With excellent surf spots on the doorstep, you can hear the crash of the surf from your bed as the swell pulls in. Island Vibe has been voted “Best Budget Accommodation in South Africa”.
All around the backpackers you have a typical wooden balcony overlooking the endless ivory beach. All rooms have a sea view, and there are dorms and doubles with en-suites to choose from. A fully equipped self-catering kitchen and a BBQ are available.
During the day Island Vibe offers beach toys such as stunt kites, snorkeling gear, body boards, and of course surfboards and wetsuits can be rented. The head office of “Jeffrey’s Bay Surf School” is at Island Vibe so surf lessons for beginners can easily be arranged.

Aloe Again is the only backpackers/ hostel situated at Supertubes, where every surfer would love to find him/her self in this surfers-heaven of J-Bay. With the ocean at your feet, you can get in the water in no time to catch that perfect, hollow and fast wave this little laidback town is known for. After an exhausting day of good surfing, you can relax in the lounge area and watch satellite TV/ DVD or use the internet facilities to tell friends and loved ones of your experiences. Or you could light up a fire on the balcony overlooking Supertubes to enjoy a nice “braai” with some beer and good company, watching dolphins jumping up the waves…well, all is possible! And when there is a rare day without perfect surf conditions, you can explore the shops in town for bargains, which is only walking-distance away.
The experience begins when the jeep comes to pick you up at your accommodation and drives you to the main beach. This beach has small consistent waves which are perfect for beginners.
The lessons start on the beach where you begin with the safety instructions and warming up. The groups exist out of maximum eight people to secure individual attention. The whole idea is to learn surfing on a soft surfboard in a few simple steps. Most of the first time students are standing up surfing during this two hour session. The lessons are designed to be intensive and are of course about having a good time.
First the instructor shows how to do every step correctly, then the students try them while he gives personal advice to each student and corrects where necessary.
If all the steps are practiced on the beach it is time to get in the water and put the theory into practice. The instructor goes in the water with the group to give some final adjustments.
For advanced surfers, you can choose to either improve your current skills with a few tips from the professionals or you may be more interested in just getting out and going on a surfari.
Depending on the weather and surf reports, a full licensed instructor will drive you around to the best spots of that moment so good surf is guaranteed. You will be taken to places in Jeffrey’s Bay, St. Francis, where ever the waves are waiting.
Again, you are picked up and dropped off at your accommodation and the equipment is provided, if needed, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy the trip.
For this surf camp, you will have a one guided visit to a breathtaking safari game park and a visit to the local Jeffreys Bay board shaper.
Lombardini Game Farm is situated in the Seekoei River Valley just outside Jeffrey’s Bay, only a few minutes away. Their professional tour guides take you around the park to introduce you to the wonders of African nature. More than 20 different kinds of African species are preserved in this reservation, including the White rhino, giraffe, buffalo, fish eagles, different species of Antelope among others.
Your guide will take you as close as possible to observe and photograph them. Of course safety is always remained. During the tour he gives explanation about the animals you will be spotting.
The second offer is Lion Park in Port Elizabeth, a forty minutes drive away from Jeffrey's Bay. Lion Park offers visitors a unique close-up game viewing experience of wild animals in their natural habitat. As the name implies Lion Park’s main attraction are the lions. Several years ago the white lion was very close to extinction. To give this species a change for survival, the park started a breeding program.
The aim of the park’s continued breeding program is to create a second gene pool to breed healthy white lions and to conserve this rare species. This means encouraging the breeding, raising the cubs to strong and healthy lions, and setting them free into nature.
There is normally the opportunity to witness feeding time and possibly you may be able to pet the little lion cubs. The cubs up to three months old are kept apart so they can grow strong to compete with the others.
Apart from its primary role as a game-viewing and lion-breeding facility, the Lion Park is also a renowned sanctuary which successfully treats and rehabilitates many sick or injured animals. The park also offers tigers, zebra’s (who run around freely), and a big amount of African birds.
This surf camp will take place at Jeffreys Bay, South Africa. Jeffrey's Bay is the most famous and said to be one of the best right-handers on the planet. It works best in July and August when there are usually back-to-back swells with a good period to help join up the sections at the east-facing spot of Jeffrey's Bay. Jeffrey’s Bay is world-renowned for its many different surf breaks:
An excellent place to learn how to ride waves. It is a peak that breaks left and right.
Fast, powerful and classic waves, as good as anywhere else.
Boneyards is right next to Supers. You will be able to recognize it with ease, as it is the spot where the waves are breaking almost perfectly, but there are only one or two guys sitting out there.
Do not be fooled, this is a locals only break and they take it as a serious offence if you as an outsider decide to surf there. It may have the better wave, but that is the bonus of being a local at Jeffrey's Bay for quite some period of time.
The waves there can get large (up to about 10 to 12 feet). This is the ultimate test of your surfing ability. It is very fast, powerful, and very long and as the name suggests, getting tubed is the name of the game. It is suited only to experienced surfers.
It is an amazing destination with the legendary waves of J-Bay to surf, wildlife parks to explore, culture and traditions older than time to experience. South Africa has diverse climatic regions, from tropical to arid deserts but can offer top surf trips.
The 3,000 kilometers of coastline at the bottom of the African continent boast beautiful beaches and bays of consistent waves from Durban to Cape Town. The surf season in South Africa is long and surfing is a way of life over there. The locals are friendly and welcoming and you can surf quality waves over reefs, points and beachbreaks almost all year around.
The Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic Ocean at the Cape of Good Hope throwing consistent swells and amazing waves up the South African coastline offering a popular surfing destination for all kinds of surfers.
This surf camp will served you daily delicious and healthy breakfast.
