This is one of the only true point breaks on the Kwa-Zulu natal coast. With a high quality south swell it can be world class. On normal swells it is still very good and offers some protection from strong SW winds. When the wind is NE - don't bother. There are very few true locals but it is close enough to Durban and Amamzimtoti that it can get crowded on weekends.
BEWARE - petty theft from cars is a problem in the area and there have been soem cases of armed robbery and car-jackings. Don't go alone!
Oh yeah - there are no nets and it can be a bit sharky, especially during the sardine runs.
True point break can hold fairly large swell.
Usaullt empt during the week but can get busy during the weekend as it not too far from Durbs or the southern Hibiscous coast.

sharks - come'n ous,,, Green Point have shark, but not more than other good breaks. You have better chance being robbed there than Shark Food.
Anyway, greenPoint defenately are one of the best breaks in kzn... infact SOUTH AFRICA.
Enjoy the waves here!!

nothing like south coast - one of the few spots which, on its day, can be compared with the best. Tubes, jonnies, criminals. a classic "suid-kus" mix. keeps the spot relatively quiet.gotta love KZN.
