 Additional Information

A lefthand point break. Needs high tides, a clean 4-8' groundswell and light glassy variable winds, or a NE berg wind offshore. Deep water off the rocks make it slightly scary, but it gets classic. Some distance north of Saldanha Bay. It's the same shape as the Kom. The wedge focuses on the impact zone, and pitches steeply. You have to paddle hard into it. Breaks in front of a boulder, or next to it. If you make the drop, you whizz down a rearing wall. It's almost like a miniature Outer Kom. However, it's usually a bit out of control when the swell is more than 5'. It's powerful for its size. Good in small swell and glassy berg breezes. Doesn't like wind. Faster and more powerful than Elands Bay, but more fickle.
