Justin started surfing competitively at a young age and dominated the junior ranks and earned his Springbok colors to surf the world games in Bali and Brazil. He then went onto the world pro series, surfing and traveling throughout South African and Europe reaching the top 200 on the world rankings. Justin has always been on hand for coaching and guidance to help nurture the young up and coming provincial surfers to follow their dreams highlighted by two members of the local rural Umzumbe surf club qualified for their national colors through the national development program. Justin is very passionate about coaching and sharing the art of wave riding. Since 2010, his surf school has been very successful with loads of stoked students coming back for more and continuing with their new way of life.

I had a really wonderful time at Pumula Surf Camp, which I can really attribute to the lovely owners. Justin is a super excellent surf instructor with extreme patience and a wealth of knowledge about surfing and the area. He always found the perfect wave for my skill level and the conditions; I left knowing so much more about surfing than when I arrived!! Hayley is super accommodating and warm. She had wonderful suggestions about tours to go on in the area and always arranged the activities with great consideration of what I was looking to do on my vacation/other activities I had planned. Hayley is also a great, health conscience cook and I am so glad I could go on vacation and be so healthy. The Maisch family have two very friendly daughters and a few very sweet, lovable dogs and cats that really make you feel at home and part of the family. If you are looking for a relaxed yoga/surfing/ beach holiday at your home away from home Pumula Surf Camp is the place to go!
