2 Hour Surf Lesson Jeffreys Bay

Jeffreys Bay

Activity Description

Island Vibe Surf School operates 7 days a week and offer 3 time slots. Lesson duration is two hours and include all equipment needed during the surf lessons. The 2 hour surf lesson is broken into a short theory chat on the beach, where students will practice what is being taught whilst still on the sand. Then it’s time to test the surf theory by taking to the water. This is the fun part of the surf lesson. Surfing is a true conviction of “practice makes perfect”, and one thing is for sure, you will want to practice to feel that thrill over and over again of standing on your first wave!

Island Vibe Surf Camp instructors are highly qualified and have been surfing themselves since a tender age and worked on various surf camps around the world.

A perfect wave for beginners is right on main beach. This is a gentle beach break that breaks on sand.

Right in front of Island Vibe we have a wave known as Kitchen Windows for intermediate surfers. It is a gentle rolling wave that actually breaks to the left and right as it peaks. There are no reefs to unsettle you and most of the time totally uncrowded. Kitchen Windows is the surf break of choice for Island Vibe Surf Camp. Surf lessons are conducted there because it’s the least intimidating of all the J-Bay breaks, and boosts chances of actually standing during your first surf lesson!

Me and my friend we absolutely loved it! Gabriel was a great instructor and really did care about the progress we all made! I'd definitely do it again if I'll ever happen to be around Jeffreys Bay, also highly recommend to anyone who has never tried surfing before - Gabriel will definitely help you to stand on the surf board and make you focus on your mistakes! Thank you! :) - Simona Senanova

Excellent and friendly instructor. Great group size and overall awesome experience. Thanks :) - Daniel

I had a great time on the lesson. The instructors were helpful and knowledgeable, and were good at scanning the crowd of surfers as best as possible to identify who needed extra help while we were in the water. The lesson came recommended and I would continue to recommend it - Alex
