When the week kicks off with a Monday that looks like that then you now it should be a good 'un! Mondays are meant to be blue, but sometimes they can be pretty too.
Tuesday decided it wouldn't be outdone so threw up a lekker morning. If you took a drive west there were a few waves to be found.
The midweek swell wasn't as big as predicted but it was still pretty damn decent. Forecasts still seem to be overcalling many of the swells for some reason. Maybe a change in algorithms or something?
You know the east has pumped a lil bit cos these critters showed up. Marc Pautz spotted them at Cape Recife
Dawn broke beautifully over a quiet Friday morning. Many took the day off to join the peaceful protests against our Muppet-in-charge. We even did our bit this side of the equator.
It was with great sadness that we said goodbye to a real legend on Friday. Turtle Morris passed away after a battle with pneumonia. Turtle will be sorely missed by the whole surfing community. May the surf always be 6ft and offshore for you from here onward. Love and shaka's to James Morris & family.
There will be a memorial church service at 10am on Saturday 22nd April at Covenant Grace Church (corner La Roche drive and Schaefer square, Humewood), There will be a paddle out at Millers at 4pm and then the wake at Something Good. Everyone is welcome to attend. Come say your goodbyes to a real legend of the Bay.
Check out Hagen's lekker article about the history behind why Turtle was called Turtle.
PE hosted it's first WSL comp over the weekend. Surf was better than the usual Pipe slop, although still some heavy onshore to deal with. Mikey Feb was on fire and took the win from Dylan Lightfoot. Crystal Hullet too the win in the Ladies division from Emma Smith.
Pity the skollies were on the prowl - breaking into CT surfer Adin's cabby whilst he was grabbing a wave at Hummies.
Some friendly dolphins to round off a pretty good week. Roll on winter.
