1996 Session - I surfed Crossways a few tmes in the mid to late 90's. I remember one session that really stands out. It was in 1996 and winter. I drove down to Ansteys and there was an 8-10 ft ground swell pumping with a soft offshore breeze and it was low tide. There was no one ut at Ansteys and I do not think that it would of been possible to paddle out. We drove to Crossways and it was just absolute perfection. 200 metre rides but a tough paddle.

crossways untruths - I know a handful of bluff surfers who could claim to have surfed crossways as much as myself ( bar the last 3 years ) and I feel I must correct some statements regarding the wave to prevent disappointment. Nearby Ansteys and Cave Rock are undoubtably finer surfing breaks and to award crossways 4 stars is entirely misleading. Often, even with a substantial groundswell the wave barely exists at high tide and can only really be regarded as good over the full low. Sympathy to whoever sent in the original description as it certainly has its days but I feel the break wouldnt warrant a major search when there are better, more accessible breaks in the area. The break does not have shark nets and I have witnessed medium to large zambezi, dusky and hammerhead sharks in the lineup over a period of 15 years. If this is not a deterrant please respect the locals who choose this spot to avoid the aggressive ratpacks of durbans beaches.
