Where is it?
Situated in the quiet Wavecrest neighbourhood, there is a short walking path that leads down to the beach over 2 streets.
The first wave to be surfed in Jeffreys Bay. Point was discovered by long boarders in the early 1960’s, little knowing they had stumbled across one of the natural wonders of the world.
Not as protected as the other waves on strong SW day’s, Point does handle a large swell. The bowl offers some heavy take-off’s but after that the wave mellows out and becomes a bottom turn, cut back combination wave. On a really good day, barrels can be found here as well. A low tide means waves breaking right on the ledge and you can get fun waves here when it is too small to surf anywhere else. A South wind can also be fun as Point offers sections that can be truly blasted.
This wave is the perfect place to start your J’Bay surf trip. If you want to settle down and get used to the power and vibe of the town paddle out here. There is a gully in front of the car park but again your timing must be right. There is a long “danger zone” that has to be negotiated before you reach the safety of the back line, especially on the big days.
Point is best in the 3-8 ft range, depending on what size waves you are comfortable with.
