The BEAST Awakens!

For me, today was THE surf session of my short (5 year) involvement. The car park was packed with boards and jet skis, everyone was there, including a few internationals (John John Florence and Albee Layer) and the swell was building on a windless glassy Monday morning.

The waves were few and far between, but when they did arrive, they were massive! A few locals charged some serious waves and got the rides of their lives, including a few big beatings.

A standout from the day was “The Red board”, we cringed all day as he threw himself down massive faces, mostly upside down, with board in the lip. Jurie Miller you have a problem, but I’m glad I was their to watch you charge!
