I'm Tellin' you Collin! - I Have to agree with Psh! 5 stars?....? ..no way! Maybe if you've never surfed anywhere elce.

By Pete , 26-11-2005

SA Waves overated (with stars) - Just another spot that gets 5 stars and "totally epic in the top 30". Comments like "really good on it's day" - jeez, the same could be said for just about anywhere. It's time you SA crew got out and about a bit more. 5 stars - bullshit!!

By yehaaa controversy , 09-11-2005

what the ??? - first off are we all talking about the same place gremmies has never in its life been world class. its a fun wave at most I worked the beaches there for many years and was down there most days so to say it is infested with bull sharks well quite frankley its bull. definitly a place for a bit of fun but give it a good size swell and thats game over. oh and the guy that drowned did so in four foot.
