Just follow Main Road to Kalk Bay and look at ocean for break. Coming from Cape Town side, ocean will be on left hand side and vice versa coming from Fish Hoek. Breaks close to Kalk Bay harbour wall. Near famous Cape Town restaurant.

Heading to Muizenberg lookout for a car park on your right opposite a church just past the train station and Brass Bell Restaurant. This is after passing the harbour on your right.
Heading from Muizenberg look for the car park on your left b4 passing the train station. If you reach the harbour you have gone too far.

Barry McDermid says:
To get to the spot you need to either cross the railway line (hole in the fence manoever) and hope down onto the small sandy beach or take the small subway. Once on the small sandy beach head towards the brass bell restaurant and enter the water directly in front of the peak. (there's a small sand channel between rocks you should be able to spot). Paddle straight at the peak initially then vear normally wide right of it (be pragmatic) until you get out to the back.

 Informations supplémentaires

Be nice to the locals. Do not hesitate, you will become part of the lip if you do and you will hit the reef. Park in the parking lot just before cape to cuba restaurant, the spot is directly in front of you across the railway lines, small takeoff spot into a hollow spitting barrel section. You can see your car clearly from the lineup and there is usually a car guard in the carpark.

Barry McDermid says:
Depends on the size really and I'm no expert at the spot but the idea is to get into the wave as early as you can by paddling hard comming at the peak from the right hand side accross it. If you get in early enough you can tuck up after a barrel or do a bit bottom turn around the peak. If you don't get in early enough tucking up into a ball as you nosedive into not very deep water you may find helpfull. Don't try to stand up if you're getting dragged accross the rocks (you'll get a few search urchin spikes in your feet - needle required to extract them) it doesn't last for long.

Atmosphère

A world class reef break when it is working, right next to the harbour, sharks follow the fishing boats apparently so be aware, you can easily catch a train there as the station is also on the edge of the sea. The first time i surfed this spot i was shit scared because i heard all these hectic stories about the locals and the reef. was not that bad but i did hit the reef hard. i've seen a guy snap his board here and a guy get cut very bad. the locals thats are cool if you keep out of their way.


Barry McDermid says:
I'm a surfer so if the spot is small or blown out (strong NW/N) the bodyboarders tend to have more success. It's a quaint spot set at the base of a beautifull mountain. The paddle out is short and the water temp is usually fine. If you respect the few 'gods' in the water then you'll be ok.
A tip is to surf it when the kids are at school (like 07:00 - 14:00) cause the crowd factor goes up when schools out. If it gets overhead and glassy you can get some classic tubes.

Général

i love this spot. one of my favourite spots in cape town. i've only been barreled there once since i've first surfed the place and that was long ago. just be patient and dont't let the guys bother you. my favourite warm water spot in cape town

Barry McDermid says:
I surfed it regularly for about 6 years and I had some dream moments when there were just 3 of us with perfect tubes. But that would be late evening dodging the mid day crowds. I remember getting stuck out there in the dark at 6ft cause it was so good.
A lot of the time getting it at the pushing tide is what you want (the rocks are close at low tide) and it usually gives up at full high tide unless the swell is really big.
