Africa’s Legendary Dungeons Delivers Dramatic Waves

Dungeons – the biggest wave spot in Africa, just outside Hout Bay in South Africa – delivered some sizable waves this week. Local photographers ROBYN GWILT and MANIE VAN DER HOVEN were there to capture the action. “The guys out there were having a great time,” says Manie.

The famous surf spot is known for its cold and often windy water… and is loved by sharks, a seal colony… and surfers too!

Robyn Gwilt captured these from “Wednesday’s shootout at Dungeon’s – awesome, awesome waves!”
