The next step - Once you 're able to handle Big Bay, you' re off to Derdes. Pritty fun beach break that gets hollow but not often. Long lefts with big faced rights. It do get crowded and judging from my experience, it's best with now wind or a light offshore, so you'll have to get their very early to beat the wind and the crowds. It also cant handle a very big swell.

actually - its the best wave, with tube wave in the area

Nice views - Good spot if the rest is all flat. Pretty gnarly take offs and most probably will be crowded. Nice view of Table Mountain and Roben Island!
