A heavy beast of a wave, one of Capetowns heaviest for sure. Can be compared to waves like Shark island and shipsterns and gets super shallow and heavy on lower tides, which is asking for a hiding, not for the faint hearted. The wave folds over a shallow reef section, the lip is often enough to take your head off..
Crazy, surfed by a few. Easier tackled by bodyboarders.
