Okay Sp0t. - Scottiez can get good, but when its not working, then its bad. On some day you can ride all the way from the Point, until near the cutty-sark. If the locals are annoying you, dont be sheep and look for your own lil'spot near by and you can almost be sure to have some sic wave, from heavy shoreys to gnarley reefs.

Surfing=dead? - is it just me or has sufing died on the south coast?!?
if this same piece of coastline was somewhere in Australia we would have produced a mick fanning by now...promising surfers emerge and just fade on this coast...bascially you have to move to Durban to experience competative Surfing. C'mon boys lets get on our boards stop bickering about local spots and SURF
