 Additional Information

Unknown to most but this place seriously cranks, especially in winter. Its a powerful sandbar on the one side (closes out alot), the shorey is next to it between it and the rocks. This is where the wave breaks straight onto the shallow beach away from sandbar. Awsome big barrels. Often closes out but intense.

Vredenburger - Are you sure about the names for all these spots just west of Vredenburg, or for this part of the Weskus for that matter??
