Surf Guide Full Day

Jeffreys Bay has 9 different surf breaks in town, from the World famous Super Tubes to the fun Lower Point to gentle Kitchen Windows. There are thus waves for all levels of surfers and let a local surf guide with intimate knowledge of these waves get you to the best break on the day.

The client is collected from their accommodation and taken for two, two-hour session at the best wave on the day in Jeffreys Bay. This can also be a surfari to have a session at St Francis Bay or Cape St Francis.

The surf break is selected according to the client’s skill level and request. The guide will surf with the client pointing out the best entry and exit points and the best take off zones to catch waves.

Some surfing experience needed and group limited to three per guide.


The surf guide collects the client from their accommodation. Together they do a surf check and then decide on the clients ability and preference what break to surf. Before they paddle out the guide gives a break down of the surf break pointing out entry and exit points as well as the best take off zone markers. The guide paddles out with the client and they enjoy a two hour session together, with the guide pointing out approaching set waves and the best take off zones. After the session the guide enjoys a coffee and light lunch with the client at a local coffee shop to discuss the session and surfing in general. The client can then return to their accommodation for a rest before the afternoon session.After the afternoon session the client is returned to their accommodation.

For St Francis Bay/ Cape St Francis the client is collected from their accommodation and drive to either of the two breaks. After a two hour session the guide takes the client on a tour to see the famous Bruces Beauties, the amazing canal system of St Francis and the calamari port. You have lunch together and the return to J-Bay.

I went surfing with Etienne for two days. He gave me some great pointers to improve my surfing, showed me the best spots around the bay (entrances and exits), and was really flexible working with my schedule and the type of swell. He met me at my hotel and made the extra effort to drop off and pick up a board on the days I was guiding myself. Most everyone around town knows Etienne, so it makes for an easy experience in and out of the water. Really nice guy, very knowledgeable and good equipment if you need to rent. My girlfriend also took a lesson and his team had her standing up within a few hours. Definitely recommend.

Angelo was a great teacher, and it was so much fun catching my first waves! J-Bay is a great place for beginners to learn how to surf since the water is relatively shallow and the waves seem to be relatively tame as well (at least while I was there).
