Basil Formerly called "gremmies" now uShaka beach;just south of Addington. Very protected from swells and as the result seldom gets bigger than 2 foot except in cyclone season (February-Mar)when NE cyclone swells come marching in from Madagascar then Offshore reef (Vetch's pier) just 500m to South produces awesome hollow rights averaging 4 foot plus. Sadly this condition only happens two or three times per year. For the rest of the year great place to learn to surf.

STUART MILLER Definitely close to Vetchies Pier . On an easterly swell I used to surf small waves on the inside of Vetchies that broke on this little right hand brake . Each time the bank created this perfect little machine type wave. The years would have been between 1966 and 1970. I now live in Caloundra Australia. Durban would have one of the best beach break waves in the world. You guys are very fortunate, Cheers

Rocky That is NOT New Pier - it is the "old" Vetchies (Gremmies Corner) now Ushaka Beach.
