Around 45 kms west of Port Elizabeth and a few hours east of Cape Town lies the world's best pointbreak.
There are 7 spots in the bay which need a big storm from the south west usually bringing offshore winds. Take a 3/2.
Magnatubes: a right and semi-left, gets the most swell as very exposed.
Boneyards: a fast and hollow right that works well on the smaller days.
Supertubes: the most famous part of the surf set up at J-Bay, a long peeling wall which in the right conditions breaks perfectly for 200 yards.
Impossibles: a shallow reef with fast and sometimes unmake-able barrel sections that can be 150 yards long.
Tubes: a slower, yet still hugely fun section where the wave begins to ease into the final connected section of wave.
The Point: an easy and playful wall that ends up in a close out.
Albatross: the final section, usually a fast right hander, but rumours abound that on huge days this section connects to the rest of the point.
