  • Today we had our first surf lesson in Knysna with Matt. It was the hammer! Matt gave us all the instructions and then sent us directly to the first waves! The feeling of sliding over the waves is great! We can only recommend the visit!

  • Here we were in the course of a surf course for my companion. This is one of the many eerily extensive beaches that South Africa has to offer and absolutely recommended.
