turn off the princess hwy and head to the greencape lighthouse via the signs. once you are on the dirt road heading towards the light house and you have water in sight (after disaster bay lookout). 1 km before the greencape lighthouse on the right, follow a little dirt trail through the heathland until you reach cliffs (track is a bit hidden). Then follow a path along the cliffs until you see the wave/reef below the cliffs (you will hear it if its working).

Most take offs are a free fall, its a typical slab to start off and then peels with a ledgy barrel. if you dont make the take off then you get punished on the reef as its very powerful and breaks on a foot of water when its big. best to surf at 3-4ft.
An amazing place to surf with cliff views and an array of sea life that passes by (whales, dolphins, sharks). definately a good weekend trip and if the conditions are not quite right then take the rods and get some fish. cheers!
Definately worth a look!
