Welcome to the 6th 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..
The most northernly of the 6 point breaks, it is more of a sand dune point that goes into deep water, although there are a few rocks. It looks like a point break setup but breaks like a shorey. Shallow, hollow, long waves that ends in a closeout section.
Brutal shorey when big and with no one around and no hospitals, caution is needed. First Aid kit essential. Last time we came up here we used all the painkillers for hangovers and then ran out when we really needed them for surfing accidents, especially at Elizabeth Bay. (Diamond Bay no. 2) Access is difficult. you have to 4x4 over sand dunes for a few hours. Bring all the necessary equipment with cause theres noone around for miles. 4 of us who surf these 6 breaks regularly. Beautiful scenery in the Namib desert.

jerk off - the only correct thing about this pic is the colour of the sand...As we all now the southerly wind pomps..and i mean pomps 350 days of the year in nam...which is from left to right in this pic...so how the fuck does he just happen on a offshore...1000k's from no where over sand dunes and it took two weeks to get there...can only be a doormat...jerk off
