On our tour along the garden route we decided to take some surf lessions and therefor contacted Hermann. There're a few people who offer surf lessons in that area but we decided for Hermann because the contact via mail already was really friendly and personal. And it turned out to be the best choice.
We met a parking lot directly at the beach in Buffels Bay. At first we had some theory, which took at the most 30 minutes. Sounds short but Hermann explained the most important things and then we went in the water. In the water he explained everything else on concrete situations and examples. Even though we were all on a beginner level Hermann managed it to teach us so well that everyone stood on the board somehow. It was a lot of fun for us and we enjoyed it so much. Hermann was really patient and spread a great mood. The time went super fast.
We took another lesson the next day and we would've loved to take many more lessons if we would've had the time for that.
We highly recommend Unravel Surf Travel for surf lessons. Not just because you get really good lessons. You also get to know really great people. Hermann and his wife Jenya, who also spend the time with us and took some GoPro-photos, are really sweet. They do what they love and that's what you can feel when you're with them.
We were really impressed that they also make some time to teach kids from townships how to surf, to get them out of their usual surrounding and onto the boards. The Surfer Kids Non-Profit is great thing!
We hope that we get back to South Africa soon, so that we can experience the Unravel Surf Travel Tour with Hermann and Jenya! :)
