Befriend a local to take you there as a special guest. Otherwise you won't find it. When a raging 15-20' storm swell is pummelling the Cape peninsula just before or after a cold front has passed, Cape Town surfers say "Let's go to Heaven".

 Additional Information

This small rock bottomed reef/point will be in the 6'+ range. A kelpy foamy cauldron of Atlantic juice, Heaven throws up a thick-lipped wall for about 80 metres, with a stomach-churning bowl section halfway down. Not for the faint hearted. Best in glassy conditions or light NE berg winds. Can't handle strong wind, but handles light Westerly, or even SW or S, as long as it's light.

You need to stop Jono. - 'Playing God' in SW Africa won't gaurantee you a spot in God's Biblical heaven, it won't even get you into the lineup in your fake 'heaven' spot here, because YOU WILL BE GOING STRAIGHT TO LUCIFER'S HELL for your wrong-doings here; if YOU don't STOP posting ALL these LIES. Come clean & post your REAL email BAD Bru.
