The Point has been surfed since the sixties established Jeffreys Bay on the local and international surf map. Point is well known for starting big and slowing down ending with a bottom turn cut back wave. Not worth surfing on South Wester days, but great on Southerly days. The point is surfable on most days & best on 3 to 8 foot days.

The Point is home to the “grommets”. The unspoken local rule is that no grommets are allowed at Tubes or Supertubes before they have proved themselves or paid their dues. When the groms advance to Tubes & Supertubes they’ll be looked after by the older local surfers. The grommets will get a chance in the line up to catch a wave or to.

Surfers visiting Jeffreys Bay should first get a feel of conditions be surfing The Point. Please note that on days with a good swell, surfers need to take great care paddling out to the backline. There is a dangerous gully that need to be negotiated right in front of the car park.
