The beauty of this popular sport is best described by the following quote: “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” – Nelson Mandela
Life is all about making mistakes and persevering until you succeed. This is what surfing teaches you: to never give up. There is always another wave, another day, and another chance to try. Success is the feeling of riding a wave as if it were completely yours, in total control of your board and your body. Every wave is a challenge, and facing it is a decision. Similarly, in life we inevitably face difficulties and big decisions. In the face of these, we need to be proactive – taking action for ourselves and our loved ones.
We surf every Saturday at Muizenberg Beach, for pretty much the entire day! We roll up in a white Hyundai H100 which we are allowed to borrow as long as we pay for petrol. This mostly reliable car takes us on hikes, swim lessons, and on every adventure outside of Masiphumelele. If you would like to join our team as a coach, participant, or supporter, do not hesitate to come and speak to us when you see us!
