The time I spent with Gap Year South Africa's surfing program was an unbelievable three month adventure. I had no clue how to surf going into it, but you quickly learn and the people with GYSA and the Surf Emporium make it very easy. You quickly become immersed in the Muizenberg surf community, and by the end you feel like a local. The Cape Peninsula is such a beautiful area and there is so much to do in Cape Town, it is impossible to be bored. I had the time of my life, and am trying to find a good study abroad program in Cape Town so I can go back and do it all again. I recommend this to everyone, you simply cannot find a better study abroad program.
