Yesterday after my exam, I headed to the ocean with two good friends, was so good to be in the water again and we got some epic footage. Will be making an edit as soon as I get the chance. Theres some epic footage.

In the meantime I have taken framegrabs of the most interesting waves and am uploading them for your viewing pleasure.

join the caravan of love

Every woman every man

I walked around the beautiful town of stellenbosch today and took a few photos. Nothing great was good to get out though.

Here are a few of the nicer ones:

A massive leaf I came across, use my foot at the top for reference.
I gave my design skills some testing. Not quite sure if  I like it or not.

"I was so high"

So high, that I saw Robben island, Seal island, Table mountain, Strand, Grabouw and even up to the west coast. That is how high I was today!

While watching the trailer of Rob Machado's movie, I came across the quote: "It is when you are all alone that you are least alone". I think it is pretty true and agree fully.

I decided to hike to the summit of one of the mountains in Stellenbosch the view is unreal so stoked I did. On my own when I was least alone.

Here area a couple of photos:

It speaks for itself
Apparently 404m above sea level

Today in my state of boredom I decided that a watermark on my photos would not be such a bad idea. After alot of pondering I came up with V L B images, V L B standing for vivalaboogie ofcourse.

Here is a photo with the watermark. A photo taken in capetown a while back.

greener pastures

Yesterday after a shit day in the office, I took my camera and went to go catch some light on the sun shiny day.

I was quite aggravated as the result of a maths test that looked like a foreign language to me, but after a few clicks that was all gone.

Nothing special about these photos really just some images burn't onto the image processor and put online for viewing pleasure.

Had a lovely weekend in saldanha, didn't score epic waves but had some fun ones and some epic times.

I took lots of photos and have a fair amount of GoPro footage that will soon becomean edit as soon as I get some off time.

I am going to surf a little bit this week seeing as I am only writing my first exam on thursday.

Here are the photos:

 I guess the people who were there before us drank black labels

 It looks good

Yes indeed I do go left sometimes

Tomorow I return to the town of Saldanha on the west coast. I am going with the boland bodyboarding association to help with a bodyboarding development clinic. I really do love going there. It's nearby but still creates that feeling of getting away.

My exams are coming up now and if all goes well will be treated with a 7 week holiday thereafter. Frothing is an understatement.

Here are some photos from previous trips to Saldanha:
