Feel like winning your very own custom surfboard by legendary Seals shaper Simon Fish aka Fishstix? Course ya do! Then buy yourself a raffle ticket from Faye Zoetmulder for R50. Faye's raising money so she can get on the WQS next year as she doesn't have a sponsor. She's also having a Trivia evening at the Cape St Francis Resort next Saturday - so grab some mates and book a table (R120 pp). Live music, kiff chow and lots of fun.
Thoughts and prayers with JBay ripper Matt McGillivray who underwent elective surgery earlier in the week to correct a congenital anomaly of his breastbone. Matts was concave instead of flat, so he had some panel-beating done to sort it out. He'll be out the water for 6 weeks at least. Get better quick kid!
Amba Holmes with some seri-ass sunburn action after the weekend! Guess which spots she didn't rub the sunscreen into! Summers here peeps, protect those faces and grab some decent sunscreen. Dave has a few good one's in stock at Surf Centre (Bronzinc, SeventyOne, Island Tribe). My fave right now is SWOX - which is a surf/snow specific sunscreen. Not available in PE, but the agent in Cape Town will post some down to you. Details in my review here.
Britney is not only a great surfer, but she sure know what to do with a koki pen too. Ok, technically they called Zig Pens, but just fancy koki pens for surfboards and whatever else you want to doodle all over. So look out for Britney & Robyn rocking their custom-koki'd sleds.
Sticking with boards - Brad Beck has recycled himself a 70's single fin classic. Reckons it's a heavy bastard, but once it's all sanded down he should be having some summer fun on it. The guys at the CYOH comp had a blast on the Catch Surf boards that Roosta brought down this weekend. They're made out the same stuff as bodyboards, so essentially foamies with class. Most are finless so you can 360 and slide out to your hearts content.
Summers here which means long days on the beach - and a long time your cars gonna be in the carpark and available for affirmative shopping. Don't leave your keys on the wheel - grab your self a key lock at Surf Centre. Be safe rather than sorry. New in stock are Gas fins for the Future/Firewire fin systems. Helluva lot cheaper than Future fins themselves - almost half price. Range of thrusters and quads.
