If you make the drop relax and wait for the wave to pitch and barrel.
Locals have been known slash tyres but if you wait your turn and dont ass your waves you will gain respect and more waves

Not top 30 - I have to agree with anonymous, this is not a top 30 wave. Not by a long shot. I grew-up in EL and surfed yellows tons. Yeah, it’s a nice wave but can’t be compared to a world class wave like j-bay, Puerto Escondido, Hossegor, Barra, Pipe, etc, etc. Even if you surf it on your own it’s still not a world-class wave. Remember, it’s the quality of the wave that counts not the atmosphere.

Top 30 blah...blahh... blahhh - There seem to be more top 30 waves in the world in South Africa than top 40 songs in the music industry.
