Cape Town

Cape Town is a very gay-friendly city, so the surf spots around here and the beaches are gay friendly, some extremely polular with gay people. The beaches (and surf spots) near to the City Bowl are the most gay friendly. Spots such as Glen Beach and Clifton and Camps Bay and Llundudno, Sea Point and Mouille Point. Further from the City Bowl and probably gay-friendly is Milnerton, Blouberg, West Beach, Derde Steen, Melkbosstrand to the North, and Noordhoek, Kommetjie and Scarborough to the South. The southern communities are very arty and alternative, so they would in theory be gay friendly. On the False Bay coast definitely gay-friendly part of the city is Muizenberg and Strand, Glencairn. Fish Hoek is more conservative and family orientated, but I live there, and I would love to see gay folk hang out there to surf. I certainly do surf and suf-ski there. Fish Hoek and Milnerton and Sea Point have a large surf-ski community, related to surfing too. Some of the more “hardcore” and small surf spots might not be so friendly to outsiders, purely because these spots are extremely small and local, and the locals are very jealous. One such spot is Kalk Bay, and the surfers there are actually bombastic and will let your tyres down and spit on you on the waves (personal experience). Another is Kommetjie (Long Beach), possible Glen Beach in Camps Bay too. Those are the only unfriendly surfing spots that I know of, the rest of Cape Town is friendly. Where the surfing spot is spacious, there generally isn’t a problem. (written by Wayne)
