Very long lefthand pointbreak, that works and looks simular to Cape cross. Perfect and with less seals around. I dont think it is factory point, it is further north from there.
**Update 9/11/08: This is a tremendous point. The wave peels perfectly over a soft, flat reef covered with a perfect bank of sand. The beach here faces NNW, so the constant South wind is offshore/cross-shore.
There are not that many seals around probably because this is probably the best shark fishing spots in all of Namibia. Shark mating season is busiest in summer (Oct-April) and fortunately nearly empty during the swell season of winter (May - Sept). Only a few *big* bronzies around in winter ;) Go with a crew, and you should be ok.
Never seen anyone else surf here but if you know of the name please feel free to add it in.
**Update 9/11/08: We did not surf it. We scoped it at sun-down, and headed home. Definitely worth a look anytimg you're in the Cape Cross region.
Loooooooong and slow breaking wave. No one around.
**Update 9/11/08: On a good West swell, you can bet this place breaks fast and hollow.
