Surf Lessons in South Africa

With the beach to ourselves most of the year, the soft easy, gentle gradient of Coffee Bay beach makes it the perfect spot to learn to surf or to work on improving your surfing technique and skills. Conditions are often perfect for lessons with super safe, waist deep water for your surf lessons. We use the best learner specific soft boards, and as you progress we can also supply more advanced boards for the intermediate surfer. Our focus is on you learning to surf quickly, effectively and with style; secondly as with all things ‘Coffee Shack’, is that you have ‘FUN” and enjoy the experiences whilst learning something new.

It serves delicious home-cooked meals, including vegetarian and vegan options, along with excellent coffee.
