Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Sitting directly in the path of the Roaring 40s this is one of the most consistent areas in the world. Split into three main areas, the western Cape Town side, the south facing which holds J Bay and the Garden Route towards and the east around Durban where the city beaches can produce epic, glassy barrels. Surfed since Durban locals discovered the belly board in the 1920s. Winter is the most consistent and waves here can rival any in the world for size. Two oceans, the Atlantic and Indian meet here with one being cold and the other tropical. Sea-life is abundant as are sharks and many of the main beaches are netted but attacks do happen. Sea temperatures vary between 14° to 22°C and 57°F to 72°F.
