May is great time of year to surfari around South Africa, especially if you're headed north. The land and sea temperatures get warmer as you venture further away from the Cape. The winter storms start to roll in fanning swell up the East Coast producing beautiful line ups.
We were fortunate to have 5 weeks on the road exploring our unspoilt country and coastline starting in Kruger dipping into Mozambique and then snaking along the coast from Durban all the way back to our home, Cape Town. When the surf forecast looked unfavourable, we'd head inland to explore the snow capped highlands of the Drakensberg, the incredible wildlife of the Kruger and the craft beer breweries of the Midlands.
Below are a few images that capture the highlights of our 5 week South African Surfari:

SURF LESSONS - GROUP & PRIVATE
In the need for some Vitamin D, a healthy dose of Vitamin Sea after being locked down for so long? Bring your Lockdown Lover, your sister, your brother, your Houseparty Mates or your Zoom Date and experience the 'stoke' of surfing with us.
A 1.5 hour lesson includes the use of all equipment and instruction from a qualified surf coach. Our surf school is mobile getting you to the beach with the best conditions on the day. Typically, during winter we operate at Muizenberg and during summer we operate in Big Bay. If you form your own private group of family and friends (recommended at this time), you may let us know your beach preference at the time of booking. For our regular group lessons, we will join you up with others we have surfing that day (we require a minimum of 4 persons to operate a group lesson). Once beaches are open and we are able to operate again, lessons will take place with a strict COVID-19 safety plan in place to ensure the safety of participants and staff.
