Swell coming Tuesday Wednesday next week for the contest.
The South African East Coast points will be firing from Cape Town to Durban South Coast.
Surf Cape Town Saturday and then drive up the East coast.
Just drive past Jbay and dont even stop for the circus. Head for Transkei

Even if Felipe doesn't win the title he still won the title. Nobody on tour comes close.


Q: Secret aspiration?
A: Buy Pezman's mag and turn it into a piece of crap.

That Jordan Couzinart guy looked weird. How does he almost qualify repeatedly?

My sister was at the contest a couple days ago, and asked me if I’d wear one of those WSL athlete jerseys ( She wanted to buy it for my upcoming birthday)

I told her I won't wear it out in the surf… dunno, I’d feel like a bell end.

Offhandedly I told her only if she gets it signed by the athlete himself, in that case I’d hang it in my man room. So she bought me the Jordy Smith one, and my mom’s now at the site, hunting him down to get the signature :p

So, if you see on the replay an old bat scrambling over the rocks with a red jersey after his heat, it’s my mom haha

ps: Swell's starting to hit Cape Town, so it takes a few hours, sometimes a day to get to Jbay after then, so I don;t expect the contest to be on today.

Kanoa is solid in barrels. I agree he's the man to beat this year.
