Easy to find, drive from Capetown up to Vredenburg or around there and then to Paternoster. Its the rocky outcrop on the right side of town. Just look on a map.

Classic spot when on. Needs a medium to big clean WSW swell pushing in to turn on properly, 5-8foot and light offshore. Paddle in from the beach cause its a mission from the rocks when big. Pretty gnarley and heavy wave when on with some good barrels. Rights and lefts, though the lefts work better on SW.
The beachbreak and shorey also gets good. Come in the mornings when theres less wind and in winter and youll be garaunteed something.
Loads of other kiff spots around. Currents can be nasty when its big.
