- Rips / undertow
A fun wedgy right-hander breaks into a rip channel along some rocks to the left of this sleepy little Afrikaans holiday village. Also has lefts. A variable peak. It's best in light northwesterly conditions and a 3-5' swell. There is also a nearby beach break, which is comparable to Sandy Bay. It can get excellent.
Lekker in summer but good all year round.
