Yeeeuw, waves all week. Plenty of easterly cyclone swell around, getting in to all the nooks and crannies. Humewood was the pick of the bunch, with some good sessions at Suicides, Denvilles and Fence as well. Some serious paddling power required though thanks to the hectic sweep. Had to pay to play.
Further west and JBay and Bruce's had some excellent days as well, handing the early week northerlies better than the bay.
The big seas and big rips meant sand got stripped off the beaches big-time. Both Humewood and King's showing signs of erosion. Much the same out in SF, with the carpark at Anne's getting chowed up even more.
Tuesday morning was solid early on, although pretty chaotic. So when I saw this shot from Basil of a chick getting drenched at the pier it was pretty believable considering the size it had been, but nah, Basil had done a belated April Fool's instead.
CYOH had their 2nd Surf Off of the year, and ended up surfing the Pipe in some blustery and wet conditions. Despite the weather there was a great turn-out. Shot to Grant Beck for taking the win over Alex van Rijswijck.
If you're looking for some lekker custom fins then tune Lyell Watson at Surf Centre, he's pretty flash with a posca pen and can make any fin look rad.
Congrats to Seals local Stanley Badger for getting hitched to his good lady Helene on the weekend. This has to be the raddest wedding cake ever!
Never to young to start surfing. Here's 5 yr old mini-mini-grom Jaden Swanepoel. Might be outgunned, but doesn't look like it's bothering him in the slightest! Next gen PE surfer in the making.
Pretty good week in the bay and beyond. Hopefully winter continues it's run....
