🏝 Surfing & Yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️

Pumula Surf Camp

kzn south coast


The only local-run and owned surf camp in the area. We are a young local family, situated in the peaceful seaside village of Pumula (“ideal resting place” in isizulu), One hour drive south from Durban city on the south coast of KZN, South Africa.

Our homely Surf House which sleeps 12 is set on a large plot overlooking lush forests and is a short walk from the surf and miles of beautiful beaches. No roads to cross, just a short walk down the road, along the river. Come join our family and way of life, learn about the ocean, learn to surf or improve your surfing skills in the warm Indian ocean. Breathe and stretch out with yoga sessions to enrich your mind, body and soul, and gain knowledge of maintaining and preparing healthy meals from our organic fruit and vegetable garden. Take a SUP tour on one of our beautiful rivers, explore these stunning estuaries the natural, healthy, fun way.

We share the place with a pack of friendly dogs, a few cats, and 2 wild and free kids. In the area we have indigenous wildlife, such as vervet monkeys, porcupines, bush buck, tons of birds and much more. We are surrounded by stunning natural bush, and just a short stroll away from the beach.

We cater for the eco-conscious travellers and families, our vision is to try live an eco-lifestyle as nature intended, by learning to enjoy and live in harmony with the land and sea.

Enjoy Saturday night pizza nights, when you can order a fresh, homemade pizza that will be cooked to perfection in our outside, wood fired pizza oven.
Sometimes there may even be some cool, mellow live music vibes.

Pumula Surf Camp is very much a locals hangout and you will enjoy a few cold ones with the locals after a full day of surfing.

World-class surf camp. Justin, the owner, is a former pro who is so knowledgeable and can improve your surfing, no matter your level . The vibe at the house is great; pizzas, live music and a comfortable atmosphere. Good WiFi, clean and full-on value for money. The surf camp is not a business, it’s a way of life.

What a beautiful place to stay. Beautiful warm sea with great surf instruction. Love the large wooden deck overlooking forests & sunsets, lovely people, very comfortable accommodation. So much fun things to do when not surfing & delicious healthy food. Campfires on the beach with local musicians playing was my best memory.

Had an incredible stay at Pumula Surf Camp! The rooms were cozy and colorful and the food was amazing. Hayley, Justy and the girls welcomed me into their daily lives with music at a local joint, surf lessons, and an extra stop out at the Maisch surf factory. Thank you!! Will definitely be back to this beautiful part of the world.
