Six Week Surf Adventure - Cape Town to Durban

Ride the peak swell season in the surfing Mecca of South Africa

This six week South African Road trip, situated in peak swell season, is the perfect way to see all that the South African coastline has to offer. The stretch of coast from Cape Town to Durban boasts hundreds of world-class waves, some right on the road and others off-the-beaten-track. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced surfer, you'll leapfrog your surfing to a new dimension and gain a deeper insight into this wonderfully diverse country. The epic combination of world-class waves, seasoned local guides and professional surf coaches make for an unbeatable South African road trip experience. However, it's not all about the surf, as you'll also have time to explore the best of what each location has to offer travellers, including a spot of bungee jumping, a hike up Table Mountain or a safari game drive.

Riders also help out with several carefully selected projects, meaning you'll get the chance to give something back to the local community and gain more insight into South Africa at the same time. Rest assured that Ticket to Ride always supports sustainable projects, with a focus on the long-term benefits, so expect to get involved with schemes for the underprivileged youth in South Africa, as well as pressing environmental and medical issues.

On this trip the main focus is surfing! July through to August is the best time for swell in South Africa, as there are big groundswells that march up the coast. You'll get coached by some of South Africa’s best coaches, including two national coaches, ensuring that your surfing continuously improves. The coaches will use both in-water and beach coaching, and the range of perspectives you get from the different coaches will help to ensure that all aspects of your surfing are covered. This trip is not exclusive to surfers with experience, as you'll always be coached to your ability thanks to our deep pool of resources in South Africa.

Next course dates: 6th July to 17th August 2017

Every stop has shops were you can purchase ingredients to cook, as well as cafes and restaurants to discover. The hand picked surf camps have kitchen facilities for those keen to prepare meals. We advise budgeting around £10/£15 for all 3 meals. There is an optional food add-on for £50 per week which includes all your breakfasts and 5 evening meals.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What temperature is the water in South Africa? It varies massively, starting in Cape Town with fairly chilly waters around 14 celsius, and then getting progressively warmer as you head up the coast through J-Bay and towards Durban, where you can jump in your baggies / bikini or overheat in your suit!

How often will we surf? On the whole you will be surfing at least once a day but more often than not it will be twice-daily! Other activities, including going on safari, will be done when the waves aren't so good. You will surf a lot, so bring your paddling arms!

How long are the drives from one stop to the next? This really depends but the shortest drive will be around two hours and the longest seven hours. Don't worry though as we always add in a snack / toilet stop for the longer drives.

Which airport should I fly into and out of? Book your flight to Cape Town International Airport and leave from Durban Airport (also known as King Shaka International Airport).
