 Additional Information

Tucked away around a corner, this is the Bruces of the southern Cape. It's an awesome barrel, but it only breaks when a solid southeasterly swell pushes around the corner and on to the rocks, in similar fashion to Vlees. Lots of sharks in the area. When its on its awsome, one of the longest waves in SA for sure but it only works a few times a year, mosly in winter although has been known to surprise you often.

kanon - the position of kanon is incorrect. the true position is on the point southwest of vleesbaai, just before the mouth of the gouritz river. vlees bay(flesh bay) seldom works on the prevailing west/southwest swell and needs a deep cyclone to push southerly swell into the bay. (i'm a longtime east coast surfer having spent many years as a surveyor on this coast.
