Scarborough actually has three spots, the point break at the south of the bay, the reaf break in the middle and another reef to the right (north). As well as this it has a sandbar at the base of the point that, when working, is a very fun right. The good news is a strong rip along the rocks on the southern side.
Very friendly, unless crowded. this is not a hard-core technical wave, more of a fun place to hang out.
Lots of Kelp in the water will keep you alert to things bumping into your feet!!
Fun place to surf, somewhat away from the crowds of Cape-Town.

digital surf reports - Stay away with your digital surf reports. Scarborough locals don't get enough cooking days to warrant publicising the surf here, for all to raid.
