Atmosphere

looong slow breaking but powerful lefthand pointbreak that can handle alot of swell. Takes a long drive over dunes from Affenrucken and a pretty long walk. No one around. Beautiful scenery with the namib desert infront of you.

Fake pics - Had a look at the pictures and thought I had to expose this guy. But then I saw somebody did already. There is no grass on the Namibian coast, and car registrations are reversed, and if there are spots in the south of Namibia you will never get there with a sedan vehicle. Wannasurf should verify spots somehow....

jono the fraud - to all you out there this guy is one big bullshiter...was bust posting pics which he said were in the middle of Nam but were infact from the eastern cape just reversed....spots in the desert "far from any where"with a fucking stream...get real pal...even this pic is a joke...grass in the desert.....was up there for years....no fucking way...

Stoked - Thanks Jono for adding these awesome spots. Got a 4x4, gonna be working in those areas as a diamond-diver, so in all likelihood me and a few buddies will have access to them. I'm amping already!

To those knobs giving him kak about putting the spots up, stick to town buddies, dont want your type ruining the search vibe.
