Go in to Hermanus, ride through it, you will see a sign showing Bay view. Park their and walk through the bushes and find some huge waves. On big days you will have to paddle around from the town.

It has a huge wall. When surfing it, it looks like a close out but the wall doesn't break. Don't lie to much on the inside, the sets will kill you.
You will see the sets coming in and remember DONT GET CAUGHT. This wave has a lot of power.

Sharks !!!!!! - This place used to hold the record for largest Great White caught from land, +/-4.5m. There is a mini seal colony on the second reef that frequently gets reduced by Whites.
