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.

Dane Morris is an unbelievable teacher. Spending a week surfing with him has improved my surfing more than trying to surf by myself for the last 2 years. He's super chilled, super talented and, on a surfboard, he's the silver surfer ;-) When the waves weren't great, he took us sand boarding, which was also epic. I definitely recommend going... More

Surf-Jbay is a great little school! Yes it is a small outfit but this just means you get looked after even better! Our three children aged 16, 20 and 23 took lessons together and 1/2 of the time had 2 instructors! These guys know what they are doing and they love what they do. Downside was it was very difficult... More

We had booked a 2 hour surf lesson for this afternoon via the company's website. However no one from the company showed up at the designated meeting point and when we called the instructors mobile it went straight through to voicemail. So no surfing and our trip to Jeffery's Bay was wasted. Sad times!!! o(

I went to JBay with my wife and could not leave without catching some JBay's famous rights. As I did not want to surf alone (despite being an intermediate surfer), I looked for someone to guide me through and also give some hints on how to better my skills. Dane is a great partner and he will not only be... More

I’ve surfed for a while but I’m still not confident in big waves. However I felt 100% safe with Dane the owner and instructor. We paddled out at the point at J-Bay and he, showed the safest way to surf J-Bay and I got some amazing waves. He improved my surfing, my turning and even basic paddling. We had two... More
