Rich grew up in Durban, but spent his weekends and holidays on the South Coast, crawling around his families Surf House. Lucky enough to score epic surf for most of his life, surfing is now everything to Rich. When he isn't surfing around South Africa with guests or showing them Africa's bush life, he is teaching surf lessons and running his surf camp.

"Amazing experience and wonderful people."
The surf instructors were super friendly and super professional. There is great comraderie amongst the guests, which are internationally diverse groups.
Amber and Derek (day & night managers) were helpful from the get-go. Welcoming, friendly and helpful -- it was easy to feel at home right away. Beautiful, casual location good for quiet relaxation including a massage if you like.

I had an amazing time with Ali and Rich. They are so friendly, they took care of me. We had great time surfing and Braai with everybody. The backpackers is so nice with a big garden, we are in the water with 2 min walking. It's really clean, we have towels and they clean the bed every morning ! Perfect...
