Photographer's Note

The Dorob National Park is a surf angler’s dream location. The rugged coastline is a prime location for rock and surf angling. The Benguela Current washes up against the Namibian shore making is one of the most nutrient rich and prolific fishing areas. The 200 km stretch from the Swakop to the Ugab River is one of the most accessible parts of a largely desolate coastline. The fishing hot spots are often named by their distance to Swakopmund such as Mile 14 Mile 72 and Mile 108. This shot was taken at Mile 14. We have been here many times and over the years the facilities have fallen into the sea because of coastal erosion. First the built-in BBQ’s disappeared and now the ‘long-drop’ toilets are collapsing into the sea. In this shot you can see a toilet perched precariously above the beach. By the time we left it had collapsed!
