Another year gone by. Did you get barreled off your pip? Get smashed by a hollow Hummies drainer? Pull off a classic GoPro selfie? Sit out in the line-up watching an awesome sunset? Grab a solo session in some cooking surf? Take the surf trip of your dreams? If you didn't, well, then there's at least some things you can add to the list of new year's resolutions!
Here's a quick look back at the first quarter of 2013 - the year that was.
January 2013 - there was some surf about, mainly west of PE, with Supers & St Francis having a few pumping days. In PE, just the wind pumped! And a car got stolen from the Pipe carpark. Ou's braai'd on the pillars at Humewood. Work started on the new skatepark. Chappi went finless. Dylan went eco-friendly.
February 2013 - pretty quite surfwise, some wildside sessions were the call. Fence had a couple. Some classic vintage pics landed on my desk. Seals and PE from back in the day, including evidence that Denvils used to be a cranking barrel. Muppets started exploring Algoa Bay for oil & gas reserves. The Becks and a Lenton went roadtripping on the west coast. More guys went eco-friendly, and took their chicks out on dates on skateboards. Alex van Rijswijck got sponsored by Billabong.
March 2013 - Bobby the robot got fired up for the first time, and the world of computer shaped blanks dawned on PE. Some swell finally kicked in. Even broke a few boards. Avo's was off it's pip, and Millers was firing. Crowds were thick. Jaryd got dropped in on for the 5000th time and decided to make plans to emigrate to Aus. Hummies had lotsa waves in the frequent easts. Dylan Lightfoot won the u18 & u20 divisions of the Billabong series in Durbs. Work started on Something Bad to turn it back into Something Good. ex-PE local Craig Potgieter (aka Pottie) gets made head of Surfing South Australia.
