 Additional Information

A rocky shelf just south of Lambert's Bay produces a fun, sometimes classic 2-5 foot wave, as long as conditions are glassy or a NE berg wind is blowing. So named after a nearby farmer called, you guessed it, Mr Burger, a legend in the area.

Dunno what Prokamzi's problem is... - I suspect he's never been to Cape Town. Farmer Burger's is a well-known stop-off on the way to Elands Bay. And yes, Farmer Burger the man is legendary for his benevolence towards surfers crossing his property to get to the wave.

You are out-of-control Jono, you IDIOT! - You will assuredly reap whatever you sow; whilst living on earth Bru. There are NO farmers on the desert-like West S.African coast. As a matter of fact, Farmer Boys Burgers is a fast-food restaurant on the corner of La Palma Av. + Richfield St., Anaheim, CALI. I used to take lunch-breaks there, when I used to work nearby. You, however, will likely end up 'eating your lunch' at your imaginary Mr.Burger's private 'funny-farm' Jono!! Or 'closish' to it!!!
