Waves? Yeh there were waves! Snooze you lose. Hummies was the pick of the bunch for the week, although the Fence guys might beg to differ, and the House locals. JBay wasn't too shabby either. You can check Joann Stassens shots from Friday of Hummies and Pipe here.
When the ocean turns on everyone is stoked, but sometimes it turns on in the wrong way. The plankton critters are back and have caused a red tide which is pretty widespread along the coast.
Drones are kiff, but the real deal throws out even better shots. Vernon Els snapped this lekker shot of the bay - not often you see aerial shots which include a view of the wildside as well.
Drones are really fun when your kids have em and snap picks of dad cruising down the line. Dave Collins taking advantage of his son Tom's new toy.
Winter finally seems to be shaking of it's cobwebs and coming out to play. We're owed a good one after 2 lean El Nino years. Holding thumbs....
Not only the plankton critters making a showing, an orca made an appearance at Jbay just to keep everyone on their toes...
Not to be outdone the locals decided to let everyone know that they're the cool kids on the block. Can actually be pretty daunting with a whole pod bearing down on you in a wave - cos you have to wonder whether you'll head butt one during your duck dive. And in the man vs dolphin head butt compo dolphin always wins....
PE always plays second fiddle to JBay and it looks like that runs true for the fishy department as well. Instead of dolphins cruising the surf, we have lil feeshies doing a runner.
SAMREC had a penguin release on the weekend and a bunch of the lil black n white waddlers made a dash for freedom. Shot to SAMREC for all the great work they do in rehabilitating local marine wildlife. Pop in and visit when next you in Cape Recife and stuff a few bucks in the donation tin.
Did I mention there were waves this week? Yes I did...here's a reminder....
Shane Pyke put together this kiff lil edit of a Hummies sesh during the week.
Jordy Smith stepped up to the plate and hit the ball out the damn park - winning the Bells CT event in style. So good to see the Saffa back on the podium again - make it happen this year Jords!!
Shot to local ladies Faye Zoetmulder and Emma Smith for their 2nd and 4th places in the Corona Durban Surf Pro.
PE surfers said their goodbyes to an absolute legend of the sport. Turtle Morris passed away recently after a period of ill-health, He will be sorely missed by all and fondly remembered for being a great surfer, a gentleman and all round lekker ou. Rip those rights in the sky Turtle, RIP.
Here's a collection of random shots from the week that was to end off...
