Road-tripping is not dead. Long live the road trip! Local crew Brad and Grant Beck, together with wingman Scott Lenton decided that a Red Hot Chilli Peppers concert wouldn't be the same without some Weskus exploration thrown into the mix. The ou's had bought their RHCP tickets early - and as jol time approached they realised they were still on holiday. So what better to do that get some double whammy value out of their drive down to Cape Town.
And being a bunch of goofy's, it wasn't hard to work out that the West Coast is the Land of Lefts. Goofy heaven on a stick. Being hard core guys, they pulled a 03h00 departure outta Seals, and had the Hannah & Scott Show for entertainment en route.
Grant forgot his pillow, but realised he wouldn't need one when they found some R10 quarts at a random bottle store in the middle of nowhere!
200km of gravel road and they were in Elands. The goofy footers JBay. Swell started to pick up, and they hooked some waves at a spot called Farmer Burgers....cos well, it's on farmer Burgers farm. Geddit?
They also found themselves a lil no-name-brand spot with some lekker waves, and dubbed that TG's (Toll Gate's). With water hovering between 13-16C, let's say it's been fresh - but our EC lads are tough. Chuck in some camping, lekker braai's every night, and you have just the perfect road trip.
Next on the agenda is some cooking Elands......
