This could be one of the best but most inaccessable surf spots in the world. It is located in the Namibian skeleton coast reserve, closish to a Ovahimba village called 'Okandjombo'. (The closest human settlement to it.) First get to this village then carry on driving west along the river bed untill you reach a deadend. Drive your 4x4 as far as it can go, then walk. A 2 day hike along the dried up river bed to the coast, then head North and youll see it. You have more chance of reaching this wave than what you do trying to get to the many perfect lefhand pointbreaks on Namibia's private diamond mining property. You can see it using google earth..

 Informations supplémentaires

A very long shallow point break setup, with heavy waves. Big open barrels. Theres a descent beach break further up aswell. I doubt anyone has ever surfed this wave. Theres a great feeling knowing you are amongst the first human beings to have been here, besides the bushman hundreds of years earlier. Great shark fishing in the area.

Atmosphère

This wave is classic and rewarding if you are willing to get to it. Go with friends as it would be impossible to get to alone, not to mention stupid and dangerous, the Namibian desert has claimed many a life in its day. Once you park the car, you first need to camouflage it well enough of have someone drive it back somewhere.You could pay a local to watch over it for you but it might be gone when you get back and then you're proper fucked! It is a 2 day hike there and back through temperatures that often easily reach 40+. Obviously you need to bring everything with you from food, sleeping equipment, map, compass (GPS helps), first aid kit and loads of water. The last part of the hike is tough getting towards the coast. You are on private property here so if you get caught, youll be find and maybe even imprisoned. Just keep a lookout and use caution when making fires at night. Once there camp out for a while and live off the sea. Found it by accident hiking to the coast. Have made 3 trips here so far and have been classic each time. Noone around for miles but the catch is that if something happened to you, noone would ever find you so come well prepared, life and death out here!

Général

If the wind starts to blow too bad youll need to move away from the coast untill its cleared because its unbearable. You dont come necessarily just for the wave, it is the whole experience of getting there that makes it all worth it. It is a mission bringing your board with so go slow. We come here when on holiday.

Suspect description !! - Loved to know what Jono was smoking when he wrote this !! Nearest human settlement isn't a himba village, it is a safari camp 18 kms away. Check it out at 18°45'52.48"S 12°34'41.71"E . The area is part of a private tourism concession and has been for at least the last 20 years. So how he would have missed it on his "hike" in defeats me. Blue rope as markers ? For starters I would love to know how he tied them to the sand dunes on the lower sections of the riverbed as there are no shrubs. And considering that the route to the coast is heavily used by the camp to take guests down to Rocky Point (bay further south)I doubt that he would have been that incognito. I will try and take a photo of the break the next time that I am up there.
Just hiking in the area. Brings a whole new meaning to taking a trip through your mind......

Skeleton Coast - Namibia's Skeleton Coast is one of the Wilderness Safaris in the whole world. The Skeleton coast park covers over 1.6 million hectares and divided into two zones the southern section, between Ugab and Hoanib rivers, and the northern section between the Hoanib and Kunene rivers. The basic wildlife attraction of the Skeleton Coast is Cape Cross, which we can see a seal colony numbering in the tens of thousands.
