I have been able to travel quite a bit around this year in Cape Town. I have been blessed to see the most amazing scenery that the Cape has to offer. From long white beaches to the most majestic cliff over pumping waves. The Cape has some of the most incredible breaks. Coming back to South Africa after long trips away makes you appreciate the smaller things in life. Driving your own car through mountain passes or even riding waves in desolate beaches with just birds and seals around. This is what makes this one of the best countries in the world.
On Saturday this past week I had the opportunity to visit another one of those breaks. I went in the early hours of Saturday morning, picked up Michael Veltman and headed to meet Deon Meyer at the gates to the Cape Point Nature Reserve. This place is not far out of Cape Town and plays host to some of the best scenic set ups I have ever seen. Cliffs drop into the ocean of frigid crystal clear water and onto white sand beaches. All the while seals and birds enjoy a small piece of paradise. Getting down there the waves seemed to be off for the day but we watched the wind slowly turn and morning sickness became magic.
The waves were really fun with some decent sets rolling through on occasions. With just two of us sitting on the corner peak, we were in luck to get some fun wedges coming off the corner and onto a nice shallow sand bank to allow for good moves onto the inside and even some draining barrels. We were down there for about 4 hours before we made the long walk back to the car. On our way up the water just became a pristine carpet of unbelievable colours. The blue making for some jaw dropping waves with nobody else around but us enjoying some moments of pure bliss. It was hard to get off the beach and walk away from this beauty but I just knew we would be back again to enjoy the small finer details of this beautiful country I live in!
