 Additional Information

very fical..but when breaks...very heavy but epic..kinda like maccaroni..but longer.....a mission and you gotta know when how and have swell...and medication..no running water or power on land..the country is wrecked...and thats by african standards

FB's is a very consistent wave but hard to get to, basically you need a boat and good local knowledge of winds, tides, and swell direction to get it on and moreover you really need to know when you should go and even moreso when you shouldn't ... coming back into howling head winds is a friggin nightmare!

Atmosphere

intense wave... very fast, but very fickle, as it needs prefect conditions. It turns on and off very quickly, as the tidal range is big and the wind effects it. The wind is like clockwork in this area. Every afternoon it picks up from 2pm from the SE, so you need to time it that you get there with a high tide in the afternoon. We had it perfect, with spring high at 4pm and low at about 11-ish, which is perfect time for Jellie-babies, which gets really good on a larger swell on spring low. You need good local knowledge.

Heavy take off which then rifles off down the line like a runnaway freight train, make sure you got a few surfs under your belt before surfing here once it hits the 4ft + mark otherwise you could get hurt. I also seriously advise taking a first aid kit on board with you as it breaks over shallow reef and reef gashes are not uncommon.

General

when it breaks its good...when that is...trying to get right wind right tide and swell..hmmmm don't let anybody bullshit you you gotta have luck..one other kak surfspot near by jellybabies..names says it all soft and mushy

I disagree, you don't need luck you need knowledge and a good logistic .. I see crew heading out there when I'm heading for the hills .. they don't know what they're doing and thats why they miss out. Like I said earlier it's all about winds, tides, and swell direction, once you got it wired it's like reading a book! Anyway if anyone wants any advice feel free to give me a yell, I live here! ... lamoucate

ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED - Don't ask questions! Shhhh!
You'll spoil it for yourself.. If you want comfort and zero risk then go somewhere with better parking. Don't come here if surfing is all you want cos the waves can get pretty lame - Ive have made a few attempts to score waves further south and get skunked by sandstorms and wind every time. Woke up buried in sand in me own tent once- thought my gear had been nicked! Crikey!
