Crikey. What a week of surf. When last did PE get day after day of cooking surf and lekker weather. A slew of south swells lit up the bay like a Christmas tree. Thanks Neptune for the early pressie.
Humewood was cooking, plenty of sand dredging enema's available for anyone who was keen. Check out the galleries from Petronel Posthumus here:
The Pier was off it's pip. I'd surfed there for the first time in years a month ago and could tell the banks had finally come back after a long hiatus. So when the south swell pulled in it went ballastic. Pretty much almost a barrel every wave. Brownie Moulang scored the pick of the bunch with many ou's saying it's the best barrel they have ever seen in PE.
A couple of novelty waves lit up along the N2 stretch to BWB. If you didn't mind the sharks (both land and water) and a serious case of typhoid, then you'd be getting 5-6ft drainers. Richard von Wildemann who snapped this shot was frothing so much he nearly fell off the dolosse.
Millers had some fun one's too. Although did get crowded at times. Unfortunately there seems to be an inverse relationship between waves and line-up etiquette. Seems the better the surf the worse the manners get. Eish
A certain secret right point was doing it's thing.
Life is all about perspective. Those lucky enough to be out getting barrels and those in a bus off to work.
Life imitates art. Or in this case wild life imitates surfer. Or vice versa. was it the chicken or the egg?
Local Schoenies photag Luc Hosten is well known for his lekker wild side scenic shots and sand in all it's wonderous forms. But he is an all round awesome photographer.
He won a photo competition this month for this excellent capture. Bird's eye view trumping fish eye view on this occasion.
Get your summer shred stick orders into the Boardroom. Deno has his shaping machine sorted out and back in action and has the new sticks flying off the shelves.
Phew, what a kiff week. Plenty of stoked surfers about in the bay. Here's hoping we don't have to wait too long for the next solid swell.
