5 Day Surf Package - Coffee Bay

Wild Coast

Activity Description

Coffee Shack is idyllically located on the beach in Coffee Bay, which is located on the Wild Coast of the Easter Cape Province of South Africa.

Coffee has pristine beaches that cater for all levels of surfing. The Indian Ocean provides us with warm, blue sub-tropical conditions with a pleasant average water temperature of 20.5C/69F. With the beach to ourselves most of the year, the soft easy, gentle gradient of Coffee Bay beach makes it the perfect spot to learn to surf or to work on improving your surfing technique and skills.

The 5 day surf package is all inclusive and tailored to suit each individual participant’s level of surfing, which can range from complete beginners to intermediate surfers who want to improve.
Participants are taught the basics of surfing which involves exploring the theory, equipping them with the essential knowledge necessary for a solid foundation in surfing.
