Surfing the Garden Route

The coastal terrain of the Garden Route is rugged, with steep cliffs and thickly wooded ravines that snake up into the mountains. During winter, countless rivers and streams cascade towards the sea, filling up lakes and lagoons. The river water is rich in minerals, and runs the colour of cola – a translucent rust-red over the shallows, but black where the water runs deep. This creates interesting colours at many river-mouth surf breaks. The surf is best in mild north or northwest winds and a clean groundswell, particularly in autumn and spring. In winter, the surf can be often wild, especially when big cold fronts blast through.

Hitting the waves!


The Garden Route offers some of the best surfing spots in the world! The ocean is not like a football pitch, you never know how you’ll be surprised. It always challenges you. And not only when you are a beginner. Surfing requires a lot of persistence, dedication and hard work. And not only physical exertion but also a lot of mental concentration. Surfers’ skills are tested by their ability to control their board in difficult conditions, riding challenging waves, and executing manoeuvres. Lets start a day with a wave and end it up with a wave. If it’s a good or a bad day everything depends on the swell. The options are endless and there are very few things more special than enjoying a day of surfing in the Garden Route! As you become more familiar with the coastline you’ll learn that this is a possibility more often than you’d think! Surfing is a very adventurous sport that involves a lot of thrill and high risk. Let us take you on a adventure of a lifetime!

In no time at all, the Roche made it seem so easy. He gets an immediate feel for your capabilities and picks just the right waves, but doesn’t assume you won’t get it just because you’re a beginner! Loads of fun! Great experience!

We enjoyed the trip from the very beginning! Roche is an excellent host and helps you feel safe! Great surfing in the magnificent Garden Route!!
