Big Wave Surfing at Dungeons, Hout Bay, South Africa. Dungeons is a big wave that can keep up with the rest of them. This right-hand break is known for its power and ability to scare visitors away once they look at it. Dungeons is a deep reef break with a couple of sections off the main break. The first main section is known as the slab; this is where you will most likely see people surfing when the surf isn’t too big. It has a great barrel section and a pretty intense take-off spot. The huge swells hit this surf spot every year during the months of July and Winter. Red Bull holds an International Big Wave contest every year.
