TTR South Africa Surf Road Trip 2010
All those years ago, when Marlon was just a twinkle in his eye, and there wasn’t one grey hair to be seen, Pete’s winters looked a little different. He ventured closer to the equator, taking gap year groups on a surf road trip around South Africa’s coastline.
Bringing together a group of frothers wanting to improve their surfing out the back, Pete and the guys from Ticket To Ride set off on a 3 month trip, stopping off at some of the best surf spots in the world.
One of the most iconic surf spots in the world is Jeffrey’s Bay.
Cue the obligatory selection of questionable haircuts and classic post-surf ska music. Your very first surf trip is a rite of passage. Going on a South Africa surf trip certainly give you a taster of the variety of waves that can be experienced around the world.
More confidence in bigger waves, better fitness, a taste of the local culture and meeting like-minded people come part and parcel with exploring the world’s best surf destinations. And if you’ve chosen a surf trip round South Africa you might see the occasional dolphin too.
We always manage to sneak off somewhere in the winter. Wanting to expand our knowledge of the surf breaks across the globe is pretty addictive. Whether it’s a few hours’ drive nearby in Europe or the other side of the world. Surf exploration not something that is exclusive to the post-school, pre-uni contingency.
Are you going on a trip somewhere any time soon?
We want to know where you’re heading. The likelihood is that one of the Kingsurf crew has been there (or somewhere near) before. Between us, we’ve surfed quite a few places. From the almost-frozen waters of Scotland and Japan, to the tropics of Indonesia and Mexico. We might be able to give you some tips on where to go, the local etiquette, the best food to find, or sweetest accommodation.
