The Atlantic's powerful westerly swells roll into Yzerfontein, making it a prime surfing spot. Surfing at Yzerfontein was pioneered by the likes of the legendary John Whitmore, in the 1950s. He and his cronies would spend weekends surfing at Yzerfontein. Yzerfontein's surf-break is sometimes called Schaap Eiland.
