- Rips / undertow
A left breaks towards the car park at Kleinmond, just before Hermanus, but it's fickle and the rip can make paddling tough, especially if the swell is oversized. The outgoing rip between the rocks and the wave is created by a deep channel, favourite area for fishermen. The rip kicks when the swell gets to about 5 or 6'. A light NW or N is best.
Gets very good here. Watch out for rips and sharks.
Gets long on the right swell.
