Surf around J bay in January

« on: June 23 2005 11:06:00 »


Myself and my fiance are heading to South Africa on Christmas day to stay at St.Francis Bay for 9 nights till 6 January, and I would love to get some water/surf time  - whats the chances of getting waves most days and what wetsuit should i take ? + Is Seal point really dodge for sharks.

Any info on general surf that time of year and what night life we might expect then would be great
