Preview: The Vans Surf Pro Classic

With its silky white sand dunes and blazing blue skies, Lambert’s Bay makes for a picturesque seaside fishing village on the West Coast of South Africa. Aside from living off crayfish, stalking the African Penguins at Bird Island and rubbing blubber with the small Heaviside Dolphins, endemic to this stretch of coast – Lambert’s Bay also offers some cooking surf and this weekend, 14-15 May, the crowds will be pulling in and quiet ‘crayfish country’ will be firing with the Vans Surf Pro Classic. More info on the Vans Surf Pro Classic HERE.

      Hey Dutchie – rather hang-out in Montague Gardens and surf your local break, Table View.
