Welcome to the 5th of 6 perfect, long Lefthand pointbreaks on Namibia's mid coast. All these breaks are on diamond mining private property, so access is impossible. Lucky for us we have family that work here..sorry okes.. Good luck
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.
Perfect. Unspoiled. One of the best waves i have ever surfed.

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....

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.
