We sort of bro's... you know. This is our summer now..small waves, bad waves overall. Not like Indo. Start from Durban go south, Jbay then Mossel Bay. Don't go further. Cape Town is windy, small..not worth it..Best months for surfing is April to November...apologies you missed it mate! Travel by bus or train, best a private car. Good roads, watch for crime. Don't leave your girl alone - Never.....Don't touch local girls..AIDS.
The report is true and I have to say it...sorry SA people!
