Surfing is high on the agenda here - owner Dave was a Pro-Am World Championship title holder and still surfs competitively. Surf lessons are given by our patient, skilled, professional instructors and occasionally Dave, if you are lucky. We have always gone out of our way to have the cheapest, best quality lessons in the world, they used to be "free", and now cost ONLY ZAR50 ($7usd) for 2 a hour surf lesson, with board and wetsuit included. We never have more than 5 surfers in a group, so you are ensured some personal attention.
There is no better place to start than the pristine beaches of Coffee Bay, in the warm, blue, sub-tropical Indian Ocean averaging a pleasant 20.5 C / 69 F with perfect super safe, waist deep water for your surf lessons. 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. 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.
We offer a variety of different learn to surf course options to suit everyone’s needs. We always try to be flexible as well, so if you can’t find what you're looking for then give us a call and I'm sure we can sort something out for you.
We offer morning and afternoon lessons, and once a week a beach day, where we spend the day on the beach, learning to surf, chilling, and soaking up some sunshine, lunch and some more surfing. The beach day and the daily surf lessons are only ZAR50 ($7usd) per person, equipment included.
The longer you surf the better you'll get... then comes the addiction. Stay a bit longer, get your surfing to the next level and take your first steps to becoming an intermediate. The Five Day Learn to Surf Package is for you, it includes accommodation, meals, 9 surf lessons, shuttle from Mthatha. Of course you'll also get more time to hang in the Coffee Shack hammocks and live the dream. CONTACT US FOR INFO
For the more accomplished surfers, we have boards and wetsuits to hire at reasonable rates and surf wise Coffee Bay has a nice point and beach breaks, and is centrally located to base yourself if you want to go and surf some of the Wild Coast’s renowned right hand point breaks like Mdumbi and Mpuzi, to name two. Dolphins are plentiful. If you're doing a surf trip, there are many other spots up and down the Wild Coast. Dave's surfed them all and is a good source of info on local conditions.:
