While driving up(northwards) the "Strandstreet" in Swakopmund, on your left side there will be an old sewage pipe stading out of the grass. Just hop in there !!! There is an extra parking place for the spot.

Week-end crowdFew surfers
On a big day ... take the left side of the wave .
On a messy day ... take the right.
The waves are consistent ... it is a very safe place and from November - April one could see a few "Crayfish-divers" paddling around in the front like maniacs. If there is a day with nice waves there will be about 6 people in and we would chat while waiting for the set.
Its a great spot to start surfing and to practise your "floaters".
