OK, so the above technically isn't last week - but it's hard to ignore shots like this. Must be quite a crazy feeling to look over the ledge on one of these.
After a week of feast we got punished with a week of famine. Bogger all surf in the bay all week until the weekend, which then saw a few fun lines pulling through. Saturday was uncrowded thanks to all those ardent Bok supporters who live in hope that maybe we'll play better this week. Shoulda surfed instead guys....
PE peeps get out and about in search of waves - Grant Beck is over in Bali at the moment, and his boet Brad Beck & Hannah Bing popped across from their holiday in Sri Lanka to say Howzit - they then have to go back to work...in the Maldives. Some peoples lives just suck coconuts.
Faye Zoetmulder & Ari Kraak are over in Fiji, the surf's cooking - check Ari get a full on Cloud Break barrel. Luckily looks like a bump in the swell this week so should be seeing some legit cover-ups soon I'm sure.
Chris, the Pipe car guard, continues to upgrade his pirate's garb. Now he he has an eye patch and revolver - mess with this dude at your peril. Parrot next? From pirates to pirate boats. Ok, not really a pirate boat - John Davies set sail on Spirit of Millennium on Saturday morning, en route to Madagascar - guaranteed to return with plenty of stories, which should include the discovery of epic surf spots.
The ou's normally worry about GW's at JBay - well, looks like they have to add Killer whales into the mix too. An orca was spotted hunted a dolphin just off the back line. Kiff snap from one of the guest at the African Perfection guesthouse. How fast would you paddle if you saw him bearing down on you?
Surf grom Ryan Lightfoot showed some ingenuity for his schools Entrepreneur Day recently - Bomb the Surfer for a buck. Happy to sit there all day and get nailed whilst making some cash. Not nearly as scary as getting drilled by a big set at Supers.
Check who's back in town! Welcome home Pottie - aka Craig Potgieter. Popped over for September to come say howzit to his chommies, and get some Saffa waves. Tune him for a dop or tjop. Carpark John has his contact deets, so just buzz him at the Surf Centre shop.
Over & out.....Dale Staples dad, Daryl, taking a break from filming the boys and making use of a bust board as a sunshade. Best sunscreen you can get, guaranteed not to get sunburn.
