Jeffreys Bay Surf Museum

Where: Jeffreys Bay

Price per person:

On Request

Stop anyone with a wetsuit tan, anywhere in the world and ask 'Excuse me where is the number one surf spot in South Africa?' and despite a lifetime of overexposure to saltwater between their ears their answer will be effortless 'J-Bay Dude!'. Jeffrey's Bay has been lovingly shortened to J-Bay not only because it has a nice ring to it but because with so many waves to catch in one lifetime there is little time to for long words when you have a long board under your arm. Waves at J-Bay are the most dreamed about waves on South Africa's coastline and living up to its legend J-Bay sends famous 'Super Tubes' to shore; a point break right-hander wave... with the occasional dolphin or whale audience to make for radical witnesses.
