I and Js in Cape Peninsula is an exposed reef break that has quite consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the northeast. Waves can be ok even in light onshore winds Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west. A choice of left and right reefs. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of sharks,kelp and rocks.
