What we love about the Pumula area is the lush bush areas, the real sense of community and great village life.

 

The Surf Camp is unique in location, almost in the bush but just a short walk to the beach, our philosophy is to show people how we live our life, and for guests to feel at home and become one of the family.

 

Our staff are locals, with a great knowledge of the local surf, surf spots, and the whole area. They will take you to all the best places.

 

There are tons of hikes, nature reserves, dive sites, restaurants etc all close by. For the adrenaline junkies, just a short 40min drive away, you can do the longest, highest zipline or take a swing on the highest gorge swing. We are open all year round, as we have continuous sunshine all year, warm waters, and good waves. The average winter temperature is anywhere between 18 and 25 degrees.

 

We welcome all levels of surfing and all levels of yoga, from total beginners to advanced. Whatever your ability and even if you just want to come chill and not do anything, you are more than welcome to come check us out

THE ACTIVITIES

Our Summer season is from September right through to March. Winter from March through to October. Ocean conditions are great, warm water all year round, summer is the ultimate time to learn to surf, and winter is best for getting the right waves for the more advanced surfers

 

Normal Camp activities vary according to the ocean tides, our surf lessons work better on low tides, so we time camp life around surf lessons.

 

Early morning low tides: early rise, smoothie to start, off to the beach, we sometimes do breakfast on the beach and yoga on the beach, so we head to the beach early and hang out till lunch time, so surfing, yoga and eating on the beach.

 

Some mornings yoga will be done on the yoga deck before surfing. We go with the flow and see what works best for you, our customer and we figure out exact times once you are here.

 

We do surf lessons daily 1-2 hours a day, we can do private lessons or group lessons depending on what you want. Lessons consist of theory and practical. We will head down to the beach together. All equipment is provided. We do take photos of your surfing lessons so you can come home with some great shots of you in the ocean. We do surfboard rentals as well.

 

We also have more activities available:

  • YOGA
  • FISHING
  • DIVING
  • CHILLING AT THE BEACH
  • TOUR TO THE LENGENDARY WEDGE SURFBOARDS FACTORY
  • LOCAL TOURS AND ADVENTURES: Educational, Nature, Cultural, Extreme, Sports & Fitness, Health & Beauty
