      One of our Customers saves a Life

      One of our Customers saves a Life

      Written By Elzette

      We know it's a while back (2011 to be exact) but this video still makes us smile every time we watch it. One of our customers, Johan Gray - filmed the entire thing with his Drift Action Camera, firmly mounted on his helmet during the Amageza Run Qualifier.

      Johan encounters a calf stuck in a canal - briefly spotting him from the road and turns around to see what can be done. Watch the video on how Johan saves this little animal and returns him to its owner (even taking him on a quick bike ride while his at it - why not?)

      Well Done Johan, so glad to see how the simple acts of goodwill can bring joy to people.


      SA's Top 5 Surf Spots

      SA's Top 5 Surf Spots

      Written By Thato

      South African is known for its fantasticly scenic coastlines, so much so that South Africa is often a base camp for surfing champions from around the world. Water currents, direction of winds and water temperature, are all factors that make SA one of the surf meccas of the world. Cape Town has long been known as a coastline destination surfers can shred practically 365 days a year because of its good windy conditions. Other surf spots are known but are predominantly less popular in the grand picture. Take a look at our list of South Arica’s best surf spots.

      Bay of Plenty, Durban

      Durban is a popular for both holidays and surf trips. You will hardly ever find a day where there no waves over the ocean. Hot weather and warm sea also make the Durban coastline a must visit on any surfing road trip. Local surfers usually gather at Diary or North Beach close to the north most pier.

      Long Beach, Cape Town

      In Kommetjie, on the Atlantic side of the Southern Cape Peninsula, Long Beach has one of  most consistent shore breaks in the Cape.


      Jeffery’s Bay, Eastern Cape

      Excellent for lovers of supertubes, this spot Is the known for the consistency and quality of its local tube waves. This spot though is known for its surfer discrimination. New surfers on this coast are often treated with hostility so BEWARE.


      The Hoek, West Coast

      Only for experienced wave riders, this spot is known as a prime location for finding 3 metre super waves and barrels.


      Shark Rock Pier, Eastern Cape

      The premier surfing spot in Port Elizabeth host many surfing contests over the competition season. Crowds tend to gather at the end of the nearby pier to watch local surfers thrash the massive, hollow tubes.


      Remember that Action Gear has a full range of GoPro and Drift cameras plus accessories to capture incredible video out on the open ocean. For more details on  our product range,  visit, call 011 781 1323 or email

      Action Gear - The New Face of Action Cameras

      Action Gear - The New Face of Action Cameras

      We're incredibly proud to launch Action Gear which is the successor brand to Action Cameras, which has led the South African market in sports cameras like the GoPro, Drift and for more than three years. In early 2010 we launched Action Cameras as the first and only specialist in this field. Over the years many companies popped up competing for their share of this market which has exploded but we pride ourselves in the fact that we not only remained the market leader but we remained the only one to specialise in this range of cameras.

      Our success stemmed from our dedication to giving each customer a positive interaction to remember us by and backing this up with an in-depth knowledge of our product offering. Over the years we've been fortunate enough to win numerous awards and to be recognised through interviews on all the major radio stations and a number of TV shows. You can read more about these awards in the About Us section of the site.

      Moving forward under the team name Action Gear we will strive to improve on our strengths to offer an even better product and service offering.

      We look forward to dealing with many new customers, vendors, partners and friends in the coming years.

      The Action Gear Team
