The spot that produces arguably the biggest waves in Africa. It has been known to get bigger than dungeons, reaching up to 80+ feet and should be left for the pro's. Just crazy...

Atmosphere

Apparently had'nt been surfed yet untill local durbanite Grant 'Twiggy' Baker charged it at 70+ feet, bringing the spot into the limelight. That wave was also arguably the biggest ever ridden anywhere. The wave itself has been compared to Cortez bank and is deffinately among the biggest and best big wave spots.
