Very underrated - Evryone always drives right past to the Steenes,but I promise you, horsetrails rights are way better the any wave at Derde steen,which is great,because it keeps the crowds away. Reminds me of the Durban beachies,just uncrowded and cold,surf there alone all the time!

horsetrails - yeah this spot is fun, punchy little beachies and works even when the swell is small. minimal crowds and the vibe is good
