Tucked away in the corner near Cape Town harbour, The Wedge is the first surf spot on the stretch of beach that runs all the way to Blouberg. You have to park in the harbour and clamber over concrete dolloses to access this spot. The swell does weird and wonderful things here. As it refracts round the harbour wall, it bounces and travels sideways to join another swell in a sharp triangular peak that can be very hollow at times. However, the takeoff is often the best part of the wave, because it devotes most of its energy to the initial barrel. Best in any East wind. Needs a huge general swell to filter all the way around to the Wedge.
Awsome when big. Usually find a wave here.
