In this fishing village, tucked around from the Sentinel, waves can be found off the harbour wall and down the beach. However, the swell window is small and the spots need a big swell to push into Hout Bay. The waves are generally short, small and of poor quality, although on a huge SW swell and NW winds, the harbour wall has been known to get good.
Not always good here and there are loads of other spots close by. This is close to where you go from if you wanna get to her majesty Dungeons. Can get prett good under big swell. Pretty town with lots of 'bergies'.
Enjoy it when its on! When its not, eat yourself dik on seafood at the many lekker restaurants.
