Well known spot close to Capetown. Powerful beachbreak at times with some shifting sandbanks. Best in winter swell. When this place is on itll be crowded then there are always the other steens (1st and 2nd)to choose from of just wait patiently and youll get something. At its best it gives chunky shorebreak style barrels and a descent ride.
Great spot when you get it good and its only you out.

Just wondering - how often does one spot sharks here? If you take a look at the 2nd photo with the body boarder on the yellow board on a decent size wave, look behind him in the background is that kelp or jaws?

all wrong - this place only works on low tide, maybe mid when bigger, ..as for the guy who lives 2 minutes away, ..there are no houses in 2 minute driving distance, maybe 5minutes from melkbos

Ahoy - To the dude tuning its not derdes - dude ... I surf this spot almost every other day of my life as I live less than 2 minutes drive from it ... that is most certainly derdesAnd to the tide dude ... yea ... you're right .. mid tide is better but some years is has cooked on the dead high and others it has cooked on dead low ... last year it was best on mid pushing - so he's not entirely wrong?
