Every customer comes back from their adventure saying that it wouldn’t have been the same without them;

Chris Bond
Chris has been involved in Ticket to Ride South Africa since the very first trip in 2005 and as a result, his knowledge of the trips is priceless. Chris represented the Western Province competing on the South African circuit and now is one of South Africas best coaches being involved in the coaching team for the South African Juniors. Chris’s attention to detail when it comes to coaching is unparrelelled. You’ll also spot him getting barrelled in Kalk Bay pits on his day off… a wave not for the faint hearted.

Luke Geldenhuys
Growing up in Cape Town, Luke got into surfing at quite a young age but took a bit of a break as rugby took up most of his time. Now he’s like a frothing grom and spends every second he can in the water. He also loves to train and beach fitness sessions are the norm.
