Crunching Barrels – Western Cape

The consequences of a gnarly wipeout at this dredging Cape beachbreak are serious. A heavy situation nearby delivered a sobering reminder of this, plus the spot has a history of shattered bones and backs. It’s the anticipation of getting a square barrel that keeps guys interested though.

Look out for Taylor Knox’s cameo (wave 5) in the short video filmed this past Saturday. All photos and video by: Eugene Van Der Elst

    I love a wave where u can draw a high line and can still get under the lip in the barrel like that , not that I’ll complain bout the below sea level drops at some heavy spots !!!!!!
