 Información adicional

Welcome to South Africa's best known wedge wave. A bodyboarders paradise, it is situated in the popular holiday beach resort town of Plettenberg Bay and offers big barrels on the right days. The Wedge breaks on the sand close to shore in the left corner of the beach. It gets insanely hollow and powerful for it's size. Swells bounce off some rocks and head parallel to the beach to bump into other oncoming swells, creating the wedge. Not all the waves wedge up in this way. However, if they don't, it usually means a closeout because the wave breaks too close to shore and is not really depending on a particular sandbank to break. A short but zippy barrel can provide lots of fun in the right conditions. Gets insanely big at times on winter swell.

Ambiente

Locals can be a pain but dont mind them. Sometimes Theres a kak vibe in the water but be patient and wait your turn and eventually youll get something. The bigger it gets the less the crowds and more waves to be had.

Wow!!! - The locals are not dick heads?! Its there territory so they can do what they want. Normaly WE are realy friendly to tourists who come bodyboard there.

plett 90210 - this really is not a surfers wave espescially on the lo tide . plenty of good breaks in walking distance. mostly the locals are just spoiled lil kids who surf here 24/7/365 and have the tricky take off patted even pushing off the side of the rocks . Great wave just watch .. respect where respesct is due .but dont get respesctalitis and not drop in on one of those fags.and during Nov/Dec its a bun fite for nothing .

Localism - There is only one way to surf at the wedge... Have some respect for the locals, other wise they will never let you in. Just tune them that you respect them and wont take their waves.

Errores, opiniones.
