Pretty good run of swell towards the end of last week. Friday was the pick of the bunch with both Millers and Rincon firing. Pick of the bunch was the 1.30-2.30pm slot, and after that things dropped off a bit and slowed down thanks to the big spring high.
Nothing like a new board to get you amped. Werner was so stoked with his new fire-engine red Dennis Ellis Boardroom Vetkoek that he paddled it out in 60km/h winds last week in the hope of getting a wave. Luckily the next day the wind dropped off and the swell picked up so he could give it a proper test drive. He's ripping on it. Lots to be said for swapping your traditionally shaped stick for something with a bit more width and volume....specially for PE surf.
The ballies went to Mossels for the SA Masters this past week. Ended up with a 5th, which is good going. Some solid surf meant some solid beatings in amongst the cooking waves. Mush reckons in his one heat he had to duckdive at least 20 times. Dave decided that he didn't want his new 8ft'r turned into two 4ftr's so opted to surf his heat at Inners instead of Outers. Good plan that.
Ou's are starting to get amped for the upcoming Cobbles Classic this weekend. Craig Cuff been spotted shining up his single fin. It's gonna be an awesome event, so make sure you pull in, even if it's just to soak up the vibe. Expects toes on the nose, dead cockroaches, cross steps and hang heels. Logger heaven.
Some kiff new street art has livened up the car park at Something Good, with local artists Steven Carter and Joff doing some amazing work on Saturday arvo. PE's full of super talented peeps.
