Oranjemund is in the very south of Namibia, at the mouth of the Orange River. This spot is at the mouth itself, and there is only one road going to it, easy to find. It's wedged in between the river and a forbidden diamond mining area.

 Additional Information

Atmosphere

This is a pretty unique spot. As far as i know i'm the only person ever to surf it! Because of the hectic diamond mining in this area, the whole coast is closed to the public. You need a huge number of permits to get into this little town, which is filled with dirty miners! I've surfed it about a dozen times, and it has some good potential. Went in today and it was great with an offshore. But Easterly winds are quite rare.

General

It's often quite a nice beach break, which changes a lot because of the river mouth. Water is pretty cold, but you definately won't find any crowds!

Oranjemund mouth - cool spot went to visit friends in Oranjemund and surf just off the mouth, can have a good reak on its day with good surf. Can be real cold out there and the rips can be real strong need to watch out for them big time. If you can get a permit its a cool place to go
