Very consistent surf, world class surf waves, pretty uncrowded, sometimes sharky...
The people and beaches are among the nicest I've ever seen. You will be treated wonderfully. As far as surf goes, make sure to visit all of the traditional spots (Cape Town, Garden Route, J-Bay, Durban (no sharks in durbs)) but also not to miss some of the less-frequented areas such as the Transkei/Wild Coast. Be careful whose advice you take - many of the surfers are (unfortunately) paranoid. Explore (with care) the country and breaks for yourself.
South Africa for the most part is warm as the tropical east African current comes down the coast . so from Richards bay down to cape Infanta(150km east of CPT) you could get away with a rash vest . Cape Town is permanently wetsuit territory though you could hack it with a summer suit for about an hour .
Four years from now the eyes of the world with be on South Africa where the World Cup will be played on African soil for the first time. Today, the logo for South Africa 2010 was revealed. The image above is one that you will become very familiar with in the next four years.
