Dungeons, the world renown big wave surfing spot, located off the coast of Hout Bay, Cape Town really deserves to be called the beauty and the beast of world's big wave riding locations.
The beast is a huge icy cold swell coming from the southern atlantic. These swells can be upward of 5 stories high and have caused serious injuries to the handful of reckless surfers who are prepared to surf at Dungeons. As the surf spot is too far to paddle to, surfers are transported from Hout Bay harbour around the Hout Bay peninsula to the exact area. Apart from the icy water this area is notorious for the presence of the Great White shark and surfers have to be careful and keep a sharp lookout.
The beauty is the unbelievable views that you are treated too in this area. Huge cliff dominate the coastline, providing a dramatic backdrop to the drama taking place in the surf.
To get a great view of this surf spot find a comfortable spot on Chapman's Peak. Here with the beautiful views you will be able to watch some of the most dangerous and exciting wave riding found anywhere in the world.
The whole tour was much more than I could have imagined and, therefore, everything and more than I thought I would experience. Jac certainly showed off his and your South Africa and was an excellent guide with tremendous knowledge of everything. ARNOLDA VAN DER VEGTE
