Here at Ticket to Ride, we have been directly involved in training surf instructors for the past 15 years. Some of our trainers have been there since the very beginning. As well as providing courses and training for intermediate and advanced surfers, Ticket to Ride pioneered and have a proven track record of training novice surfers all the way up to instructor level in just 10 weeks.

Surf instructor courses in South Africa combine adventure travel with the chance to put something back into the local community.

ISA Surf Instructor Courses: We operate and wholly recommend ISA surf instructor courses. The ISA surf instructor qualification is the most widely recognised and full global surf instructor award.

Working as a surf instructor:

Ticket to Ride is one of the main employers of surf instructors worldwide. So whether training with us and then becoming part of the Ticket to Ride team is your goal, or training with us in order to then be recommended by the best, look no further than a surf instructor course with Ticket to Ride.
