Very easy to find. Just look on the map, the wilderness is inbetween Sedgefield and Victoria Bay, in the Garden Route. Any South Afican knows where it is.

Lots of different peaks on the beach. A few by the rivermouth but i think the best are at the end of the beach next to the cliff where the highway passes. Always a pretty descent wave here. Can be tricky when big because of currents but no worries. I think the biggest worry is sharks, there are two rivermouths here on the beach and there have been attacks but technically you have more chance of being hit by lightning so.. Likes a smaller around 3-6 foot swell with no or little offshore wind, so mornings are best. This place is great in summer.
Beautiful beach, scenery and town. A few cool pubs with the view of the sea infront to get pissed at.
There are loads of other spots to check out along the garden route all driving distance when its not good here. One of the most beautiful and coolest little towns on earth!
