Easy just look on a map and go to Arniston, close to Bredarsdorp. Ask a local to show you around. The break is not on the regular swimming beach side of Arniston, but rather around the corner on the "wild side" exposed to the open ocean swell.

 Additional Information

A beautiful little white-washed fishing village with four spots in the area. Best in light W or NW winds and clean South swell.
This spot gets epic, but a sharkshield is a good idea and you can get mangeled on the rocks while entering and exiting. The wave in the pic is a wide set and it usually breaks a litte closer to the point on the left side with a steaming left with double up sections in the middle of the
ride. Best with a solid 8-10 foot swell and light ENE wind.
