Yum Yum Yum Yummmmm

Really was not planning on getting waves today

Got to caves and it looked average. Got in crowded as heck but still managed to get nuggets. Carried on getting better and better until it was solid 3ft perfect wedges just in time for me to leave.

Anyway got cooking wedges for about 45min an had a good surf.

The setup

PC under attack

Apparently my computer has 1000 virus's.

Thats a real shitter.

Going to loose a good amount of photos so im pretty bummed.

Got home from a camp today and it was looking like a koel-bay-day. So dialed a lift and got there with lightning speed. ha. Surfed until the sun was down. Got some siiiiick wedges.

Here are a few pics to please you

Please understand that it is spring and that the combination of wind+sun=DEATH. Getting blown away down here with the pumping South easterly winds that are known to blow this time of the year. Wind swell. Blown out offshore days. Whats not to love. Atleast with the changing of seasons we know that summer is on its way and our favorite beachies will soon be pumping again.

Been having a hectic week. Exams coming up and not getting all that time to bodyboard. I got some waves yesterday at a nice beach/reef break with some cranking lefts and fun right handers. Landed a nice flip in the first 30min and then practiced my lefts.

Going on a church camp this weekend(woohoo) so not going to be having waves. Or updating the blog' Should have some good stories to share after the weekend.

Here is a nice sequence of myself doing a nice reverse at my local break.

From the archives

Was looking through my photos when i realized that we have some good waves this side of the coast... Might not be crazy big slab like OZ but we definitely have our fair share of good reefs. Including a fun not so secret secret spot in the boland. Its like a mini slad with these bitchfatherfarker rocks that stick out the water on take off. Besides the take off its a pretty mellow out wave. DO NOT SURF ON SPRING LOW. please don't. thats why i am here.

Have had legend surfs there with good flip sections if timed right. Have hit the reef before but nothing serious. Here are a few shots courtesy of friendly photodawgs

Going, going, gone

Eye of the storm

Cobus Bosman


1. To turn inside out or upside down: invert an hourglass.
2. To reverse the position, order, or condition of: invert the subject and predicate of a sentence.
3. To subject to inversion.

To some people this is what invert means. But it has a different meaning to bodyboarders. Here are a few photos of different people inverting. enjoooooooiiiiiiii
