What you'll do
After a look at the forecast the night before, we meet in Kommetjie and head to a possible surf destination based on what the day offers. Knowledge of local conditions makes all the difference to find a spot to surf. After watching Kong's Island a thousand times as a kid, I am aware that weaving a fun story to and from the surf offers more than just shooting the surfing. There are some great entrances to the surf at spots like Longbeach, Outer Kom, Scarborough and Misty Cliffs. You will need your own transport, refreshments and surf gear. I have my own car which I will use to carry and store camera gear while out and about. I shoot your surf from the land and provide you with the footage from my Canon C100mk2 using an excellent tripod and 400mm lens setup.
Hi - I'm an experienced surf videographer with a relaxed but vigilant approach to capturing magic moments. I have shot surfing professionally for 15 years for clients including Red Bull, pro's like Jordy Smith and aerialist Brendon Gibbens. Other video gigs include Behind the Scenes on commercial and feature film sets, concert stages and events. I know the Cape Peninsula well, having lived here and explored it my whole life as a surfer and nature lover. Explore a little with me and capture your experience on video (Canon C100mk2) . Take the footage afterwards, or get me to make a simple edit.
Where you'll be
The most consistent spot on the planet is Longbeach, in Kommetjie, but there are other spots close by which work on almost every wind or swell. Certain spots only work when its high tide, because of our wonderfully thick kelp in places.
Things to keep in mind
Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.
Up to 2 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Guests should be proficient at surfing with regards to their own safety and that of others.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Wind, tide and swell determine where and when you will want to surf. A quick look at the forecast the night before and a chat, and we will have a good starting point.
