    It breaks every day of the year,what do you want?4ft and glassy every day?

      Not everything is about competing, Gerald. And yes, we’d all like 4ft and glassy everyday, so that’s why we all get excited when it actually happens. I still surf the junk too, but this is far better.

        I was referring to the dismal results us saffas always get if its sh!t surf in contests o/s and also never seeing any decal boards in the water when the east is howling here in Durban.
        Lets just make it an even playing field then ey?..here goes…
        Yay…Yay…Yay…WILL Those Overseas Pros please stop surfing and practicing in ONSHORE JUNK ,
        you are making us look stoopid at our own game and embarrassing us internationally….
        hows that?
        I mean its… 10am now,onshore,punt’able …and i cant see a soul in the water from ushaka to suncoast….

          That’s not fair to say, Gerald, I’ve often seen Beyrick, Slade and Dale out during the crappiest Durban conditions. They put in the hours and they’ve all made us proud this year on a very difficult world tour. Davey van Zyl too, he is always out there, and improving.

    we get it so lucky in Durban- live in CT for about 6 months of the year, what a mission to get a wave- obviously worth it, but sjoe, I miss durbs

    Okes really …….you guys have had kak waves …..crying like girls ….. the sharks there have not violated you like the ones in Jbay .

    Bru it’s like they are SMS’ing each other and arranging an organised chowdown of sorts here in EC.

    So at least you can still scrum down with the New Pier masses rather than a smelly breathed MTF.
