Bit of a slow week in the bay again this week. But as usual, if you put the k's in you could find something to surf. Sunday had looked to be a good day on the forecast, but didn't quite deliver as expected. Although in this case it wasn't the early birds, but rather the late one's that scored - with the swell jacking up a bit right before dark.
Bit of sand re-appearing at Avo's lately, hopefully the trend continues. Banks still not quite there yet, but better than a big hole at least. Sunday arvo saw a few solid one's rolling through.
The ISA World Surfing Games went down in Costa Rica this week. Unfortunately the Saffa's bowed out before the finals day, being skunked in their heats for waves. Still, all the team members did a good job of progressing pretty far in the comp before getting knocked out.
Team member Dylan Lightfoot had some kak luck when he went down with a hectic mysto virus which saw him have to go to hospital for blood tests and a drip. Thankfully he's back to full health again.
Arg, the car park skollies are back at it again. Callam Meyer had his Sunday go bad when his cabbie was stolen from the Millers car park at about 2ish whilst he was out for a surf. Anyone spotting a silver Toyota Tazz with some styling hubcabs let Callam know. Keep a look out for dodgy looking peeps hanging around the car park.
The Billabong NMMU Madibaz hosted a lekker comp over the weekend. Some fun waves and a kiff day on the beach. You can check out all the shots and results here.
Go grab the latest issue of the BoardTalk mag at Surf Centre or Summer Breeze Spar. There's R145 worth of vouchers in it for the lucky PE readers only.
Ou's get tense in CT. SUP peeps having a comp at the 'Berg and some mullet on his longboard decides he's over this whole thing and rides into the comp area and dive tackles one of the competitors, breaking his R5k carbon paddle. Ok, so you might not dig the things, but that's probably taking it too far!
Seals has been throwing up some fun banks lately. Local Grant Beck's been taking hos GoPro out for a few rides. Cos the only way to left in the EC is on a beachie.
Not too much to get excited about during the week - but if the charts hold out there's possibly something interesting on the cards for early next week. Until then -smile for the camera!
