On the other side of the protruding headland from Dorothy’s, the SSW-facing city beaches host lots of random waves and it’s probably easiest to surf Mamba Beach near the Mamba Point Hotel or out in front of the Sweden Embassy, where consistent beachbreaks cop onshores in the afternoon and sometimes get out of control. There are scattered rocks and the ever-present “beach logs” to avoid. About a 20min drive south of town is Fisher’s Point, which handles a decent swell and offers long, shredable lefts, plus Lusama Beach that works best when everywhere else is flat.
