Fun Bowls

This past week caves was really good. Perfect conditions and decent waves, couldn't ask for more.

And bunking school to go surf is the best thing you can do....getting pitted or flying high while your friends are all at school writing tests.

Boland trials

So I'm back from a sick weekend in stilbay / jongensfontein. The drive there was horrible. It looks like they will never finish the road works on the N2. We had to stop at so many "stop & go's". It took us nearly 5 hours to drive to stilbay where it normally takes you 2 and a yeah, the drive was really shit.

The trial was held at jongens point on Saturday. We were greeted with pumping waves and perfect weather. 
Everyone was ripping so the competition wasn't easy. 

After surfing allot of heats through out the day i was exhausted when we had to surf the final but still kept my mind straight and focused for that last 20 minutes. I finished in 2nd place so I'm pretty stoked about that. Well done to Jacob Mellish for winning.
It was a great weekend of surfing and chilling with good weather and cool people.

The results were as follow:
1. Jacob Mellish
2. Rigard Smit
3. J.P Olivier
4. Jeandre Blignault

I'm terribly sorry i haven't updated my blog in a while but I've been lank busy so i have an excuse ha ha.

I'm leaving for stilbay tomorrow, it's the 2nd Boland senior trial. the forecast looks good so we hoping to get some fun waves. All the oaks are going up so the vibe will be good too.
Stilbay / Jongens is a sick, laid back, little town with mellow people and offers a wide variety of waves.

I will post some photos next week of what went down.

the beginning

welcome to my blog...
This year is off to a terrible start...i haven't surfed since last week. There's absolutely no swell and a howling south-easter. Quite depressing...but that's life. That's summer in cape town for you.

Here are some photo's from earlier this year...

My favourite wave....
