One of my favourite events of the year was recently held at the beautiful Llandudno beach in Cape Town. The Rolling Retro Surf Festival. Beach goers came out in droves and packed the beach for an awesome day of surfing and sun bathing. The weather gods once again didn’t disappoint and with a South Easter predicted I was bracing for a blow in the afternoon, but not a whisper came up the entire day. Photos after the jump…

Beach bums – summer is around the corner!

The other obvious reason why we like to hang around South African beaches is the plethora of bikini babes.

And if she surfs, all the better, it’s a marriage with the best of both worlds…

Alana Blanchard (Kauai, Hawaii) keeps our hopes up.
