Become A Freelance Surf Guide - South Africa Surf Tours

Become A Freelance Surf Guide

We have been receiving a lot of enquiries from people all over the world and South Africa with interest in becoming a surf guide, a.k.a the greatest job in the world. As a surf guide, you get to travel to deserted beaches to find empty line ups to share with our guests.

Our priorities when hand-picking our Surf guides are: 

  • Passion for what you do. You need to have passion for the ocean, nature and showing guests a great time in and out of the water.
  • Being social and interactive with guests.
  • Lifesaving skills, because the ocean is unpredictable at times and you need to be confident in your ability to save someone.
  • Confidence in your own surfing ability and the ability to bring good vibes to the water.
  • Relevent qualifications (Coaching, lifesaving, ect.).
  • Respect, humilty and no ego.

If you are interested, you can send your CV and please include a short video clip, introducing yourself, telling us about who you are and some footage of you surfing.

You can send the above to info@southafricasurftours.com with the subject line – “Surf Guide App”.
