Western Cape - West Coast, South Africa, AFRICA


South Africa’s Atlantic west coast north of Cape Town, shivers in the cold Benguela Current, which brings colder water temperatures in summer than winter, but also acts as a highway for swells to arrive at several kelp-covered, north-facing, left pointbreaks tucked behind headlands. Elands Bay has become a popular playground for Capetonian waveriders, whenever there is some significant swell action. To the south here are plenty of beachbreaks through Yzerfontein, Melkbos and Blauuberg leading down to some of the best big city surfing in the world at Cape Town.
