Jorg Brand had a fun surf at Humewood on Saturday. So far so good. However, as only a true blonde could do, he somehow managed to forget to strap his board on properly after his surf. All was going fine right up until he was flying along the freeway and coming up to the Cape Road turnoff when he suddenly saw his beloved board fly off the roof. It then proceeded to fly down the road and then finally got itself ridden over by numerous trucks and cars and ended up in pieces. A tearful episode no doubt. Well, I know I probably woulda cried if that happened to my board!
Jorg reckon he was more distraught by his board's death than when he lost huge bucks on a trade earlier in the week. Says he didn't sleep well on Saturday night at all. A death in the family is traumatic for sure! Luckily Deno has all the specs on file, so Bobby the Robot will be spitting out a replica pretty soon.
The funny thing is, a lil birdie told me this is the second time it has happened to him....
So, a word of advice to all those with favourite boards, hightail it down to Dennis at the Boardroom and get em measured up and their dimensions stuck into Bobby the Robot....just in case you too have a blonde moment...
