Hi, so the surf school of and with Etiennne is quite small, but very nice and relaxed. The most important thing you learn about surfing is having fun. By the way, Etienne is also the coach of the national south african surfing team, which implies that he has a lot of experience to offer. We were complete beginners at surfing and wanted to have a quick test session, as we were only staying for one night in jeffreys bay. But as we had much more fun than expected, we also took the next morning session before we left. Wet suit and board are given by the surf school and are in good condition. We have reserved everything over our hotel, as they also recommended this surf school locally. Otherwise you can also check out the official Facebook site under “Jeffreys bay surf school” and get in contact with the guys over the messenger. Additionally, we can really recommend our guest house “Supertubes” which is a great place to stay in Jeffreys bay (also available on Tripadvisor).
