Nothing quite like parking off in the green room. Nothing more to say, just enjoy!
Thought we do have a big bunch of mad chargers here in Cape Town surfing Sunsets, Dungeons, Bayside, Tand and other ‘bigger’ wave spots I guess you haven’t really cut your teeth if you haven’t surfed Teahupoo.
Here’s a great video about surfing some of the biggest waves on the planet.
These moments, when you arrive at your local break just before dawn and you take a minute just to admire the beauty…
Fiji – Eighteen year old Slade Prestwich from Durban has just won the Volcom VQS Global Finals held in perfect 4-5 foot surf at Fiji’s infamous Cloudbreak surf spot. The global finals consisted of 9 surfers that had all qualified from 9 various countries including USA, Australia, Brazil, France, Japan, Peru, New Zealand, Puerto Rica and South Africa. The powerful regular-footer used big turns and precision barrel riding to get past runner up Deivid Silva from Brazil. He pocketed a valuable US$10, 000 for his win and thanked his friends back home, sponsors and Volcom for the great event.
Finally I’m finding some time to post some feedback and videos after the SA Longboard Surfing Champs held in the Cape Peninsula.
Long Beach was a dream location and the setup was great from a spectating and surfing perspective.
So I’m getting more and more amped for the Tiletoria SA Longboard Surfing Champs happening at the end of the month in Cape Town. My new Dutchie board is almost complete and needs to get some surf time before champs, so it’s going to be a close call. *Watching paint dry at the moment…*
Are you getting in your surf time?
