About the operator
About a year ago the founder of J-Bay Surftrips, Robin van der Linde, came on a surf safari to Jeffreys Bay. It was immediately obvious how this little town was booming, especially how the balance between localism and authenticity in tourism was maintained. This was obviously the perfect place for an unforgettable surfing holiday! But, although J-Bay holds great interest for surfers from the world over, some even dream of coming here while still at school, nothing substantial was offered them!!!
Robin decided to make his permanent home Jeffreys Bay. Over some time he connected with legends and big names in the local surfing industry, amongst them Etienne Venter. Etienne is the owner of the “Jeffreys Bay Surf School”, selector of the National Springbok Surf Team and contest director for the S.A. Junior Series. If anyone knows anything about surfing J-Bay, it would be Etienne, well known and respected by all in Jeffreys Bay.
The balanced mix of Robin’s organisational skills with Etienne’s surf experience and intimate knowledge of the area, people and waves, presented the perfect foundation for J-Bay Surftrips to be born. This will open new horizons for all those who’s dream it was to visit and surf Jeffreys Bay’s superior waves, or receive the very best surfing instructions available, whether novice, intermediate or experienced surfer, or just to soak in the J-Bay vibe…
