A large outdoor deck that overlooks the most magical view of lush green forests. An outdoor pizza oven and entertainment area, where they make the most delicious wood fired, homemade pizza's. The short walk to the beach is along the river and is so lovely. You will be very comfy here and you will feel at home straight away.

Program

The coastline of the surf camp is full of small rocky bays, estuaries and long sandy beaches, excellent for surfing, snorkeling, fishing, and diving. Most local beaches are protected by lifeguards and shark nets. The climate is subtropical so it’s warm all year round, meaning many days of surfing in bikini’s or board shorts or a shorty for winter.

There are 7 surf spots within a 10 minutes’ drive from the camp with a good variety of waves that work in different conditions, from point breaks to shallow sandbars, stretching out up to 150 meters from the shore break to the backline.

With the average summers swell size of 2-4 foot and 4-6 foot in winter. So Pumula Surf Camp’s surf instructors are always able to find a suitable, safe surfing environment to cater for your ability.
