I have been visiting JBay again in 2014 and I had the pleasure to meet the school crew outside working hours. We had the opportunity to share a beer and spend the evening together, some talk during the next days and my feedback is if you're looking for great moments this is the place to start with. Andrew and Ryno... More

I had a really nice time with Andrew! When everybody went inside due to the rain, we went out in the sea! Crazy but Andrew was a really nice instructor and searched some starter waves for me! And after some of then I was able to stand! Don't worry about the softboard he will give you as a beginner it's... More

I decided to use Wavecrest after recommendations from my volunteer placement, and I will never look back! The instructors are so patient and make you feel like a professional from your first wave! on my return visit, I will be back, for my third lesson with them.

My experience with Wavecrest surfschool was great! Here is the story. I only had 24 hours to spend in Jeffreys Bay due to work and arrived Tuesday 6th of May.

We rented some surf boards for the day and were treated as friends. The service is great, they are super relaxed. We parked the boards at the shop while we had some lunch, got dry wetsuits when we got back. We were able to leave our clothes, sunnies and other bits at the shop and got a key to access... More

Andrew was incredibly patient and supportive when teaching 6 college girls how to surf! The weather was less than pleasant, but with his encouraging spirit and helping hand, we all had a blast and couldn't have asked for more. He is so thorough in his instruction that even the clumsiest of people can ride the waves!

I spent a week last month in Jeffreys Bay. I had a surf lesson every morning with Wavecrest Surf School. Andrew and Reyno were incredibly welcoming and supportive-- and their enthusiasm never flagged even when it seemed (to me at least) that I was never going to get the hang of it. But I did get the hang of it!... More
