i agree with durban boy. i was there in sept 04' and it went from 1ft to well over head in less than an hour. broke 2 boards and bust my knee pretty bad that day. first one when it wasnt even very big. serious wave but so perfect when its offshore.

Cant stop looking at this, amazing. I've shown everyone in the office and they couldn't give a s**t about surfing!!

I dunno. Could be funny convincing some of the mongs at work to paddle out into this

sibo's avatar

sibo Feb 7, 2011 Rating: 0

I dunno. Might be fun enticing some of my colleagues into paddling out and then just sitting back and enjoying it from the shore!!
