Nor East swell the go - so info is a bit wrong here. Salmon Bay is prob the one swell in Ballito that doesn't work on a south swell but it is pron also the only place that works on the frequent north east wind swells. if you catch on the rare occasion of solid north east (including cyclone swell) it can do an Indo imitation left break from right back behind the pools. but there are definitely a few meaty sharks lurking here,
