Stay High With JJ

Still paddling out at North and New Pier every day, JJ, the legendary ding repairer, coach and full-time surfer has just about more stoke than any surfer we know. JJ has been surfing between the Durban piers since ’62 and has become a part of the beachfront landscape almost as much as the waves. Watch 65 year-old JJ reminisce about the days of denims on the beach, no leashes and candle wax – all the while showing us the ageless and forever youthful spirit of surfing…
