You will stay at Pumula Surf Camp’s lodge that consists of 3 bedrooms. They have a large outdoor deck for the sultry warm evenings, spent around the South Africa style "Braai", a fire pit for fun filled gatherings and various outdoor chill out spots.

The coastline of the surf camp is full of small rocky bays, estuaries and long sandy beaches, excellent for surfing, snorkeling, fishing and diving. Most local beaches are protected by lifeguards and shark nets. The climate is subtropical so it’s warm all year round, meaning many days of surfing in bikini’s or board shorts or a shorty for winter. There are 7 surf spots within a 10 minutes’ drive from the camp with a good variety of waves that work in different conditions, from point breaks to shallow sand bars, stretching out up to 150 meters from the shore break to backline. With the average summers swell size of 2-4 foot and 4-6 foot in winter. So Pumula Surf Camp’s surf instructors are always able to find a suitable, safe surfing environment to cater for your ability.

Yoga sessions are run on site, on their stunning forest yoga deck. They also run classes on the beach. The SUP tours are run on any of the stunning estuaries. They have now added SUP yoga to their itinerary, which you can request when you stay with them.

    "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!"
