When it comes to individual or family recreational activities, there is never a shortage of options in South Africa. But when you live in the Eastern Cape, it’s practically criminal to not take advantage of our vast coastline and learn to surf and swim.
There is no better place to learn the ropes and tricks of the trade than at the Jeffrey’s Bay Surf School, which is based in a world renowned surfing destination.
Jeffrey’s Bay Surf School has been teaching people – adults and kids, how to master the surf board and be safe on the waves for the past 18 years. They make sure to offer not only a fun and informative experience, but also a safe and professional environment to enjoy it in.
The Surf School was started in 2000 by South African World Champion Surfing Coach, Etienne Venter. He has been the Eastern Province Surfing Provincial Team Coach since 2001, South African National Surfing Team Coach since 2008 and ISA World Champion Coach 2013. Venter is assisted by Tahra Uren and Tim Baard, both qualified surfers and coaches, who have become top ranked Pro Surf Tour surfers.
For parents, whose kids are passionate about surfing, Jeffrey’s Bay Surf School offers from an introduction into surfing for first timers to advanced surf lessons for those wanting to learn the skills that make surfing look so cool.
They also provide competitive coaching for those ready to show off what they can do in competitions with Venter’s guidance.
The highlight of the Surf Camp is where students can enjoy a few days off so that they can explore Jeffrey’s Bay including a guided visit to the local surf museum.
Remember that surfing is not just a summer activity – it’s something you or your kids can enjoy all year long! So, if you are looking to create fun memories with your kids, take them surfing at the Jeffrey’s Bay Surf School.
