The spot is located between Gordon’s Bay and Rooiels. It only breaks a couple of times a year and requires a huge SW swell. You can see the wave down below you from the road. It is a very powerful wave and you would not want to straighten out. Getting back out of the water is a hassle. Watch out for the sharks.

Park your car next to the road and walk down the very steep mountainside. Jump off the rocks. Getting in down the point is easier. Use an old board as you will damage your equipment.
I've only ever seen two other people surf this. It scares people. It looks scary. You can see these huge swells break and roll down the point with an occasional spit. It definitely barrels. Have a good look at the photo – it looks perfect yet nobody ever paddles out. Excepts for a few hard core crew. Are you brave enough?!

naming a break - I grew up surfing Buffalo Bay, close to Knysna, which has about 15 or so surf breaks in the area, from River Mouth, Fish Boma, Corners, Wild Side, Bert Rock, Opies, Opies Shorebreak, Point, Reef Right, Reef Left, Rock, Beachbreak, Bowl, Murphys, Yonders, Whales, etc, etc. Over the years the names of some of these spots changed, especially the grommets changing the names. Other names were created like Made-a-by changed to Bert Rock as a boogie friend of ours bunny-hopped over an outcrop of rocks on his booieboard, he took off on an 8 footer and didn't notice the rock outcrop until the last split second, we all saw it and gave him the honours of naming that specific part of the beach after him. Why am i saying this? Names of spots change, and no one can honsetly be sure who surfed it first, it's a pride thing. However, first to surf gets to name the spot is defintely good way to name a spot, because in today's world there are hardly any unsurfed spots and require an adventurer to brave a new hardcore spot.Rad discovery this Secrets spot, but isn't every new discovery known as Secrets until it no longer is a secret? That's what we called a new spot, Secrets, until it was officially called something else. I know a few spots in the Knysna area only a few of us have dared to surf, between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, notice no spots down that way on any surf guide, but yes there are waves that way. Seek and you shall find!
