On Valentine’s Day, Cape Town charger Jeremy Johnson and photographer Eugene van der Elst scored a surprise session at a Sea Point outer reef.

Here are some of the moments they captured.

    I often see how gnarly those waves get when conditions are right.

    I need to skill up, so I can man up and take the drop in there sometime.

    is it that left near Moullie Point near the shipwreck.?..breaks on a big swell out at sea when Rocklands is too big…some of the waves look like small days at The Gasworks in Bantry Bay, which I used to paddle into in the late 1960’s when it was small enough to get into without dying!!!!! I miss Queens Beach and Sollies Outer Reef and all the great Sea Point waves of my youth, but I dont miss the freezing water!!!!

    No Mike, you thinking of thermos., works on really big swells. It barely broke on this day. Off the wall was great tho. This is called pedestrians but it doesn’t get surfed much except by the Bertish brothers and a few of the hard core sea point locals. this looked like an epic day.

    I remember hearing that Pedestrians was one of the favourite spots of the first crew of Sea Point surfers,then the Seafarer ran aground there in 1966 and the wave was never the same.still looks pretty good to me though!

    The locals named it Pedestrians ages ago, and some of them hit it quite often. I SUP out there plenty, on a low tide and a small swell. Great picture diary of what happened on the 14th Feb, but that wave’s been surfed lank boys.

    This is not pedestrians. Pedestrians is on the inside of this , and right up against the promenade.It can only be surfed at dead low and breaks at no bigger that 3 ft where it becomes a white wash. Can look into the barrel there if you are sitting at off the wall. We never had a name for this place.

    This spot is called Miltons left, next to Sollies. Seldom surfed. Spotted another guy charging it solo the other day, snapped a pic.
