“Surfing with Stoked should be on your To Do List right after Visiting Table Mountain!”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

I went on a 5 day surf trip along Garden Route with Stoked School of Surf and it was probably the best 5 days I had in South Africa so far. The Stoked team is just awesome!

If you only have some hours for surfing, do a surf lesson with them - you definitely won’t regret it! If you have some days, I highly recommend doing one of the trips that Stoked School of Surf offers.

Michelle is not only an enthusiastic and brilliant surf coach; she is also a wonderful tour guide and knows the best restaurants along Garden Route and all the hidden bars where surfers hang out. The 5 days were not only a surf trip, but also a perfect way to explore Garden Route (incl. a wine tasting, visiting Knysna Heads, touching elephants in Knysna Elephant Park, and enjoying the beautiful scenery all along Garden Route)
Another cool thing about Stoked Surf School: they are a mobile school which means they pick you up and go to the beach that has the best conditions on that day. Believe me when I say, that there is no better start to your surf experience than being picked up by a VW car with a lot of surfboards on top!

Thanks so much for the awesome time, Stoked Team!

“Completely Stoked on the Garden Route”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Wow what an experience! One week later and I am still stoked. Simply put, it has been the best surf road trip of my life. From the outset Michelle had planed the itinerary with military precision and ensured that the quality of all items and activities was nothing short of exceptional.

1) The accommodation arranged was extremely comfortable - although formally called backpackers, "flash packers" would be a more accurate description. Personally, I have stayed in hotels an guest houses that did not offer the same level as comfort as these.

2) In terms of surfing breaks, Michelle ensured that we always surfed the best waves possible on the day and gave us flexibility to chose between breaks. I thoroughly enjoyed surfing every break getting some good waves on each session.

3) The activities scheduled on the trip complemented the surfing and allowed us to see a bit more of the places we visited. Some examples include wine tasting, bunny jumping, elephant feeding and excellent dinners and night life in all towns. All of these were great experiences with an amazing group of people.

I would highly recommend this trip surfers and non surfers alike. The breaks surfed are some of the best waves in South Africa and will provide an excellent way to see and experience the garden route.

“Get Stoked!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Michelle is awesome and Stoked Surf is amazing! i'm from Santa Cruz, a California capital of surf so my expectations were set hi. Michelle was inspiring, fun, smart, and helpful, creating a personalized experience. It's great that she's a mobile school and can go where the surf is best. Plus, Muizenberg has the most consistent, long beginner surf break I've ever seen.
