yeah i surf a longboard and surfed jefferies at a reasonable size. Supertubes was agro but the tubes thru to the point was mellow and the break called kitchen windows at the southern end of jefferies was great and empty.
i was there in october and my 3/2 was heaps warm but if not there is heaps of surf stores there to stock up on extra rubber.

you might get some funny looks and battle a bit at Supers, but the point is one of my favorite longboard waves. Elands Bay is my favorite, but then I am goofy foot.
Longboarders in general are accepted in SA, so long as you dont sit 20 meters behind everyone and steal all the waves.
