  • Amazing trip thank you so much. They looked after me from start to finish (including taking me to hospital after I had a run in with my board). They nailed all the small touchs including epic breakfasts and fully stocked beer fridge but most importantly Ru (my guide) knew where to find surf. His knowledge of the breaks around SA / Namibia is incredible and there is no shortage of options from slabs to nice mellow beach waves to more reefy point breaks. Most of these are within a short drive and you are always guaranteed amazing scenery enroute.

    Thank you so much I will be back!

Hi, I had the absolute pleasure of spending about 10 days this summer with Ru and Tracey exploring and adventuring a very small sampling of what South Africa has to offer (can't wait to explore more w them). It's kind of amazing how much they were able to pack into that 10 days. Ru and Tracey design
