We had a great time between JBay waves. They are huge and unforgettable. The trainers are dope and really cool. If you stop in Jeffreys Bay, it’s worth a try. Hope to go back one day. Yeah

We took a lesson with SJ, she was very stimulating and easy going. A day later we went to catch some waves on our own and renting the suit and board was also pretty cheap. Would recommend!

The crew in jbay is great. We booked 4 days private lessons with SJ. She's just wonderful. We were practically on the board after 4 days. With Your know how and your big heart and patience, she's just the perfect teacher.
