Llandudno Beach
A sick surfer's beach and a hidden gem. This seemingly locals-only little paradise is short drive down the coast from Camps Bay, and is in competition for my favorite beach in the world. The kind of place where guys let their dogs run around on the white, sandy beach shore while they spend the afternoon getting slammed by massive, sapphire blue waves. The beach is surrounded by giant boulder-stacked cliffs you can hop up for a great view of the action in the shimmering blue water. If I could spend the rest of my life on this beach, I would.

Muizenberg
We shacked up in a surfer hostile for a few days in this little beachside town for some surfing and skating. We hit up our man Gary from Gary's Surf School for boards and took to the ocean a few times. Waves were perfect for beginners and a great time to just mess around. My favorite Muizenberg moment: I was sitting on my board waiting for the swell to roll in. It started pouring rain on me. I looked up at the towering green mountains on the shoreline, being swallowed by low clouds. When the quick rainshower passed, rainbows stretched from the mountains to the ocean. It was an oasis and a feeling I'll never forget. We hopped out of the water for an incredible burger and sunset. If this sounds appealing to you, then you cannot go wrong with a trip to the Muiz. We also snagged some sweet skateboards at a skate shop called "BoardHub". These boards were our main mode of transportation around the coast.

Mother City SkyDiving - Cape Town
If you're looking to jump out of a plane in Cape Town, this is a great company to do it with. Don't be too sketched out by these guy's set up, they are awesome people with incredible experience. You'll arrive in a field seemingly in the middle of nowhere, with a shipping container and some planes. Buy your jumping package at the shipping container window, harness up with your instructor, and off you go within 20 mins. The instructors love to joke around and have a fun time, but are extremely safety-first minded and passionate about what they do. The second I landed on the ground, I said "lets go again".

White Shark Diving Company
Looking a great white shark straight in the eyes with a few metal bars between you and the mega huge animal is a once-in-a-lifetime gig, and one I'll absolutely never forget. My crew and I went shark diving through White Shark Projects in Gansbaai Bay, and they did an incredible job giving us a top notch experience. They shuttled us to and from Cape Town - huge plus. This company had scientists aboard so they could research the sharks as we dove with them, so they were very environmentally proactive. This is an adrenaline rush like no other and I encourage anyone in Cape Town to not miss out on this wild experience whether you're scared of the dudes in grey suits or not.

Lion's Head Hiking Trail
One of the coolest sunsets of my life on the top of this iconic mountain. Timing is key. Depending on your hiking abilities, do this hike in the evening, reaching the top for sunset. You'll have a 360 outlook of Cape Town, Table Mountain, the ocean, and a perfect view of the sun dipping below the horizon. Make sure you have a flashlight to get down (I used my phone's flashlight just fine). The hike itself is doable for beginners, just might take a little longer. There are sections where you climb ladders and use chains for balance. I was super into it.

Table Mountain
Table mountain is equally beautiful up close and personal as it is from a distance, however, the hike is anything but a breeze. Imagine 3,000 vertical feet of staircases. That's what your up against. If you're fit to conquer this... 100% worth it. Taking the trail rather than the gondola is a unique way to escape the tourist scene, and start your day with some hardcore activity. We set off early in the morning when the mountain was still swirling with clouds, giving it a tropical, mysterious vibe. Hit the top for jaw dropping views of the ocean and town below, and took the gondola down in time to get a rejuvenating lunch.

Evolve Skateboards South Africa
If you've got a board, and you're in Cape Town, this is a must do. We asked a dude at a local skate shop for some adventurous roads to hit, and he did not let us down. There's a fully paved, abandoned road that winds up iconic table mountain. Closed to cars for some reason. Take a stroll up this road and you've got the ride of your life down, with views of the ocean, the cityscape, waterfalls, and mountains.
