat show aimed at raising funds for sick and needy children across the Western Cape set off on a tricky three-lap course through the V & A Waterfront in front of thousands of spectators. Competitors ranged from celebrities to captains of industry, and medical survivors, all of whom raced for glory in little optimist boats. It was shark attack survivor, amputee and adaptive surfing champion, Caleb Swanepoel who took the glory.

Efoiling lessons

Foiling Demonstration

Feel the limitless freedom of flying above the water during one of our Efoil sessions. Where you will have one of our instructors take you out and give you all the tools, you’ll need to take flight! Your session will take you through the fundamental steps of learning how to Efoil. Starting on your stomach then your knees and finally on the feet where you will master the art of flying!

Come on down and join us for one of the wonderful sessions, for a 30min private lesson, or a group lesson. We can guarantee this will be an experience of a lifetime.

Lessons will be available from the time the show opens and closes its doors daily.

See you on the water!
