Bodyboarders & surfers in Africa

« on: February 25 2005 17:02:00 »

Was just wondering if bodyboarders and surfers can surf on the same spots on the beach in south africa, or is this even a problem. I'm asking because here in southern california, many beaches separate the two with flags. So surfers on one side, body boarders on the other. Its mostly because the guys get so aggro and start fights with each other. Thanks in advance.

i have been surfing for 6 years and all of my close freinds are body boarders.i do get angry at them when they drop in on me but not enough to cause a fight.surfers and body boarders generaly share the same spots in SA.

Looking for surf spots in South Africa ?
