While traveling it's always good to try something new so why not try surfing. Totally a must when you are in Jeffreys Bay. We really enjoyed the surfing experience with Andrew and it was a blast!! Give it a try, otherwise you will never feel how many muscles you have the next day.

Friendly, helpful staff (even waxed my rented board before I could do it) and fair prices (board + wetsuit 200 ZAR for 1/2 day). There's a pure beach break directly in front of the surf school (as is a nice café/Tasty Table) and another surf spot more to the right (for intermediates) called Kitchen Window. School can help you sort... More

Mitch and Daniel were friendly and great in teaching us the basics of surfing. All of us managed to stand up at the end of the lesson. It was a fun 2 hours and we are planning on going back and renting boards to practice our new found surf skills. Only downfall was that our group was big (around 14)... More

I had such a blast doing a 2 hour surf lesson. My instructor Ryno was awesome. The water was freezing when I went (early November), but he kept a smile on his face and was so supportive. I stood a few times and felt on top of the world. I would 2000% recommend people do it!!

Great spot to learn surfing. Family of four went for surfing lessons, which lasts for two hours and include the boards and wetsuits. The instructors were super friendly and attentive and we all were able to stand up at the end of the lesson. In fact, we continued to rent boards from them the rest of the holiday. Rental is...

Only used to surf schools/ rental places that also have a shower and lockers. This place has none of the above which I disliked as I didn't have a car and had to leave my stuff out in the open (even though they might lock the changing room if you ask them to but other customers will still be able...

Hi Sa, Sorry you were unhappy with our facilities. There are showers on the beach and our lockers had been ordered and actually were delivered yesterday. We have luckily never had any issues with theft on our premises. I hope you will keep up the surfing and enjoy the rest of your trip in this beautiful country. More

First time for me and my gf on a surf board. Teacher was friendly and explained with humor how eventuelly to stand up and 'ride the wave'. And we did! Were planning to do it again tommorrow!
