The name “Dungeons” vividly describes the terrifying and challenging surfing area near Hout Bay, Western Cape. Though being well known in the big waves surfing game since the Big Wave Africa Specialty held by RedBull in 1999, the spot was surfed by locals for a few decades before going international. Since then, many surfers are attracted every year, testing their worth against Dungeons’ big swells despite the presence of sharks in the waters. The best season to surf at Dungeons is the South African winter, especially May, for the best consistency in clean waves appearance.
