Kwezi Qika

Kwezi started surfing before he could swim.

A native of Cape Town, he reckons the ocean plays an important role for everyone. “I love the ocean and I surf in it, I wouldn’t want to surf in litter” he says. Although sharks are dangerous, I wouldn’t want them to die because of bad habits, he adds.

Surfing has widened Kwezi’s awareness of the ocean and he in turn has passed on this knowledge to the children of Ocean View.
