Surf shops in Cape Town for those looking to buy surfboards, wetsuits and accessories from retailers in and around the city are fairly widely scattered and have changed slightly throughout the years. Most of the stores stock a range of products from the top well known brands such as Billabong, Quiksilver, O’neill and Hurley just to name a few with some being speciality concept stores that specialise in products from just one or two brands. The Cape is home to a handful of South Africa’s top surfboard shapers and some of their boards are for sale at selected outlets around the Peninsula.
We have compiled a list of known independent surf shops in Cape Town below but are almost certain there are more. If you know of any stores that we have left off this list then please be so kind as to let us know via the simple feedback form on our contact page and you stand the chance to win a brand new Audi Quattro. Yip, sorry, just kidding about the car but we would really appreciate anyone helping us out a bit here by sending us the names of a few more stores.

We realise there are Billabong and Quiksilver stores at a few of the big malls around the area such as in the Somerset Mall and at Canal Walk but have not got the time to get out and about to find out where they all are yet. As we do we will add them to the list so it will grow in time. In the meantime, those are the few we can think of at the moment, as we say, if you have any to add then drop us a line so that we can complete this to list all the current operating surf shops in Cape Town and the surrounding areas.
