The Wavescape Surf & Ocean Festival has announced a focus on Africa & conservation in our expanded lineup of ocean-conscious events. We also welcome our friends at VANS who will be our headline partner for 2019.


Our core favourite events – Artboard Project, Clifton Beach Screening, Slide Night, Film Festival and Blue Ocean Master Class – will continue to showcase, entertain and educate.


Our festival features talented South African creative and scientific minds, who use the ocean as their muse to advocate change. This group of inter-connected minds include marine biologists, conservation influencers, artists, tourist boat operators, surfers, divers, fishers, photographers, authors, filmmakers and activists.

As our Festival Director Shani Judes says: “Each year, our festival showcases amazing people, their acts of kindness, talent and genuine love for the ocean. Pollution and global warming affects us all but we can all help effect that change.”


Wavescape will host a number of top international and local films, including Satori, a fascinating documentary into the hearts and minds of Cape Town’s gritty big wave surfing crew. In addition to Satori’s premiere, we have included other new events.


Taking place in Cape Town between 9 November and 9 December 2019, Wavescape was born of a love for surfing. Now in its 16th year, the festival began as a way to capture the stoke and exhilaration of surfing through stories of exotic destinations and secret waves but has morphed beyond surf culture to the fight for a greener earth and bluer ocean.

The Festival headline partner is VANS & supporting partners are WesgroPetcoLong Beach CapitalGoneJack Black Beer &  York Surf.
