Sincere apologies for this belated blogpost but telkom has not been performing with the result of my ADSL line being put to sleep. However she is up and running once more.
Quite a bit has happened since my last blogpost and in just under a week we should be on our way up to Jeffreys bay for the billabong pro and we shall be attending numerous parties to share our stoke.
The tant invitational took place 6 days ago and man it was mental. We drove up the day before and got our filthy claws involved and managed to scrape a few drainers but what we really went for was the competition the next day. The night was quite eventful aswell meeting some cowboys who helped us push start our chariot.
The day of the competiton had us woken up, by the car park that has about 3 cars parked in it on a busy day, and was now filled with about 20. There was no wave in sight but by lunch time the predicted swell pulled in and it was huge. Each set was bigger and heavier and the guys were pushing themselves.
The results were as follows:
1st - Jared Houston
2nd - Mark McCarthy
3rd Johan De Goede (representing)
4th Iain Campbell
