THe pier is sick wave to get barrel and to get hurt on a big day. The wave can get fast and powerfull but fun. The pipe is for expierence surfers, not a easy wave to ride and can get heavy. The car parking has change and is near the beach now. Soo you can park your fancy car, its safe. People when the wind blows NE you surf the inside, that is some expierence to have, amazing wave but breaks some times, not all the time. If the wave not good you take a walk down the beach and go to Klei Klip Klofie, that is a realy a SHARK ISLAND wave, it does not work on SW but any other wind. If the swell is too big to surf, you ask any one where is pelican island, the wave on the sand bar out there gets realy sick, and if thats not enough, there is always a wave to surf at south pier, just ask any one.

Atmosphere

The atmosphere is a real surfing feeling, it feels like you belong here. Its a true surfer fealing.You will find that everyone who surfs there is not for image but for the wave and they are all true surfers. Its a realy peace between bodyboarders and surfers out there. If you drop in some one wave, not going to get beaten up , they are just going to laugh about it and smile. Its lot like a island atmosphere, everything is green.
