Park your car in the parking lot , make sure someone is there because you get quite a few robberies"
Surf it without doubting yourself , otherwise you will come short and go for a ride over the falls.
Gets exceptionally good when it's on a shorebreak that's about 2-4 ft.

The next step - Once you 're able to handle Big Bay, you' re off to Derdes. Pritty fun beach break that gets hollow but not often. Long lefts with big faced rights. It do get crowded and judging from my experience, it's best with now wind or a light offshore, so you'll have to get their very early to beat the wind and the crowds. It also cant handle a very big swell.

Nice views - Good spot if the rest is all flat. Pretty gnarly take offs and most probably will be crowded. Nice view of Table Mountain and Roben Island!
