 Additional Information

Welcome to the first of 6 long lefthand point breaks along Namibia's South-mid coast. Rarely surfed by anyone they are the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for anyone who can get to them. Problem is theyre on private diamond mining property so access is denied to all. Lucky for us we have family who work here (sorry okes)..

Atmosphere

To get to it needs a long drive with 4by4 through dunes and a walk. Spencer and this whole part of coast can be pretty sharky, dont know. Mercury island sits opposite the bay with lots of seals. Noone around. Longest lefthand break I have ever surfed. Gets longer than J-Bay.

Spencer shorebreak - Spencer bay has an awsome and powerful shorey further up the beach. Look closely on the GPS map, there are two pointbreaks here and a lefthand reefbreak which works on bigger swell.

- One of the safest spots in the area with less hassle from currents, although sharks are a whole new story.. but thats Namibia brother..
