Maldives not Millers for me this week. So a "Week That Was..." wrap from the other side of the equator. Waves up here and waves back home. But I think the one's here are a wee bit better.
Snuck a fun session slightly overhead sesh in at Cokes in between work,work,work. So kiff to be surfing in boardies on some juicy waves. Also fun to get that "oooh vok" feeling when the freak hourly set rolls through that's triple the size of the normal sets. Point those toes and paddle ya ass off....
A few waves about, with the wildside being the pick of the bunch. Normal story - further west you drove the better the surf you got. Although wave size and wildlife seem directly proportional. Ou's had a visitor at Seals beachie over the weekend....
Congrats to local legend Jon Scheepers who celebrated his 70th birthday last week. Ya all owe the ballie a few b'day waves! Wonder how many car-parks he's worn out in his years of surf checks??
I'm not the only one surf tripping at the moment. Ex-local Brad Moolman (now living in Dubai) took a spin over to Sri Lanka to grab a few waves. Looks like it was pretty schweet.
Pretty flipping spectacular week for sunrises and sunsets in the Bay. For all the kak we have to endure to live here, it's the things like this that make Africa worth all the effort.

Not content with just putting on a light show, the clouds decided to get in on the action as well. Chris Scott snapped some alien-looking one's out in SF.
It was Ironman weekend, and PE put on it's best show for all the tourists and competitors. Lekker to see SuperSport getting our 'hood some coverage. And she showed up for the party for sure.
Waves in Aus for the Margaret River Pro. Jordy recovered from a sketchy Round 4 heat and won his Rd 5 tie against Flores - so he's in the Quarters.
For every yin there's a yang, so you pay for the good days with the flat one's. One thing's for sure. Every week in PE has it's flat days...
Looks like the possibility of a few fun lil waves this week, so snooze you lose. Nothing like a dose of salt water to wash away the worries.
