West Kegs – Wild Tubes on Africa’s West Coast

Davey Van Zyl finds some glorious West Kegs on the far West Coast of South Africa.

West Kegs are Best

With a large crew of SA’s top surfers up on the West Coast, I decided to take my video rig with for the Vans Surf Pro Classic at Lamberts Bay. We had some insane waves over the event and the forecast for the far reaches of the coast just after the event were looking magical.

We found a heaving beachbreak, easily overhead, but with shifty peaks, loads of current and some heavy, heavy sections. The boys tried hard to find the nugs though and were rewarded with some gaping Kegs.

This coastline has so many spots, especially when the NE and East winds blow. You just need to drive along the coast and look for the lip lines. Great accomodation is easy to find and the locals are always ready to help, or feed you incredible food. They are so happy to see people, they literally open up their doors. While some crowd and fight at the more well known spots, many score by simply going a little further.

Check out Davey van Zyl, Shane Sykes, Justin Sykes, Dale Staples, Calvin Goor and Brian Furcy getting their fill of heaving, West Kegs. All footage and the edit by myself.
