Legend has it that the father of South African surfing- John Whitmore, discovered the waves at Jeffrey's Bay in the late 1950s as he drove up the famous "Garden Route" between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. As he stood in amazement at the side of the road looking, it would have been extremely hard to mistake those corduroy lines perfectly wrapping around a point, giving what could have been a 1.2 km ride!
Jeffrey’s Bay is a picturesque town situated on the coast of the Eastern Cape providence, bracketed by a beautiful range of mountains and its world renowned surfing beaches.

Supertubes is the main wave and directly out front from the lodges. This long (on a good day up to 500m) right hand point breaks fast, has long walls and barrel sections and can hold up to 12ft!
Kitchen Windows is almost an A-frame left/right peak on the main beach that is a great fun wave. Other breaks include; “Magna Tubes” and “Salad bowls”; both fast powerful rights breaking over reef/rock, “Tubes”; a short, perfect hollow wave, “The Point” is everything else you could possibly want from a wave. The waves here tend to be a little smaller than those at Boneyards and Supers. The difference is, that you will have a much longer ride here than at the other two. “Boneyards; a left hand point break and “Albatross” an uncrowded right hander that breaks over a sand bar.
There are almost two dozen named breaks in this area from J-Bay down towards Cape St Francis, mostly point breaks and reefs, but a few beach breaks and river mouth breaks as well!
TIP: Don’t surf during the change of light- very early morning / late evening and also avoid murky river mouth breaks after a lot of rain.
