Give the dog a bone! Boneyards doing it's thing during the last week. Luckily Neptune threw us all a bone with a few waves about to have a bit of fun on.
Not only did we get some surf, the slip towards summer means that the sunsets are getting earlier, but still as beautiful as ever. Those that can do the early bird thing sure do get rewarded for leaving the comfort of their beds earlier than the rest of us.
JBay had some good one's during the week, but sometimes you pay to play. Lippie had his stick become two. Usually two for the price of one is a good thing, but not when that means your board has decided to do that.
Bumped into Deno at Chomp whilst trying to avoid the crowds, and he has a cool ride at the moment. Super short (yet super thick) foil board. Heaps of volume packed into a lil package of dynamite without sacrificing performance. Luckily rails aren't issue when you flying above the wave face.
Never having tried foiling before I asked Deno what the gig was. Turns out it's quite a tricky thing to get the hang of, as the take-off is rather "violent". One second you paddling along happily and the next thing you're getting ejected into the air as the foil takes hold!
No-one conveys sand quite as well as Schoenies photag Luc Hosten does. I guess cos PE is blessed with plenty of sandy shores, and enough wind to make them interesting. Luc does such a good job of it he's been invited to give a presentation on photographing sand at next years Cape Photographer's congress. Now we just have to convince him to start shooting surfers again!
Some cool VW bugs spotted at Kings Beach over the weekend. Gotto love it when your board and bug match - check the kiff pink surfboard on the roofracks!
Some beaut weather on Sunday - hot as Hades and a sea as flat as the Vaal Dam. No surf options, but definitely a lekker day to hang on the beach.
Doesn't look like much on the charts for this week, so you'll need to go hunting a bit to find some slides. Failing that just wake up early and get energised by watching the kiff sunrise. And failing that, just check next week's blog for pictures of the sunrises you missed!
