  • Had an awesome lesson here. They helped us with a last minute booking. Tristan is a great coach who really helped me by suggesting alternative techniques where I struggled. He made sure we were comfortable in the waves at all times. Definitely the place to go for surf lessons.
  • I had a great experience with my coach, Tristan, he was very patient and encouraged me when I was not feeling brave! I managed to stand up which I am very proud of! Thank you Son Surf School and especially Tristan.
  • We arrived late Sunday and Pierre met us at 7:00 PM to hire (rent) a board, wet suit and booties for a early Monday morning session. Pierre also was extremely knowledgeable and took extra time detailing where the prefect break was for me. If you're in J Bay and need anything...Son Surf School will hook you up. "NOT" another surf school/surf shop!!!
  • I had four awesome lessons with Son Surf School - three with Kelvin (the head teacher/owner). What an awesome guy! Not usual to find someone so talented who is also so able to teach. And he helped me so much - I was starting to feel like riding the waves was an impossible task... but he got me up and riding and now I can go home proud (and tell people I surfed in J Bay). Kelvin and Pierre also took some awesome video footage of my lessons. So I can even prove it! and watching yourself is actually incredibly helpful in terms of understanding how your standing and what you're doing with your arms. (which can sometimes be difficult to remember when you're paying attention to all sorts of things as a new surfer). Thank you so much again Kelvin, and Pierre for helping me organise everything. and hopefully see you cool cats next year!
  • Excellent video training surf session. Was so helpful to improve my technique.
