Jeffrey's Bay is considered one of the 5 best surfing destinations in the world and popularly known for the annual surf contest.

It's only 1 hour drive from Port Elizabeth, Addo National Elephant park for the big 5 experience as well as one hour drive to the world highest bungee-jumping.  Furthermore it is a popular destination because of the blue flag beach as well as a wide range of seafood on offer, bird-watching, fishing and boat-trips.


The Surf Camp is located on top of the dunes and within a walking distance from the surf spots, 5 minutes from town centre and all the surf shops like Quicksilver or Billabong, 20 minutes walking distance to Supertubes where they host the annual World Surf League contest.

The rooms vary from dorm rooms, twin room en suite and double en suite rooms. There are communal bathrooms for the dorms as well as three fully equipped kitchens that guest can use for self catering purposes furthermore there is a restaurant on site which offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and pizza. The hostel also has a funky fun bar which hosts and offers amongst others happy hour specials regularly and themed parties, a normal day is filled with activities that are on offer at the hostel like township tours, sand-boarding, waterfall tour or other excursions.


 Jeffreys Bay is home to the longest most perfect right hand point break in the world. It offers different surf breaks like Kitchen windows, Magnatubes, Boneyard and Supertubes amongst others.
From what was a hippie town in the 60's and 70's, it has transformed to one of the world's best surf destinations.

Kitchen windows, an A-frame wave which can be surfed left or right, thrives with South West wind and is better on a low tide. The best time is between May and September. Kitchen windows is located right on the doorstep of the surf camp.

Magnas is the fastest wave in J-bay working best with South West winds, and very swell consistent.

Boneyards boasts a short intense wave, shallow and challenging better for advanced surfers. On its best days it barrels.

Supertubes possibly the best right point break in the world, works on any direction swell, 3 feet and up is good anything smaller is dangerous. It can be shallow on the rocks and takes some manoeuvring to find the key holes. Hosts the anual WSL surf contest, which takes place in winter during which the waves are at their best. Supertubes is a 5 minutes drive from the Surf Camp.

The best surfing times in Jbay is between May and September (Southern Hemisphere Winter). The conditions are intermittent in summer but there are good surf days.
