Ok, so who has pissed off the wave gods? Cos it's been dead flat all week. And besides the south swell we had last weekend it was dead flat the week before that as well. Maybe a board sacrifice is needed to appease Neptune and let him spin some swell our way again?
You know it's flat when the Great Lakes have better surf than PE. Just saying....
So if you claimed the bay was as flat as a lake you'd actually be lying, cos the lake had bigger waves than we did!
If all else fails - just get some waves painted onto your new stick - then at least in theory there's always be swell. Awesome art by Steve Bibb on a Mikey Meyer sled.
Maybe it's all these new boards that are responsible for the no-wave-curse? Cos how often do you get a new stick and you're just frothing to ride it...and it's flat. How's this kiff carbon beauty from Deno. Just as well it didn't get stolen - like all his other stuff did this week.
First the skebanga's stole a whole stack of fins from the shop. Then they came back and stole some surfboards, and Deno's bike. Luckily Deno and Merv went into full on Rambo-mode (complete with paintball gun and axe...) and went missioning round the bushes in the area. After some detective work they managed to locate the missing boards. Fins and bike still awol. So keep an eye out of anyone offers you a good deal on Scarfini or Reef fins.
No surf, no problem. The hippo's up in Sodwana just happy to get wet regardless of the conditions.
The flat spell was perfect to inspire some creativitiy. With the guys participating in this years Jam Jar Rally coming up with some classic designs. It kicked off at Something Good on the beachfront on Friday morning, and then made it's way round the East Cape for the weekend livening up random lil towns n dorpies.
This poor lil guy was found on the beach on the wildside during a Sanccob beach clean this weekend. The Bayworld peeps came along to get him, so he'll be fixed up and then returned back to the sea once he's recovered.
If there's nothing in the surf to keep you entertained just look down at your feet - you'll be amazed how many interesting things you'll find along the beach if you just take the time to look.
No surf, no problem. Go surf shopping instead. Good discounts at Surf Centre on guys and girls clothing. Go grab whilst stocks last.
A late arrival from last weekends sessions from Rod Green snapped at Avo's. Good to see a few waves starting to happen again there.
Nothing much on the charts for the week ahead. So fill your tank and head west if you're wanting to get wet.
