When Koeelbay (caves) are too big and closing, then this break is excellent. Competitions are also held here.
Nice atmosphere.Friendly people
Long rides. But take long sleeve suit. Water isn't as cold as West caost or Cape Town though

ode to betties - had buddies with beach houses here when i lived in stellenbosch. had some of the best surfs there, just me and my mates. only problem with this place is that the surroundings are so beautiful that i used to spend too much time looking back at the mountains and not forward at the wave, smash.more of a winter place, summer better spent at caves or pringles.my buddies saw a 3-4m raggy in the surf there after i had left, but it didnt eat them.
