A violent altercation between a local and a surfer from out of town has made front page news for the Mid South Coast Mail, a local newspaper on the KZN South Coast.
The headline ‘Surf War at Pipe’ spans the page and the report claims that there’s a war being waged between ‘locals’ and ‘outsiders’ at a popular but guarded surf spot on the South Coast. The article says locals are up in arms over visiting surfers who refuse to obey the unwritten rules of surfing.
Blows have been exchanged, cars vandalised and walls have been spray-painted with blunt messages. Will this resolve the issue? Who knows. ZagSpy reckons everyone should rather remember to respect the rules, and let’s all try a little harder to get along.
