If you are looking for a highly personalized experience with true local guides, this is the place to be.” – Maxime Snick, Belgium (via TripAdvisor)

I loved every second. Thank you for teaching me so much about the ocean! I can’t wait to go on another surf with you!– Niklas, Germany (via Instagram) 

The Overberg offers a wide variety of uncrowded waves that are suited for those wanting to learn to surf in one of the world’s most beautiful locations. 

Our learn-to-surf trips are aimed at teaching beginners more about the ocean, and the basics of surfing in a fun and relaxed environment. Our beginner surf trips usually last between 2 and 6 days (the length of the trip is completely up to you). Your trip includes everything from transport, to a personal coach, wetsuit and board rental, accommodation, waterfall hikes and more. 

Your surf guide will meet you at your pickup point (usually Cape Town International Airport), and transport you safely to our surf lodge in the beautiful Overberg valleys. The drive from Cape Town is 1.5 hours along one of South Africa’s most scenic routes- Clarence Drive.

Our surf lodge is 100 metres from the beach, and surrounded by a variety of beginner-friendly surf spots, the perfect introduction to surfing in South Africa. 

You’ll begin each day with a hearty breakfast. Your daily activities will consist of surf sessions, waterfall hikes, experiencing authentic South African cuisine, and getting to know the friendly local South African culture. We also offer a wide range of optional adventure activities: everything from safari game drives, to seal snorkelling, wine-tasting tours and more. 

Our surf trips are personalised, and tailored to your needs. Whether you are a laid-back traveller looking for a relaxing surf holiday; or an adrenaline junkie looking for an adventure-filled holiday, we’ve got you covered. Get in touch to start planning your trip with us.
