 Additional Information

Not as amazing as it used to be since the storms of 2006, Still a very high performance wave, picks up large swell, but now it is much faster and sections a lot. The wave can still have you completely barreled, much more exciting than Durban Town on a good South West Swell.

Atmosphere
