This past weekend I completed my second longboarding trials for making Southern Cape team to go to SA Longboard Surfing Championships and I’m glad to report that things went well! It looks like I’ll be seeing all my friends from last year again in Cape St Francis from the 27th of April.

The question is whether to stay in St Francis or near Supers in JBay for the off days when I’m not surfing champs (or for the two days we’re going up early :-). Having gone to JBay for the Billabong for many years I’m inclined to say JBay. It’s just 30-45 mins drive to Seals / St Francis anyway and who can resist a good Supers session or a relaxed Point at 2-3ft for longboard surfing sessions that never end?

Either way, I’m super amped to be part of things again this year and looking for sponsors so drop me a line if you feel generous!

    • Fuel Budget – R 2, 500.00
