Which breaks to go to and what hazards there are!PLEASE HELP DONT WANNA GET THERE AND NOT BE ABLE TO SURF........Just a beginner.....THANKS

Thanks for the advice, Scorchio - It was indeed fairly flat the day I went to J-Bay, but I did rent a board at Rip Curl at caught a few tiny waves alongside a handful of other surfers at either The Point or Tubes, not sure which it was. Oh well. Had fun anyway. And you're also right about J-Bay being a crappy town. Not what I had imagined.
