Getting there is the biggest problem,but once your there have a look around and look for the best take off point,Its long,fast and very hollow,so be sure on your experience before even thinking about going or you'll be wasting your time.When its flat everywhere else then that place is braking if you are desperate.
Really scary if you surfing alone,well known for shark fishing.Take a friend and make a surf trip out of it.Good luck
Recon it could be the best beach break in namibia if you learn the secret to the wave.
