Bogger all waves this week. Either flat, or east, take your pick. So if you dig onshore you were fine, but for those mere mortals who are a bit more fussy and like their wave faces clean, um, not much of that on offer.
The kite boarders were happy enough. See, life is all about perspective. All we need to do is get kite boards then we won't bitch as much when the east wind pumps.
If you were wondering why there was a siff miff smell near the beachfront lately, it's due to all the seaweed that's washed ashore lately. That stuff is hell on a leash. After about 2 waves you'll feel like someone has the handbrake on on your surfboard.
The big news of the week was the renaming of PE to whatever the hell they calling it now. It meant the perfect opportunity to go about renaming our surf spots. First up was Fence. Plenty of great entries but CarPark John who was Judge John for the comp, chose "Qdolos" by Julian Bray. Daryl Garner with "iFenci" got an honourable mention. Julian scores a mixed 4 pack from Richmond Hill Brewing Co and a R100 voucher from Surf Centre.
The spot up for renaming this week is Humewood. So head over to the Millerslocal Facebook page and get your entries in. Or if you aren't on FB just comment below. Entries close 12pm midday on Wednesday.
Stevo Kneelo from Jbay has to be one of my favourite local artists. I wish I had more walls in my apartment to fit more of his paintings. If you have a bare looking wall and would like to funk it up, tune Stephen van der Watt via his FB page.
If you know of anyone that could do a good job of designing a mural for soon-to-be renamed Humewood beach, then get those entries in. Humewood is of course the surf spot up for renaming in this week's competition!
One of the Pipe morning surf crew, Jacques, has opened up a coffee wagon which is operating down in the beachfront area. So if you spot Piccola Italy then pull in for a brew, bru.
Doesn't look like a lot wavewise this week either, so just get cracking on all those DIY jobs round the house and school and varisty assignments - so when the waves finally arrive you don't have to bunk anything to get on it.
