R50 for 2 hour surf lessons, warm water and good conditions make Coffee Bay an excellent place to learn to surf. Directly in front of the backpackers, Bomvu Bay occasionally offers a very nice convenient right for the more accomplished surfers. Coffee Bay has nice point and consistent beach break, for all levels of surfer, and there are many other surf spots up and down the Wild Coast, about which Dave, the owner, is very knowledgeable.
