And I Quote:
Cave Rock, South Africa
Wonderful. In glassy conditions, it's at its best. Needs a clean south-easterly groundswell with light offshore wind. Gets dangerously shallow during the low tide.
The surfingcapital is without doubt Durban, where warm water and kind currents have created a thriving surfing scene. New Pier is at its heart, with sand-bottomed tube rides guaranteed on good days. At the other extreme, expect to be scarred or scared at the unforgiving exposed reefbreak at Cave Rock.
