Is Jeffreys Bay a reef break?

J-Bay is more than just the one famous, high-performance surf spot though. This is one of the only places I’ve been that has a super fun reef break, point break, and a beach break all within a five minute walk of each other, plus loads of other spots a short distance away.

Can you surf 3 4 foot waves?
