but the photo was real..... - I totally agree with you guys. The only day I have seen it really crank was when the photo was taken last year. However there was such an awesome swell in the False Bay that anywhere and everywhere that day had almost perfect waves!

what?!!! a regional classic? - please this spot never works. i think i know of maybe this one time it was surfable but that is still urban legend. there is pretty much no such thing as a south easterly swell in cape town
