Bit of an arb week as far as surf went, Thursday threw out some fun one's, but besides that there wasn't much to get frothed on.
There was however rare photographic evidence of CarPark John going for a wave. Ballie is getting his stoke back and is starting to spend less time in the car park and more time on his board.
The morning crew always seem to find something surfable, to make their early get-up worth their while. Early birds get the worms and all that.
Most of the week it was just blerrie flat though, like this.....
The next Surf Spot Renaming comp was for Humewood, and happy to announce it's now known as Gdbsaxprietha, or something like that! Kent Catterall's entry was chosen as the winner by Dennis Ellis, cos he felt it was a good reflection of the unpronouncable name given to PE recently.
James Ruthven-Smith got an honourable mention with his name of "Gogos" - Xhosa for "grandmothers". Cos James reckons even if the weather is miserable, there will be one around to tune you that you shouldn't be surfing there. And if you squint really hard with salt crusted eyes the old pillars could look like grannies
Pity Humew...I mean Gdbsaxprietha...didn't look like the above this week, but rather like the below.
This week's Rename the Spot comp is Avalanche - so get those entries in via the Facebook page (comp will be posted online on Tuesday) or as a comment down below. Entries close this Thursday midday.
The Wildside always offers an option when it's flat in the bay. And even if you don;t score a surf it's always just worth a visit for a lekka day on the beach.
Plenty of cool shells to collect if you go walking there too.
Dave went dumpster diving and found some beat up old boards which he reckons will keep him out of mischief on the easterly days.
Here's a few more shots from the surf this week...
Even if the surf doesn't deliver, the sunrises do. Pipe at it's prettiest in the morning.
Some wind around for the yachts. Nice to see a few back in the bay for the Wednesday evening sails. Used to be a big thing back in the day, with upwards of 15-20 yachts going for a Wednesday sail. These days there are 2-3 regulars who head out.
Nothing much on the charts for this week again, so the summer flat spell continues unfortunately. Roll on Autumn!
