Overview

SurfJBAY is a surf school / sandboarding activity center based in Jeffrey's Bay. We offer beginner surf lessons for those who would like to experience surfing for the first time. Our surf coaches are very experienced surfers that are internationally qualified and very helpful and friendly. We do not believe in doing massive groups at a time as we feel everybody should be helped equally to get the most out of your first time surfing. Our lessons are personalized fun and safe. We offer free GoPro photos for beginners and free video analysis for our intermediate surfers. If you are a good surfer and do not require surfing lessons, our sandboarding is the next best thing to do in Jbay, with fast dunes and top of the range equipment to get you cruising down the thrilling slopes of Paradise beach.
