Atmosphere

I really liked this spot with half the crowd of the durban piers and a whole lot punchier waves to boot. If your really keen head down to the CAVE down the road for sum heavy sheet.

Ansteys Rocks! - Avoid on Xmas and New year's Day because of discomfort of huge crowds but otherwise, day in and day out, this is one of the best spots on the planet! I know - I live about 100 metres from this surfing spot.
