Life's all about perspective. So instead of getting pissed at the PE name change, let's take the piss instead. Gonna be running a tongue-in-cheek competition where you'll have the chance to "rename" PE's iconic surf spots. Best name (and reason for it) wins. Follow the Facebook page for details.
If you don't have Facebook and still wanna enter just comment below. Spots up for renaming are gonna be Fence, Humewood, Millers, Avo's, Pipe and Rincon (just write the name of the spot you are renaming, followed by your new name for it, and if you like add in a reason for your choice).
CarPark John will be Judge John and make the call as to who comes up with the best name for each spot. Winner scores a R100 voucher from Surf Centre and a 4 pack of mixed beers from Richmond Hill Brewing Co.
Will update the results for each spot on this page as we go along.
Fence. Now known as Qdolos (Julian Bray)
Honourable mentions: iFenci (Daryl Garner), Draad (JP Mulder), Stressles (Peter Lawrence - cos you worry about your car in the car park!)
Humewood - now known as Gdbsaxprietha, or something like that! Kent Catterall's entry was chosen as the winner by Dennis Ellis, cos he felt it was a good reflection of the unpronouncable name given to PE recently.
James Ruthven-Smith got an honourable mention with his name of "Gogos" - Xhosa for "grandmothers". Cos James reckons even if the weather is miserable, there will be one around to tune you that you shouldn't be surfing there. And if you squint really hard with salt crusted eyes the old pillars could look like grannies
Comp 3: Rename Avalanche and win R100 Surf Centre Voucher and a mixed 4 pack from RHBC. Get those entries in by 12pm midday on this Thursday.
Remember, anyone can enter, but if you don't live in PE (or somewhere close by), you'll need to donate your prize to your mate or the ou in 2nd place. Cos we can't ship prizes.
