A coupla surfable days this week to keep everyone wet and happy. With the spring tides during the week timing was everything to catch your spot working just right. Smile if you caught the happy hour! Even CarPark John got some bombs out in JBay on a sneaky day off.
The NSRI got a big hug from the whale they rescued! Poor dude got tangled in fishing lines in False Bay in CT. After spending hours getting him untangled, the thankful whale swam up and rested his head on the pontoon of the rescue boat as if to say "Shot ou's!". After a brief rest there he swam happily off. Well done to all those involved!
SF local Mike Hill spent a month up in Nam hunting sucky lefts - he also found an absolutely smoking right for all those natural footers!
Seals locals and current Mexican locals, Brad and Hannah, are taking a break from "work" (which involves surfing every day!) and have gone north on a surf trip up to Baja. Looks like they're scoring some great surf.
Some renovations at Surf Centre last week now see's a whole bunch more space for stock, so pop in for all your surf stuff, as well as some really cool hand-painted longboard fins to spruce up your log.
A partial Solar eclipse last week saw plenty peeps bugging out their eyeballs trying to get a glimpse of it. Christo Zietsmann tried to get a pic but it didn't quite turn out as planned, although the green flash looked kinda cool anyhows.
Some stinky hot summer weather midweek saw temp's soaring up into the 40's and everyone flocking to the beach for a cool down. The heat gave rise to some kiff sunrises and sunsets.
Before we got klapped by the heat the day started off a bit foggy misty. What's the difference between fog and mist? Visibility apparently. It depends on how far you can see through them. If you in it and can't see more than a km away - that's fog, if you can see over a km then it's mist. That lil nugget might just win you the next Trivial Pursuit game.
JBays Dylan Lightfoot is competing in France at the moment, and in between the QS grind is finding some time to go on a few rather strange looking surf missions with his mates!
Despite a few shark sightings recently, remember that not ALL sharks are scary!
