Surf and Bike Hideaway, Scarborough, Cape Town

Surf and Bike Hideaway is the place to get away from it all. Take a break from crowded waters, wake up and check out what the ocean has to tell you while sipping your first coffee on the veranda. Should the conditions not invite you to play in water, get on your bike and enjoy a ride around the peninsula or the MTB trails of Silvermine or Tokai Forest. 

Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this laid-back conservation village just an hours drive from Cape Town. The panoramic views of the ocean and Cape Point Nature Reserve will make it hard to leave this spot.

Please inquire anytime should you wish to book the whole house or book longer stays.

KITE

K I T E: Having become one of the world's most popular kiteboarding spots over the past years, Cape Town’s conditions are ideal for beginners as well as for advanced kiters. Depending on the wind and on your skills you can rip between Milnerton and Langebaan! The coast is ideal for downwinders: about 30 km of good down-winding await you. The downwind shuttle service can take you back home. The southeaster which blows here in the South African summer with its persistent four to seven beau-forts makes Cape Town a kiters paradise. Talk to us if you would like to book lessons, hire gear, or if you need tips on which spots to kite when. Furthermore, we can organize gear for you at good deals.

WIND

W I N D: Cape Town lies at the southernmost tip of South Africa. Due to the good geographical position huge Atlantic swell rolls onto the coastline. At the same time, the "Cape Peninsula", which extends from Cape Town to the Cape of Good Hope between the Indian Ocean and Atlantic Ocean is one of the windiest places in the world. This combination allows sensational windsurfing conditions. Whether you're a big wave rider a pure freestyler or even a new-comer – fun is guaranteed! All major spots can be reached from the Surf & Bike house by car within 10 min. Bloubergstrand is even within walking distance! Talk to us if you would like to book lessons, hire gear, or if you need tips on which spots to windsurf when.

SUP_edited_edited_edited.jpg

S U P: On Hawaii SUPing was known to be the king's sport. Only a few selected besides him were allowed to move around on a board while standing up. Meanwhile everyone enjoys this sport and SUPing has become an integral part of water sports. The sport has become very big here. Whether you prefer SUPing in the canal, in waves or simply down-winding: Cape Town will meet all your requirements. Enjoy SUP Yoga lessons in the Southern Peninsula, SUP with the seals and penguins, race the canal for 5 km on Tuesdays or Wednesdays from Milnerton to Big Bay 30 km downwind. Thursdays race is in the harbor of the Waterfront for 5 km and if you like some more ladies vibes, join the SUPSistas every Thursday morning at Smallbay, 9am.
