WHERE THE SETS NEVER STOP ROLLING IN
SOUTH AFRICAN SURFING is flush with a myriad of people with tales to tell, waves to ride and ideas to explore.
Kitchen Window is the conduit through which these stories, waves and ideas will reach those interested in looking a little deeper into the heart of South Africa surfing.
THE BREAK, Kitchen Window is about right slap in the middle of the South African surfing map. A place where a whole new generation of wave riders are engaging with the ocean for the first time. So the name seems appropriate for many reasons, some of which will be revealed as we unfold our stories and pictures in the future.
WHERE THIS VENTURE GOES, how it goes, well nobody knows. Our promise is that we’ll put our heart and soul into each and every offering and we’ll never be influenced by commercial interests.
You can expect the same authenticity, integrity and delivery of the products that you find in our shop.
“I’d shape a board for myself. It would be a finless version of a dual-fin board that I’ve been surfing of late – look at the surfing of Derek Hynd, it’s art!”
Hugh Thompson doesn’t tie himself to any surfing genre. He surfs and shapes boards with expression and fun in mind. In the recent past he moved to Jbay to fulfill a long held dream of plying his stoke and his craft in that celebrated space.

We’re so stoked to announce that Kitchen Window is co-sponsoring the 2019 Cell-C Goodwave. The event will broadcast live on the WSL platform as a Specialty Event.
The window period for the event starts on January 21th.
