SURF IN SA« on: May 08 2007 22:05:00 »
I am a surfer from socal, who will be moving to SA for a job in a few months. The town is in SA but close to the VIC border. How is the surf in that region, I have read in Surfer it is diverse reefs, points, ledges, beach breaks. Whats the scoop?

Hi, man from Socal. I'm 4rm SA. Dont mean to be rude, give me specific names of where u will be, then I'll give u some info.
Does vic border mean "vic bay" in George, near Plet?
If yes, then you got yourself good variety of waves @ your disposal. And "Musle Bay" is near by, such a sick consistant right reef/point break.

Hey SurferFromVicBay - ain't he talking about Southern Aus and not South Africa? In a way - we hope so, 'cause there's only one take off at Vic bay, and it's ours. Inner and Outer pool have their crowds issues as well. He talks about beach breaks.. well we know da beach breaks suck down here- So let's hope he does not come here - so that you and me can have all the sets! I commend you for your politeness - we should take a lesson from your on etiquette...mate. Why aren't all South African surfers as friendly as you? Take note of Andy and Bruce this July in Jbay again - rude, selfish et al.

Post the name of the area/town and will try to help you out if it is the place i think it is can be quite a heavy local presence when it's on.

I reckon u right about the South Aus location. Bro, shot for the compliment, I'm actually from Durbs, spent a few days in the vic bay area a few years back, u guys got some good waves. But, then again, I cant complain, with the south coast of Natal on my doorstep, man, its been good so far this year.
I'm going to Indo for 7weeks in July/ Aug. So, I guess you could say I'm trying to practice global diplomacy b4 I leave for my Indo travels.
luka bro, Keep it real.
PS Agree with u, Andy and Bruce- who do they think they r!

Let me know whats going on, I will trade some info about Cal/Mex for some local knowledge about SA(South Australia). I will be right at the border of SA and Victoria, the limestone coast.
