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.

- I'm kinda agreeing with both of u (Homeless & anon).It gets really good!!so fun, so much speed...but not that good!And the old bally locals really suck..alot-they can hardly ride a wave or do anything on them yet they still hassle u (esp. if ur a booger like me)

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.
