My Danish friend, Sanne, slept over and our morning started at 06:30.

Last week we left the adventure paradise and enchanted gardens of Hogsback for something a little more coastal – South Africa’s very own surf heaven, Jeffrey’s Bay. This little Afrikaans fishing town was discovered in the 60’s for its unbelievably perfect waves and since then the population has grown ten-fold as surfers came to settle down with their families.
