 Additional Information

Good option if you want to get away from Cape Town for a couple of hours. The break is sometimes referred to as Schaap Eiland. It's a crunchy wedge-shaped wave that breaks over a flat slab of rock, then links with sand bars on the beach. More often than not, a freight train close-out is the result, but occasionally this wave is insanely hollow, and could host a Cape Town tourist bus inside it. Needs glassy or berg wind conditions.
