kippie die klont

Embarked on the strangest quest last night. Went to koeel bay to try and get some interesting night photos with the full moon. Watching that full moon rise over the mountain was really something else. It was like a second sunrise.

Here are a couple of photos I took before it was too dark.

Boland bodyboarding trial 1 2013

Yesterday the first Boland bodyboarding trial was run at Onrus. It was amazing to be surfing trials again. The outcome of riders was pretty impressive especially in the Boys and Mens division. There were 16 riders in the mens division and I was lucky enough to come and overall of 3rd in the mens division.

Here is a short edit from the day:

kiff photos bru

I got some sweet barrel shots at caves today. Some of the best waves I have seen there in a very long time. I managed to get epic ramps myself as well. Feeling good for trials this weekend.

Here is some of the photos I took:

farting around

The waves today were not pretty but fun non the less. Tried some funky GoPro angles with the board mount but the barrels were few. However I am now positive that the mount will work and should deliver some epic angles as soon as the waves deliver.

Here are some photos and framies:

bitter sweet blessings

Not quite sure what to say. It was pumping while I was filming. It seems I got the short end of the deal. Pumping waves for the half an hour I was filming followed by approximately an hour and of half that I spent paddling.

Here are some framies from today:

koeel bay is back

Scored such waves today and yesterday at our local wedge. It has been a dry summer but the two days that have just past have re-stoked my soul. Two epic surfs and a one hour GoPro swim in between. I am stoked!

3 photos

Here are 3 photos I took while in Onrus earlier this holiday. Epic little town. 

All three photos were taken at 10 in the evening when it was pitch dark outside. The wonders of a F/1.4 lens.

off the hoek

Scored some good icey cold waves on the atlantic side today. Some sick wedges and barrels. Not so many sections for me but there were a couple of ramps!

My wetsuit disappointed me though so I got a few sneaky wetsuit flushes in between all the hectic brain freeze.

Good fun none the less. It is always good to surf new waves.

The waves were pamping! Good surf with old mate mafoos upon his return from Gran Canaria. Only the 2 of us in the water.

the great river

What an epic time up the orange river! Good times and had such an epic group. The party was pretty hectic as well!

It is always good going up there. Work very hard. But meet interesting people, get super fit, and earn cash while doing this.

Here are a couple of GoPro images:
