So who is Deon Bosman?

Born in 1960 and realized soon that my life would revolve around the ocean and water sports.

My dad was an oil merchant and we travelled countrywide until we settled in Durban. This is where I got my first surfboard from the legendary Graham Hynes and Spider Murphy, who mentored me to achieve captaincy in the 1987 Springbok Surfing Team. We went on to tour France, Spain and Portugal during the then ‘apartheid era’.

I bought my first surf shop after joining Lorraine Hynes, wife of the great Graham Hynes, in Brickhill Road, Durban. Since then I have dedicated my life to growing and developing other in the world of water sports, predominantly through surfing and bodyboarding.

I have continued to travel globally to experience the many different surf breaks, which enables me to share that knowledge with other enthusiasts.

Stand up paddling (SUP) is a more recent water sport, which has evolved from the fishing and surfing disciplines. This has become one of my favourite pastimes and a super-fun exercise routine for me.

I have recently also taken to kiteboarding. With its high impact and adrenaline rush, it fits right into my stable of water sports.

This is my lifelong passion and I take great pleasure in helping enthusiasts to get their most of these amazing water sports!
