Surfing

The South Coast is blessed with plenty of swell and a string of points which create the perfect conditions for quality surfing waves. The waves are generated in the Southern oceans and sweep up the coast from the South west, especially during the winter months, intersecting with the coast at just the right angle to create optimum surfing conditions.

There are a number of world-class breaks such as Green Point, The Spot, St Mikes and Southbroom which are well known among local surfers as well as the international surfing contingent. It is the numerous “secret” spots which offer adventurous surfers the biggest challenge. When the swell is running and a light westerly wind is blowing, you can drive the length of the South Coast and dozens of perfect, unridden waves go by.

Beaches like Scottburgh, Umtentweni, Margate, St Mikes, Southbroom, Trafalgar and T.O Strand do have shark nets and provide good, safe surfing for beginners and experienced surfers alike. Green Point, Umfazazana Point (The Spot), Happy Wanderers and some of the other “secret” spots are not netted and are for the experience surfers only.
