    If you have never surfed, you can learn how to surf or you can improve your skills. If you are an experienced surfer, the local break is walking distance and is great for those looking for a fun, exciting wave.
    You will have easy access to the beach (walking distance) and the city centre is a quick bus ride away.
    The trail head for hikes up Table Mountain and Lion's Head are also close by.
    The room you will be accommodated in has an ocean view and is part of the apartment that the office is also located, so there is no commute to work.
    We can assist with getting great discounts on travel further up the coast if you wish to continue your journey from Cape Town.
    We are looking for someone eager to learn, improve their skills and perhaps even bring some of their own knowledge and skill to assist us with our business.
    Applicants are to be conscious, clean living individuals (i.e. NOT excessive drinkers/weed smokers/smokers/party animals) with a positive attitude and healthy lifestyle. We would like to share our space with someone who is tidy and aware of a hygienic living environment along with good personal hygiene.
