WELCOME TO THE ONLY ORGANISATION OF ITS KIND IN THE WORLDDownload surf report
The KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board Maritime Centre of Excellence (KZNSB) is mandated to be a global leader in bather protection against shark while minimising environmental impact, thus promoting tourism. The KwaZulu-Natal coastline is the only coastline with 37 beaches equipped with bather safety gear owned and maintained by the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board Maritime Centre of Excellence in South Africa.
The KZNSB also conducts research into the biology of sharks and other animals caught in shark safety gear. Tourists and scholars are educated with dynamic audio-visual shows and shark dissections. In-depth research, that has already produced vital insight, is conducted into shark behaviour, feeding and breeding.
The public can enjoy early boat trips out to sea to observe staff at work. Here one will witness the checking of shark safety gear as well as stand an excellent chance of spotting a variety of marine life.
Kindly be advised that, the KZN Sharks Board museum is currently not accesible until further notice, due to renovations taking place in the museum.
Please also be advised that, the surf reports uploaded are of beach reports received from staff available currently. Some staff members are currently on strike therefore some bathing areas will not have surf reports.
