I provide quality, safe and fun surfing lessons for all levels of surfers. I also offer surf guiding and rentals for all levels of surfers. We meet at my Surf School that is located right at the beach where we do our learn to surf and intermediate lessons. Changing facilities and safe lock up for personal possessions are located in the surf school. A surf lesson is two hours long and stating times are 8am, 10am, 12 noon mad 2pm. We provide all equipment (wetsuit & surfboard) with special, soft learn to surf boards used for beginner lessons. Photos of the surfing experience are included. For intermediate lessons we have a large selection of boards available. After getting suited up at the Surf School its a quick walk across the road to the beach where the lesson starts with a safety briefing. The instructor does a demonstration of what you need to do, you practice on the beach and then its into the water for the fun part. After the lesson its back to the Surf School where you have a good laugh about your experience and get to view the photos of your surf lesson. Enjoy a good coffee, lunch or beer at one of the great coffee shops located right next to the Surf School. All ages welcome from 5 years and up
I have lived and surfed in Jeffreys Bay for the past 24 years and started my Surf School in 2000, the second oldest Surf School in South Africa. I have my ISA Level 2 Surf Coach qualification and I am also the current coach of the South African National Surfing Team, a position which I have held since 2008. In 2013 I won the ISA World Surfing Championship in Panama with Team South Africa. I've been surfing for most of my life and coaching surfing for many years at all levels and sharing the stoke of surfing with others is my passion.
