An absolutely amazing place, thanks to all the Jah Shaka team for their generous hospitality, the most incredible food and making the Tee-Pees so gorgeous. Massive thanks to the surf instructors (mainly Seb and Benny) for their time and patience and putting up with my squeals of delight when I finally managed to 'catch some waves' (not sure you could...

I've done many surf trips all over the world and can honestly say Jah Shaka is really nice place to stay, surf (big thank you to a great surf instructor Jan), do yoga, go party and meet new friends all over the world. Jah Shaka team does an amazing job by taking care of every guest individually. I would definitely... More

I spent two amazing weeks at Jah Shaka surf camp. This was the first time I was surfing and I must say the instructors made it very easy for me. Theoretical and practical advices helped me to stood up on the board on my very first day. My first tree days I stayed in a tepee which I absolutely recomend... More

By the end of this trip there wasn't a single person who hadn't thought of giving up their lives back home and moving into Jah Shaka. Yes you learn to surf but what we didn't expect was to learn that surfing was a way to live. Something that I believe we all learned and took home with us. The other... More
