Watch for it to break on the other side of the rocks, that spot is usually empty and just as good. (left side)
Fun waves, cool people. Get it early morning before the wind's on it.
Big graffiti on the wall says locals only, but everyone I met there was very cool. Except for this one prick, but he seemed like the exception. All ages, and everyone seems to be having a great time. Lots of kids, but everyone's really respectful, didn't see anyone dropping in, on a good wave everyone hoots for you.
One of the funnest little waves I had in Cape Town, convenient too. When the tide rises, you can often score some great rights just on the other side of the rocks, where it's usually empty.
