South African Surf: The swell-seekers guide is a simple, down-to-earth exploration of the country's top surfing destinations, from the most popular spots which feature widely on the local, national – and international – surfing event calendar to those secret hideaways that surfers like to keep to themselves. This account examines not only the waves that are to be caught off South Africa's beaches, but what lies beyond and beneath - which beach offers the world's best ice cream, which is South Africa's most sought-after wave, and even how geological phenomena affect the impact of waves on southern Africa's shoreline. Funny, irreverent and forthright, this is a must-have guide to the beaches and shores of the continent’s most popular surfing playground.
