24 November – 8 December 2018

Enjoying a view that can only be enjoyed from the top of Table Mountain!

Summer was getting into full swing by the time we headed into #SurfTrip35 and we did not waste a moment getting into the full swing of summer!

We’re super proud of the latest addition to our team-kit, our very own stylishly customized surf bus!

We started #SurfTrip35 with a drive-through of the spectacular Cape Peninsula enjoying some of nature’s most breathtaking views…

The Cape of Good Hope, at Cape Point, historical points of interest don’t get much more spectacular than this!

We then headed into the Hemel-en-Aarde Vallei (Valley of Heaven and Earth) to sample some local wines, before cruising into the semi-secluded Garden Route and the magic of Buffels Bay.

Cruising through the vineyards of the Cape, a visit to Cape Town and the Garden Route isn’t complete without a wine-farm wine-tasting experience.

And Buffels never disappoints us! We scored some fantastic surf, perfect for learning, progressing into the line-up, and ultimately ripping! Buffels really is a surfer’s dream come true!

There are so many waves in Buffels, and so few surfers, that sometimes it’s almost painful to watch so many beautiful waves empty waves… unless you’re the one surfing!

We also combined our daily surfing with several excursions and explored all the best adventures the Garden Route has to offer.

 

And no Garden Route Surf Trip with Unravel Surf Travel would be complete without visiting The Surfer Kids, a non-profit outreach initiative empowering some of the poorest and most marginalized local children through surfing. Guests on #SurfTrip34 had the unique opportunity to assist The Surfer Kids’ Surf Instructors with a day of surf coaching and fun!

As an optional extra we also always offer daily Yoga practice with a qualified instructor on all our Surf Trips, to help relieve tired muscles and focus the mind on enjoying every moment.

Yoga forms a natural part of our Surf Trips and ultimately feeds back into our surfing by allowing us to spend more time in the water!

#SurfTrip34 was an awesome experience and we said goodbye to another super-stoked and surfed-out group of happy clients!

Garden Route Surf Trip #34

3 – 17 November 2018

One of the most spectacular sunsets you’ll ever see is from the top of Table Mountain.

After a winter break (during which we headed to the warm sub-tropical waters of Mozambique for #SurfTrip33) we returned with summer to our beloved Garden Route, to start #SurfTrip34 on Africa’s Southern most tip!

While we work many other excursions and day-trips into our program, surfing will always be at the center of what we do.

We started #SurfTrip34 with a drive-through of the spectacular Cape Peninsula enjoying some of nature’s most breathtaking views…

Wine tasting at a family-owned traditional wine farm in the Heaven and Earth Valley, a wine tasting experience doesn’t get much more authentic than that.

And Buffels never disappoints us! We scored some fantastic surf, perfect for learning, progressing into the line-up, and ultimately ripping! Buffels really is a surfer’s dream come true!

Cruising the Buffels line-up, there are several different spots to choose from, all within walking distance from one another and all suitable for different levels of surfing.

We also combined our daily surfing with several excursions and explored all the best adventures the Garden Route has to offer.

Paragliding is one of the cleanest and most fun filled ways to experience an adrenaline rush while also appreciating the incredible beauty of the Garden Route.

And no Garden Route Surf Trip with Unravel Surf Travel would be complete without visiting The Surfer Kids, a non-profit outreach initiative empowering some of the poorest and most marginalized local children through surfing. Guests on #SurfTrip34 had the unique opportunity to assist The Surfer Kids’ Surf Instructors with a day of surf coaching and fun!

A day with The Surfer Kids NPO is fun, but is also serves as a healthy reminder of the reality of life for millions of people living in this beautiful country, and at the same time it’s a great way to support an initiative that works tirelessly to make a positive difference in the lives of those who need it most.

As an optional extra we also always offer daily Yoga practice with a qualified instructor on all our Surf Trips, to help relieve tired muscles and focus the mind on enjoying every moment.

Garden Route Surf Trip #32

10 – 24 Mar 2018


After a super-stoked and surfed-out experience with #SurfTrip29 and #SurfTrip30 in late 2017, we took a much needed break and left the Garden Route, before the local crowds that move with the school holidays packed the beaches full. But it never lasts too long and once the calm vibe of our laid-back coastline was restored, we headed into 2018 with #SurfTrip31 and #SurTrip32 lined up and ready to go!!


IMG_20180311_192819_065-01

We started #SurfTrip32 with a drive-through of the spectacular Hemel-en-Aarde Vallei (Valley of Heaven and Earth) to sample some local wines and then headed East, toward the semi-secluded Garden Route and the magic of Buffels Bay. We spent the next 10 days surfing as often as possible, soaking up every moment of surf that Buffels had to offer.


IMG_20180321_091048_492


And, as always, we scored some really awesome waves, perfect for learning to surf and progressing further into the line-up!

KwaZulu-Natal Surf Trip #27

This was a special Surf Trip because it was the first time that our eight-month old baby boy Kando joined Unravel Surf Travel for the full duration of a trip. And he loved it!!!

It was the third time that we returned to KwaZulu-Natal for a Surf Trip and for the third year in a row we traveled with a group of six clients, all eager to learn surfing while exploring the natural beauty of Southern Africa.

Jenya Zhivaleva Photography.www.yourfotostory.com

So that’s exactly what we did. We visited the Isimangaliso Wetland Park and Hluhluwe-Imfolozi, the oldest nature reserve in South Africa and home to Africa’s big five.

We traversed Oribi Gorge hunting for wild adventures !!!

And we surfed unspoilt beaches with empty line-ups where powerful waves teach progressive surfing skills.

Also, none of our surf trips would be complete without a daily healthy dose of Yoga, breathing clean fresh air, releasing tension from mind and body.

All in all, this was another incredible surf trip with Unravel Surf Travel and we’re happy to have sent home another group of stoked surfers, all of whom discovered something new while traveling with us.

CHECK HERE for more information, a detailed description and a day-to-day itinerary of our KwaZulu-Natal Surf Trips.

We’re looking forward to our next Surf Trip to Mozambique, from 30 July to 13 August !!! For more information send an email to: info@unravelsurftravel.com

Garden Route Surf Trip #26

After a very busy start to the season, with two big groups on Surf Trip 24 & Surf Trip 25, things slowed down a bit toward the tail end of summer. A smaller group was on the cards for Surf Trip No.26 at the end of February and into March. And it was a welcome change !!! Bigger groups are busy and super fun, but smaller groups allow for tighter twists and turns, fitting into spaces that normally wouldn’t allow for groups at all…
