Just a typical summers week, nothing terribly exciting surf wise, just some lekker days. Summer doldrums kinda vibe. Still can't be complaining about kiff beach weather, despite the absence of surf. Always cool to bring out the boardies and bikini's, and leave the wettie in the garage.
Squid season opening this week and the ou's bailed outta the harbour at St Francis quicker than the Boks can stuff up a try-scoring opportunity.
Never a bad thing to be able to hold your breath longer - specially when you about to wear a set on the head. Durbs surfer and free dive guru John McCarthy is hosting a Swim Free Confidence Underwater workshop. You definitely don;t have to be a big wave surfer to attend - it's for anyone wanting to be able to hold their breath longer in wipe-out situations.

Not a week goes by in the bay without some there being a cool sunrise or sunset. This week was no different.
If you missing out on your daily dose of barrels in the bay (well - to call it a daily possibility is probably stretching it!), then how about this as an option? Coolest lil wake-board barrel you can get. Sure there'll be a few ou's on the Krom this holidays trying to get a shot like this.
Anyone wanting to upgrade their stick from boring vanilla white to some rad colours, why not grab some Posca pens. And if your artwork sucks then maybe offer to trade some set waves (or some cash) to local surfers like Andre Clark or Britney Linder who certainly know their way around a pen.
Lazy summer surf free days are good to wander about Cape Recife. Random factoids: The 366 hectare Cape Recife Nature Reserve was proclaimed in 1973, and the lighthouse was built in 1851. It was the fourth to be erected by the Cape colonial government, was the first lighthouse constructed in the Port Elizabeth area and is situated on the southern point of Algoa Bay.
Sorry if things are a bit slow in getting updated on the website - but hanging north of the equator at the moment, and the trade-off for being way off the grid is that not always good internet. More than happy to trade lack of connectivity for some schweet peeling waves and only two of us in the water!
