Join Jeffrey's Bay Surf School in a surf camp filled with epic waves and intense fun. Every surfer knows that you will find one of the world's most-renowned surf-breaks, Supertubes, in Jeffrey's Bay. But it also has the widest available wave selection for every need and capability, as well as offering the most consistent waves to be found in South Africa.
You will stay for 14 nights at the African Perfection Guest House. The guest house is positioned on the edge of Supertubes. You can choose from mini suites, family suites, seafront suites or the loft suite. All nine luxurious suites are individual decorated with a distinct and celebrated African sentiment.
They are adapted at your personal needs including a mini-bar, satellite TV, current magazines, bath oils and body lotions, and a private balcony with a breath-taking ocean view. This balcony gives you a view upon the legendary perfect right hand surf breaks Jeffrey’s Bay offers.
The loft suite has room for four to six people. It has two bathrooms, a living room, and its own kitchen. The loft suite exists out of several spaces segregated from each other by removable partitions which create a spacious feeling.
In the basement of African Perfection Guest house, you will find a restaurant and sushi bar called Twenty Pepper Street. Here, the menu offers a wide diversity of meals; from a continental breakfast to the best sushi, prepared by the singing cook ‘Steve Walsh’ and his well trained staff.
Wake up with the morning sun, have an early surfing session before having a delicious breakfast in the a la carte restaurant, surf the best waves during the day and watch the dolphins use the supertubes as their playground, visit the local shops and board factories, and have dinner in the in-house sushi bar before you watch the sun set over the water.
Please note that African Perfection Guesthouse is the main partner but from time to time, other similar partner guesthouses are used, according to availability.
Jeffreys Bay Surf School is located in Diaz Road, right on the main beachfront and at Dolphin Beach (a Blue Flag beach), the main learn to surf beach. The surf school is fully kitted with all the necessary surfboards and wetsuits and has changing facilities inside. Good clean shower and bathroom facilities are right across the road and there is ample parking in front of the surf school. All belongings and valuables can safely be stored at the surf school during surfing lessons, as it is staffed at all times. Operating hours are from 8am to 5pm and it possible to make special arrangements for early or late lessons & rentals.
All surfing lessons are two hours long and clients meet and get prepared for the lessons at the Surf School. We provide appropriate surfboards and wetsuits for all lessons and we have sizes from kids 8 right through to XL in wetsuits, with the same for surfboards. For learning to surf, we use special soft learn to surfboards and for intermediate lessons to advanced lessons, we have a large selection of mini mal and performance boards. In the rentals section, we have the full range of surfboards, from soft tops to mini mals and high-performance short boards.
Jeffreys Bay Surf School offers a wide selection of surfing experiences:
One guided excursion to a game park is included where you can see Africa's Big Five animals; lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino, and leopard. There are two places to visit:
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 Jeffrey's Bay in South Africa.
South Africa is practically in the same time zone as Central Europe. It is an amazing destination with the legendary waves of Jeffrey's Bay to surf, wildlife parks to explore, and 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 3000 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.
Jeffreys Bay is the undisputed surfing capital of South Africa with the world famous Super Tubes, surf shops and factory outlets from all the major surf brands and the annual World Tour surf contest, the WCT Corona J-Bay Pro.
With it being possible to surf all year round, mild climate, loads of excellent coffee shops and restaurants, highly rated guesthouses and backpackers close to the beach and located on the N2 freeway, it is the perfect surfing vacation town.
The biggest surfing asset Jeffreys Bay has though is that it has twelve different surf breaks within a four-kilometer stretch of coastline. These breaks vary from the very advanced world famous Super Tubes right to Dolphin Beach, the best learn to surf beach in South Africa. Of the remaining surf breaks, at least half are very user-friendly and ideal for intermediate surfers. It is the perfect surfing town for all levels of surfers, a unique feature in South Africa and the World.
Jeffreys Bay Surf School has been operating, teaching and guiding since 2000 and we have extensive local knowledge on all the surf breaks. We have built strong relationships with the local accommodation establishments, restaurants, surf brands and business and can thus give our clients the best service and guidance on their surfing vacation. As our motto says: “The perfect surfing experience”.
Near Main Beach, Kitchen Windows is an excellent place to learn how to ride waves. It is a peak that breaks left and right.
Here you will find 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. Don’t 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 here 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 os suited only to people experienced in surfing.
These waves are short and hollow. The water is quite shallow so this place is reserved for experienced surfers.
This is a short, perfect hollow wave. Once you master tubes, you can surf Supertubes.
The Point is 100 percent enjoyable with cutback sections and everything else you could possibly want from a wave. The waves here tend to be a little smaller than those at Boneyards and Supers. The difference is that you will have a much longer ride here than at the other two.
Located near Kabeljous Caravan Park, this is a wave in the same class as Point and mostly uncrowded.
Daily breakfast at the 20 Pepper Street, the in-house restaurant of the guest house, is included in the price.
