Another quiet week surf-wise. But the wild life was unfortunately not so quiet. Instead of finned friends it was a not-so-friendly scaly guy that grabbed the headlines this week. An English surfer had just grabbed a few slides at Elephant Point in Sri Lanka when he needed a bathroom break and headed back into the jungle. Whilst washing his hands in the back beach lagoon he got take by a large croc. Hectic.
PE might not have had waves locally, but at least PE locals are still getting waves. Marc Jucker scoring in Indo. Just to make sure PE keeps up it's wave count the Rothers have ducked over to the Banyaks this week. Expect to see some shots of sheet glass barrels soon.
Another local testing the warm water equatorial breaks is Grant Beck from Seals, currently surf guiding in Indo at Nihiwatu - otherwise known as Occy's Lefts. Turns out there are some Occy sized rocks there as well....
Not a completely dud week - there were a few slides around if you didn't mind knee high perfection. Don't forget the annual Cobbles Classic this coming weekend - gt those entries in. All the info you nee to know here. http://www.millerslocal.co.za/comp-news/2017-cobbles-classic
The annual Jam Jar rally kicked off at Something Good, and there were plenty of strange looking cabbies lurking about. Certainly made the morning commute a bit more interesting than usual.
There might not have been any swell this week but local lensman Luc Hosten has a way of finding the nuggets. Hows this mini Teahupoo look-alike - perfect for the ant sized chargers.
The 8th stop on the World Tour went down at Trestles, with Toledo taking the win. Jordy snuck a second spot, and retains his lead in the World rankings. Hope he can hang in there for the title!
Get those orders in for your summer sticks. Bump up the volume, thicken up your rail game and next thing you know you'll be having a jol in gutless summer surf.
There is a long story behind why CarPark John's looking all pimped out. But we can't tell you just yet....it does however involve zombies. Like I said. A long story....
The odd lump for the week ahead, but in between winds to-ing and fro'ing, so grab the weather window when it's there.
