Description

Crayfish Factory is located on the Cape Peninsula. It needs SW swell to work, holding good size.

It is an open spot with rock bottom with cataloged waves of world class.

A long right-hander wave, with steep walls, only suitable for professionals.

There is usually not much surfer when it works but be careful with the bottom and the sharks.
