Surf Instructor Training Course, South Africa

I went on the trip from January to March this year. I’ve been traveling to other awesome surfers dream places like Panama, Costa Rica, Ecuador and many spots in Europe, but the 3 months road trip along the “Gardenroute” at South Africas east coast was by far the best surf travel experience of my life. I learned so much because it’s an ongoing coaching every day which is unique! By the end of the trip you can also become a ISA surf instructor – I passed the exam – and heaps thanks to Chris Stevens here at EGY, he passed me on some of his contacts and boom! After a couple of mails and two Skype interviews I found a job in a surf camp in Costa Rica starting only 4 days after leaving South Africa. I did the Ticket to Ride trip to change my office to the beach and my working pants to a pair of board shorts and here I am – I’m loving it!


2 Week Island Hopping Indonesia Surf Adventure

Chris and Luke were great trip leaders, and really helpful with the surf coaching. I can not stress how good the trip was, would go as far as saying trip of a lifetime!
