Four time world champ Mark Richards rates John Paarman riding Sunset back in the day as the best that Sunset has been ridden. Ever.
Another area fallen into disrepair are the fences which prevent access to the dune area's between the beach and boardwalk. They were there for a reason - to stop peeps just missioning over the dunes wherever they wanted to. The hiccup with ou's making their own paths over the dunes is that it creates a break in the dune and accelerates sand loss. The dunes are important to help stabilise the beach, so we really need to protect them. If you have enough vooma in your legs to surf, then you have enough vooma in them to walk the extra 50m to either end of the dune to check the surf. Go round not over!
Same applies in the Pipe area. The new fences are up, so stick to using the boardwalk access and don't moering over the dunes wherever you feel like. Things are looking super rocky on the beaches at the moment, so despite hating the beasterly easterlies, we really do need some serious onshores to deposit some sand back again. Speaking of which - looks like east most of this week...bleh!
Apparently plots were on sale around that time for about R3000. Lotsa ballies still kicking themselves today for not laying down the cash.
