Dungeons Beach is the most extreme surf beach in South Africa, accessible only by a 15 minute boat-ride form Hout Bay Harbour.
Dungeons Beach is the venue of the Red Bull Big Wave Africa Contest that takes place annually in winter, with the world's top national and international contenders surfing by invitation only.
The beach is a collection of shallow open reefs and high impact zones with sheer wave faces of 15-25 ft. At the base of the Sentinel Mountain cliffs this danger zone on the west side of Africa's southern coast is the most ultimate extreme surfing experience for well seasoned big wave riders and lunatics.
Cold water, unpredicatble waters, wild sealife and sheer hazardous conditions means these jaggered Atlantic waters are never to be attempted without group support and co-ordinated jet-ski back-up teams.
