Haha - yeah man this place has to have the highest surfer to stolen car ratio in the world. Those little buggers at the chapel are quick too but seriously umzumbe cooks on the right day and if its too small just surf the reform left on the inside it occasionaly cooks

don't forget sharks bay around the stiebel rocks - When the east is blowing and you are prepared to brave the sharks you get awesome lefts around MAY/JUNE, oh, and watch the fishermen who sometimes think they have landed the big one, buts its actually your ankle...
