Meet your expert

Our latest UK import James is an expert on the French way of life. Punchy beach breaks, French cuisine or snowboarding in the Alpes - Monsieur Colston knows it all. James is your man if you are after a surf trip somewhere in Europe, the Maldives or Sri Lanka. He loves barrels, especially when they break fast, hollow and over sand. Mundaka anyone?!

Be Aware

Visiting a country on another continent is a thrilling adventure, but make sure you’ll prepare yourself for the trip and familiarize yourself with the area. South Africa is a land of beauty and is home to some of the greatest surf spots in the world, but there are some bumps in the road you might encounter while you are there. It’s a place of wonderous and sometimes tricky-to-get-to surf spots. It is important to ensure you have key local knowledge and that is why you can rest assured that when you book with LUEX, your every need, want and everything in between is catered for.

5 Reasons to choose an South African Holiday Trip

01

Expect authentic South African hospitality

South Africans are the friendliest people in the world. It is almost standard custom to greet strangers with a “Howsit, Sawubona, hello,” or with a colloquialism from one of the 11 official languages. It’s a country as diverse as the surf options and almost everyone wants to show you why South Africa is the place to be. Getting lost is often a new way to find adventure as around every corner something or someone different is waiting to show you something new about their land.

02

Be prepared for an assault on your taste buds

Ever heard of the “Bunny chow” or what about the “Gatsby?” Two dishes originating from South Africa that are tasty and low cost which are as much of the history of the country as the very coastlines themselves. A journey to any city in South Africa will see you leaving with a full heart from all the surf and stories told by locals AND a full belly from the incredible and passionately delicious food on offer.

03

Waves, Waves, Waves await you in South Africa

One of the only times you will hear South Africans arguing about surf is when it comes to which city has the best surf in the country. Be it the world-beating JBay or the historically cherished Durban beachfront, or even the cold but photo perfect sets which smash Cape Town’s many crystal-clear coastlines, surf in South Africa is a wonderfully difficult decision making conversation to have. Our suggestion: Surf them all.

04

Get yourself some Wildlife adventure in South Africa

Surfing may be the primary reason you head to South Africa, but consider popping off for a moment into one of the many places around South Africa which house animals in reserves or parks. In South Africa a safari is called a game drive, and it is just that, a drive around a protected area in search of game, or wild animals. South Africa is home to the big five and it is your duty as a surfer in South Africa to feed your soul as you search for all 5. With hundreds of beautiful birds and rare areas of protected flowers such as the Cape wildflowers section, you will see that everything in the water and out of it in SA is beautiful.

05

South Africa is a surfing paradise for all budgets

Relatively speaking, South Africa is a cheap holiday. The Rand is the country’s currency and plays into most international currency’s favour. If you are in search of bang for buck then South Africa is a place to look at. You can get massive meals, incredible accommodation options and access to the best beaches in the world for a small amount of money. South Africans are also generous in delivery, so when you book in an area near a restaurant or pub, expect more than the very basic.
