The spot has two breaks a left and a right, both on sand banks. Although the sand banks move around from year to year the right is the better wave working on mid to high tide.
Very peaceful and welcoming.... only the sharks to watch for here. As everywhere in South Africa, be nice to the locals, as good info won't just help you find good breaks, it might just save your life.
A fickle spot which is great when it works
