 Additional Information

First check out the spot to fully understand it!The left breaks fast and hollow and is often unmakable but when you make it you are a hero!The end section is rounder than a hula hoop and very fast.The wave also tricks sometimes into paddleing too far to the inside and often you will catch a few on the head!

- Outerpool is indeed a powerful wave. I am not a very well traveled surfer, only having surfed in Mossel Bay and the surrounding area, but what I can say, although I have surfed spots that are way more technical to ride, and have surfed bigger waves at spots that have a bigger capacity for size, the bottom section of Outerpool still trumps any of these spots in sheer power, and on a good 6-8ft day, it will swallow you, chew you up, and spit you out like a peace of bubblegum. I will surf this spot for as big as it can handle without breaking wide, but once it breaks wide, I steer clear of it, purely because at the end of the wave, past the bottom section, there is a shelf of rocks, and if you end up there and a set comes and slams you into them, you will be lucky to get out of there with all your limbs still attached. Forget the sharks, the wave will give you enough to worry about.

Hard to relax - Its a very hard place to enjoy your surfing because you are worried about what else is swimming out there.
No matter what. Too risky
I spoke to a local and said since he started surfing he's probably sighted about 100 whites in the water during that time

CORRECTION - There has been a shark attack at Inner Pool. Gideon Scheltema in the early 70's. At that time we only had 4 or 5 locals who surfed there regularly. I was lucky enough to be one of them. Still one of th ebest waves I have surfed anywhere. Ding-Dang, close to th eIsland was another favourite spot in those days.
