Located in the West Coast District of South Africa, Langberg Point is an excellent but heavy point that unloads down the line over a rock shelf bottom. The waves here are challenging and heavy when good. They break for up to 500 meters and deliver powerful sections down a shallow rock shelf. Scary and intimidating, but rewarding on its day. Watch out for sharks.
What are the best surf conditions for Langberg Point?
Needs a massive swell to start working, best from head high to triple overhead. A shortboard or step up is best here. This wave is only for intermediate or advanced surfers. It is not the most consistent wave (4/10) and never crowded (3/10). The best winds are offshore from the East and Northeast. The best swells come from the Southwest and West. This spot should really be only surfed at mid to high tide due to the shallow nature of the shelf.
We recommend wearing a 3/2 wetsuit in the summer when water temps rise to 18 degrees. In the winter a 4/3 is best when water temps drop to 15 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
