Surfing Lessons

Learning to surf is a fun experience, no matter your age! From young to old, anyone can experience the thrill of surfing!

Surf’s Up Surf School does not make any outrageous claims. Surfing does require a basic level of fitness and some physical ability. That said, in our experience anyone who wants it, and is willing to make some effort to get it, can experience surfing within a lesson or two!

Willingness is all that is required.

While we cannot guarantee your achievements, we can most definitely guarantee the quality and professionalism of our service.

Our coaches are well trained and their goal is to give you a fun experience while getting value for your money.

We use the correct equipment to suit your level of experience, taking into consideration your height and weight as an important determining factor in your choice of equipment.

We structure our surf lessons properly, with a safety briefing, a theoretical introduction and a proper warm up!

We understand this surf spot and therefor know how dangerous the ocean can be if misunderstood. The wrong tide, swell or wind can not only spoil a surf lesson, it can pose a serious risk.


If conditions aren’t suitable for surfing, we don’t surf. There’s no point in taking unnecessary risks in the pursuit of something that is meant to be fun!

Whether you want to learn how to do it properly, or just experience surfing to have some fun, the best place to do it is at Surf’s Up Surf School.

And whether you are big or small, young or old, a complete novice or an experienced ocean user, if you want to learn surfing, Surf’s Up Surf School is the place to be!

We are based permanently at Diaz Beach, in Mossel Bay, on the beautiful Garden Route of South Africa, within easy driving distance of Still Bay, George, Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna and Buffels Bay.

Please note that, because surfing is dependent on oceanic and weather conditions, which change on a daily basis, lessons may have to be rescheduled.
