Description

The Hoek is located on the Peninsula of Cape Town and need SE direction swell.

It is an open spot with a world-class wave and rock bottom only suitable for professionals.

Good right-hander wave with pipe sections, fast and powerful. Perfect for bodyboarders and experienced surfers.

Usually, there is enough surfer when it works: respect the locals, the bottom and the sharks.
