Surf’s Up Surf School was founded by Andries Matthysen in 2013 and has been based permanently at Diaz Beach since December 2015.

Surf’s Up Surf School is Mossel Bay’s only surf school with permanent headquarters at Diaz Beach and is open for surf lessons 7 days a week.

Andries Matthysen is a life-long surfer and qualified Surf Coach with a lifetime of ocean and surfing experience. He worked in the corporate world until he realized that real happiness only comes when we follow our dreams. That’s when he decided to open his own Surf School and share his passion with anyone keen to learn surfing!

Andries started Surf’s Up Surf School with the mission of introducing both adults and children to surfing, in a safe environment, through affordable and quality surfing experiences motivated first and foremost by his passion for surfing, the ocean and life.
