Notorious for extreme weather conditions, Oswald Smith and Kyle Cabano decided to venture toward the southern regions of the Cape Point peninsula, to film a few sessions at some of the lesser-frequented wave riding spots around Cape Town.

Being so far south, the Cape Point region has the benefit of being completely exposed to the Atlantic Ocean and the passing weather systems. This makes it the perfect location for serious wave riding, all year round!

After collecting heaving top-to-bottom runners hidden within the Cape Point Reserve, scoring a session among the mushy onshore breakers tucked into one of the many hidden False Bay beaches, a uniquely rare opportunity presented itself to the team.

This opportunity came in the form of an early winter gift from Mother Nature. A large West Swell, combined with moderate Southerly winds appeared on the charts. There was no question about it; they packed their bags, booked last minute flights, and headed for the desert. With their thumbs held tight that the boards would make it, and the unsurety of what they may find, at that moment they realised, The Plans Changed…
