Swapped Millers for Maldives this week. Not a bad trade. Kiff weather, a coupla lil waves, wandering about deserted islands. Life might be tough in Africa, but it's even tougher north of the equator!
Not too much surf wise back home apparently. Coupla waves popped up on the weekend to save everyone's sanity.
The town's without it's resident shaper for a bit - Dennis Ellis from the Boardroom has gone to do a bit of R&D in Indo together with Mervyn Goddard.
Surf Centre played host to record holder Chris Bertish (solo SUP across the Atlantic). The leather couch in store got used for something other than lounging about - group shot time!
Changing of the guard for EP Longboarding - thanks to Andy Radford for doing such a great job, seen here handing over the reigns to Lyell Watson.
Always cool to see drone shots of our coastline, and Chris Allen shot this lekker one of Sardinia Bay. Can you spot your footprints in the sand....?
The drought might still have us in it's grip, but it seems the seaweed trees are doing pretty well nonetheless.
Anyone missing their pop-out board? Gordon Schutz picked this up on the beach, so if you're the owner drop me a message for his contact details.
Gabe Medina won the Quiksilver Pro France - JJF's semi-final placing coupled with Jordy's early exit meant the John John displaces Jordy at the top of the leaderboard.
Hope some good surf pulls through PE - cos then it winds it's way up to us in about 5 days!
