You wont find klipbaai. Can only surf high tide cause breaks too shallow, unsurfable otherwise.. Theres another spot closer in at the harbour which you will find. Rarely surfed cause noone ever makes the effort to drive this far up but deffinately worth it. This one we call 'blou balle' (blue balls) cause of the water temperature. Needs big swell, lacks power but gets perfect and long on good swell. Lots of fishing boats around so could be pretty sharky.
A really heavy wave when working. Picks up alot of swell. Usually breaks only a few meters from rock shelf. Freezing.. Wind always blows up here so mornings are best when there's light offshore.
Had some serious wipeouts here. Insane.

If you REALLY are a local, from a wealthy diamond mining family tree, then why exploit your homeland of surf spots J? - Were you thinking that your deliberate falsifications of this remote area helps to save it, whilst you simultaneously expose these spots just to experience some power-trip as a surfing 'Czar' of the region, can't you see how such behaviours could backfire on you? The December issue of "Surfing" magazine hit the newsstands last month, w/Ovahimba Pt. as it's cover story/pictorial layout, it's only a matter of time before your party's over anyway.

Blou balle - The spot on the GPS pic is not Klipbaai cause Im not telling where that is, the spot you see here is blou balle. If its not on just look around, theres a few different spots close by or check out the beachbreak.

- Live here and know of the two waves you mention here. The one has been surfed by a few. Im talking of Bob, Konnie and me back in 80's, a long wave nearby. The other is quite hidden and VERY dangerous. Nice to look at but you okes are mal in die kop for surfing here.
