A classic wave. It is heavy and powerful. Similar to Hossegor. The sand banks favour rights. Gets super hollow.
The beach is stunning, huge and very long. it doesn't get that crowded due to the hardcore walk in. has decent waves in the summer as well. the place is unspoilt.

aah memories - Started surfing here 25 years ago and surfed all alone on weekends. can't imagine how it must have been during the week! Can't tell you how many long barrels I got unseen by anyone on my old Glen Row boxy finned thruster. We could leave our bags and lunch on the beach and big dune and not see a dark gentleman all day. I remember the first time our bags got stolen was in 1989 and we chased the offender but he got away. Would not try that today without a gun! Anyway, I think about Dunes daily as I surf my pathetic waves in my new home in San Diego. Funny surfing alone or with just a hnadful of guys out, for all those years we never once thought about sharks. Had an altercation one day with Davie Stolk, stupid thing was we were the only 2 out in pumping 6 foot waves. Saw him in Reunion Island a few years ago. Someone get barreled for me please cause it is not happening here in S.D.

one of the best beachies - go to dunes if outer kom is just not big enough.then make sure you put on booties,a hoodie,and then start heading down the beach towards where you just came from,kom.since the beach makes a bay, find a good angle on the wind,which should ofcourse be south east,and a good channel.paddle out.wait.let the first one go by and then go.if you don't remember at that point what is written here,then you haven't read this

Narly - I bodyboarded there a couple years back! It is an awesome awesome wave! As a bodyboarder who is always looking for a killer wave with power for huge airs and fat tubes it is the perfect spot. I only surfed it a couple times and was always very powerful and unforgiving! Worth the walk!
