Description

The Point, also known as Eland's Bay, is located west of the city of Cape in South Africa. It needs SW direction swell and its best surf waves are given in the winter months.

It is an open spot to the sea with rock-bottom, at the mouth of the Verlorevlei river.

Good long and fast left-hander waves and due to its characteristics, it is cataloged as a world-class wave. Only for experienced surfers.

There is usually enough surfer when it works, respect the locals, beware of the bottom and keep an EYE on sharks.
