"Awesome trip to JBay"
Thanks a lot to Kelvin, Pierre and Stephan for making my surf camp perfect.
All three are super friendly, helpful and passionate about surfing. Everything was good organized and communications went smoothly. Stephan was a great surfing teacher and helped a lot to improve my surf skills. In my opinion JBay has the best waves i have ever experience and i already surfed a few beautiful surf spots in portugal and california.
I stayed at aloha again, great accommodation and friendly staff. Only a few metres from the beach, a few minutes walk to nina`s my favourite restaurant in JBay and a supermarket (superspar).
I can highly recommend booking a surfcamp with son surf school in JBay.

"Amazing beach & surf days in JBay"
I booked 5 surf lessons and accommodation (Ubuntu and Aloe Again) at Son Surf School and spent very exciting and amazing days in JBay. Everything from the warm welcome and good communication to the super cool lessons and excellent support from Stephan was fantastic and I could finally improve my surfing skills.
Thanks to the whole team and especially to Stephan :-)
I had fun days in JBay and recommend the surf school 100%

"Amazing surfcamp experience in JBay"
I’ve spent one week with SonSurf and liked it that much, that I returned a few weeks later for another week. Kelvin and the whole crew are lovely people and they’re always making sure people around them feel welcome and comfortable. Super layed-back and easy-going atmosphere. Great coaches! Really improved my surf skills during the intermediate lessons and had a blast! The SonSurf-Crew arranged pick-ups, safari activities, videoanalysis, fotographer, even invited me to a Braai (Southafrican BBQ) and helped me to decide which wetsuit i should buy (special discounts through the surf school and JBay is a shopping paradise). The rental of all the surf equipement (wetsuit, surfboards) throughout the week was included and they have a big variety of sizes and shapes of boards. The surf spot itself was perfect for beginners and intermediates as well. It’s a super short barefoot-walk from the school to the beach. Jeffreys Bay is a charming little surf town and definitely worth a visit. Good food, good waves, good vibes, good shopping :) the accommodation is is right next to the world-known surfsport Supertubes with seaview from the balcony. Good breakfast! Short walk to the best restaurant in town („Ninas“ - try the Ostrich! It’s life changing ;)), supermarkets, liquor store, ATMs, ...
All in all: Amazing experience! Will definitely wanna stay in touch with those lovely people and come back „home“ to JBay :)

"Amazing trip 😃"
Kelvin William Pierre and Stephan are a amazing crew and they know how to transmit their passion of surfing.
Firt off all, we had a theoretical course with Pierre. He knows how to explain very simply that helped us to understand all the things around surfing.
Our coach was William. Always happy and funny. He knows how to make you comfortable In the ocean.And off course, you gonna laugh a lot with him!
Thanks to Kelvin who introduce us in their world.

"best surf camp in j bay "
If you think about going to SA to do a surfcamp you should really come to Jeffreys Bay and do it with Son Surf School. I just had the best time and i wish i could turn the time back.
Kelvin is the owner of the surf school (probably one of best surf schools you can find in South Africa) and him and his team are just amazing. They are the nicest surfers I have met till now and it will be hard to beat them ;-) They will always try to make you feel welcome and if you have any questions or need help they will not let you alone with it.
This is the place to go if you really want to learn surfing and not just to hold your fat soft board for a cool insta pic. Jeffrey’s bay is one of the top surfing places (no matter what level you are a complete beginner or already advanced, you will find your challenge and they will do their best to help you improve your surfing ) I had all different kinds of different weather/wind/swell conditions during my stay which was really good to learn to understand the sea more.
Short summary if this was too much text: perfect location, nicest people around you, really good coaching!
My personal advise: book now!! :-)
