Best in small swell and light land breezes. It offers a shifty peak. Generally a fat short wave since the storms 2 years ago, 2006, beach still recovering.
Much better waves available outside of this spot, look north or go to Durban Town center.
Look to the shore break 100m further up the beach for a fun wave if you bodyboard.

My Old Break - Nostalgia! This used to be my old local break back in the eighties when I used to surf it with Peter Wetteland, Jeff Preston, Rob Clark, Stephen Wickenden, Rob and John Matthews, Leon D. and many other names I now forget. Memories of great waves and good times. Are any of the old Bronze Beach crew still around?
