  • STEP 1: Get in touch & share your travel preferences.

Fill out a 1 minute online questionnaire, which we’ll use to plan a trip tailored to your wave-riding needs, and what you want to do, see and experience. Click here to get started. 

  • STEP 2: Watch your dream surf trip come to life.

Your surf guide will chat to you via email, and send you a draft itinerary & price. Share what you like, and what you don’t. We tailor your trip to your vision. With local knowledge and relationships, we help our travellers save money and have a great time. 

  • STEP 3: Make your way to South Africa, worry free.

Once you’re happy with your itinerary and all of your questions are answered, we’ll send you a link to secure your booking. Your final itinerary (subject to swell conditions, of course) and all details will be emailed to you via PDF before your arrival, so it’s all in one place.

  • STEP 4: Let the good times roll. 

Your surf guide will pick you up from the airport, and safely guide you through every step of your trip- ensuring you have the best time under the African sun!

MEET SOME OF OUR PAST VISITORS

  • I stayed with Ruan for a month in Cape Town. I’d never really considered going to South Africa for a surf trip but the waves completely exceeded my expectations and the trip in general was just non stop good times and all round amazing experience.
    Ruan and his crew of mates are absolute legends and had really good local knowledge of when and where to get waves.
    Over the month we consistently surfed a range of quality waves, starting with a long peeling right hand reef and a few wedgdey beach breaks on the east coast and then some super fun beaches around Capetown.
    The real Jewell in the crown and the highlight for me was definitely the west coast, towards the end of our trip we surfed a few solid reef breaks and an absolutely epic A frame beachy in the middle of the dessert with no one but us out.
    We also managed to get up to Namibia and score skeleton bay, I won’t even begins to describe how good it was.
    All in all the trip ended up being one of the best months of my life filled with plenty of Barrells, beers and biltong!

I’m really impressed how passionate you are about showing your guests a good time and how you specifically planned my trip with everything I was up to. Everything was about fun and seeing beautiful, as well as local places. And your food is soo yummy! Your dogs are lovely. I’m gonna miss you all. You made me feel so comfy, can’t thank you enough for the great time I had!

  • Sick waves. Amazing places. Ruan is an absolute legend and showed us a whole lot more than we could possibly of seen flying solo. Lekker times.

  • We got treated better than in a 5-star hotel. The breakfast is topclass, the rooms are cleaned every day, and you find yourself in an incredible area with tons of activities to enjoy. Best thing, the hosts! A young couple that travelled around the world, ready to tell you their story on how they quit their job to start their surf business. Giving them the opportunity to enjoy a lifestyle one can only dream of. Cool to hear as only few people are brave enough to pursue dreams like they do.

A SURF TRIP
OUT OF
THE ORDINARY

Saffa Adventure & Surf Tours specialises in finding you some of the best waves in South Africa. Guiding you to waves you’ve probably never heard of (and neither have the 74 other surfers at your local break), which means you get access to a whole lot of amazing surf in uncrowded lineups.

We offer daily surf guide experiences, surf holidays, and surf accommodation

Our daily surf guide experiences and surf holidays are fully customizable. Put simply, our goal is to safely deliver you (surfers and bodyboarders) to the South African waves you’ve been dreaming of, while ensuring that your surf travel experience is an unforgettable one. 

If you’re looking for a rad surf trip off the beaten path and without the crowds, put South Africa at the top of your list. With uncrowded line-ups, seemingly endless barrels, incredible wildlife, and unforgettable landscapes, South Africa is a surf destination out of the ordinary.  

South Africa is world-renowned for its variety of pumping, uncrowded and consistent waves  – but, like most other untouched gems of the world, it’s not always easy to find the right wave on the right day. That’s where we come in. 

We take the hassle out of planning a surf trip, leaving you to focus on the stoke.
