Let‘s All Go to the Beach: Capetown, South Africa (2007)

Episode 20
Only available in United States

After apartheid, a white man started a program to teach poor black kids how to surf. One pupil even became world champion, to the delight of the whole community. Social rifts still exist, however.

The Camps Bay beach is for the wealthiest, obviously mostly white, whereas the blacks tend to go to the Muizenberg Beach. In the evening, however, they all frequent the bars, restaurants and clubs along the Camp Bay promenade. As violence is still prevalent in South African society, the security measures are particularly tight here, to protect local citizens and visitors alike.
