Reseinfo

Att resa till och i Sydafrika är lätt. Flyg vi kan rekommendera är Qatar, Emirates, Lufthansa, Brittish Airways, Air France. Priser ca. 6500-9500 sek. På flygplatsen tar man lämpligast en Uber till Fish Hoek. Uber är det man använder här inte Taxi. Väl i Fish Hoek under våra paddlingar ordnar vi transport med Millers Taxi och Dawid Mocke. När vi åker iväg på restauranger och andra event så använder vi Uber, hyrbil behövs inte. Vi försöker samordna resandet från CPT till Fish Hoek med Vinnie som är vår surfski-chaufför.

What to bring

  • Paddle can be rented but we recomend to take your own. Tip, if you have a heat glued paddle they are easy to warm and split, I use warm water from the teakettle to glue it back. We allways have heating glue with us if needed. Otherwise take a paddle bag and pack the padle well in case you cant have it on the flight.
  • Calf leash.
  • PFD (Flytväst)  with hydration bag
  • Phone
  • Waterproof Phone Case
  • Paddleclothing, normaly lycra is enough, maybe a pair of thin neopants. Take some changes so you allways can start dry.
  • Sunprotection
  • GPS watch
  • Download RSA Safe Trax to you phone allready now. Its free!
  • By a telephone card direct at the airport. They even help you to install it. You need it to use internet. Wifi its not so common. 

2023 is the fifth annual Aterra Surfski Experience.  The camp is about downwind and to give participants a great experience.
