 Additional Information

Unknown but pretty good wave when theres bigger swell hitting false bay and south cape. Good solid wave though need big sweel to get power. It breaks with good form for a while but eventually closes out on the rocky beach. Good for bodyboarding cause you can ride it right to the end. Always short rides but gets intense and hollow.

Atmosphere

Strange wave. The bigger the better cause with smaller size means you gotta struggle to keep on it till the shorey. Lots of kelp aswell.
