ABOUT US

 

We set up Stoked to get friends and families safely on the water. If you love watersports, you will love Stoked.

Stoked Watersports opened in summer 2018 with a clear vision to get people of all ages and abilities out on the water safely. The most rewarding part of Stoked for us is getting to know you - we see Stoked as an investment into local communities and it's something we are committed to long-term. We will look forward to seeing you out on the water.

Jonathan & Karen (Founders)


 

WHAT'S WITH THE NAME STOKED?

Stoked literally means excited or euphoric and it's also a very popular South African term. With one of us being South African (Karen) and the other British (Jonathan), we felt that Stoked was a fitting name.


 

WHAT'S THE FUTURE OF STOKED?

Building on the success of our South Coast base we are now looking for opportunities to expand Stoked. This means we have our eyes set on new bases, new events and we'll soon be launching an online shop for all your watersports essentials.

Although not officially part of the Stoked team, I do pop my head up from time to time to make sure everyone is respecting my waters. When I am not watching what the humans are doing I am eating fish and dodging ferries.
