WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“Big thanks to Janek for looking after me in Ballito this past week. A great surf instructor that was happy to give me guidance where needed and let me learn on my own. He went out of his way to help me choose a great board to further my skills, picked me and dropped me off from our resort chose the best breaks for the day.

I was impressed with his attitude to youngsters I saw him teaching. Definitely recommend.”
