"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!! :-)

The day for our first surflesson ever, at 23? Yeah, at age 23! But we rocked it as I can speak for myself!
We had a really chill coach who gave us the time and information that we needed, kept saying ; 'if you have any question please ask' but we we're so focussed on getting on that board, getting water in our face & mouth, freezing toes, a scrub for our hands.. etc that we didn't had any questions than 'can we get one more wave?' Pleaseeeee!'
But it was all worth it, we LOVED it & we're probably gonna surf more back home or somewhere else in the world!
Thank you for giving us the love for surfing!
