The skollies are on the prowl again, looking to grab your cabbie whilst you are out in the surf. Mark Impey is the latest victim, with his late Sunday surf costing him his car (below). Quite a price to pay for a coupla waves.
He'd parked in 2nd avenue and then hidden his keys under a rock in the dunes in front of Millers. As it was a super high tide he was sitting in the line-up only about 20m from the spot he'd buried them. Next thing he noticed a guy pacing up and down close by (pretending to be on phone). Mark had to watch as the ou turned the rock over and found his key!
He caught a wave in straight away and sprinted across the road, but it was too late.....and his car was gone!
So please keeps your eye's peeled peeps. Cos the bad ou's are watching you! The scum-bags are only to keen to affirmative shop your shit. So don't give them the chance. Don't leave you key on the wheel or hide it on the beach. Rather hang it round your neck or stick it in your wetties key pocket. If it's one of the fancy-ass computer one's you can get a plastic version made which you can take into the water with you.
Otherwise go grab a surf lock from Surf Centre for R500 - cos you can't get a R500 car. They have nice deep one's which can take a big remote.
Also, don't tempt fate by leaving stuff visible in your car. That shiny new ipad or iphone is gonna guarantee you a broken window for sure.
