Jack Ring

23 March - 06 April 2024

Meet your host

Nearly 5 years ago I left my home in Ireland and moved to Canada thinking I’d be back home in 6 months. Fast forward to now I’m still moving. After Canada I moved to Hawaii in May 2021, almost 2 years ago, with very little money in my back pocket. Ended up booking into a hostel for a week and got lucky when they offered me a job because at the end of the week I would have had nowhere to go.

I’ve since spent the last 2 years of my life working and living in different hostels around the world. I’ve had countless tour groups come through my hostels over the 2 years and always thought it would be cool to do one myself, but do one my way: Get people to try new things that they normally wouldn’t, see some really beautiful places, and also get the blood pumping a little.

Then when I came to the Surf lodge in South Africa, I went surfing, wakeboarding, they brought me to a cool cliff jumping spot, zip lining, hiking, all that good stuff. After some talking to Emily she told me they mostly host tour groups and asked me if that was something I would ever consider.

My immediate thought was no. Not yet, maybe someday in the future when I’m done moving around. Then I asked my mom and she laughed and she said you’ve been bringing backpackers surfing, cliff jumping, hiking for the past 2 years only now this would just be you putting yourself out there.

When I put down the phone I said f*** it let’s do it! I started working with the lodge putting together a package and now here we are. I’m very excited to share it with everyone! I want the base of this trip to be a surf camp for all levels, we’ll surf every morning and in the afternoon there’ll be some fun activities from hiking to bungee jumping depending on what you’re into.

The lodge has its own pool, table tennis and is right next to beach so no matter what you’re feeling you’ll always have options. So if you’re feeling like trying something new or just want an adventure, this is it!
