So I bet you’re thinking : this is 1 cooked Chicken, Joe.
Well… I would have liked to cook a bit more under the lovely Durban sunny skies, but sadly this was not to be.
I got out to Addington beach and Veccies beach today hoping for a swell swell – after all : the last 2 days we have had 8-10 foot swells in Durban! But sadly – I missed those as we are all working super-hard on http://www.springleap.com (springleap is the future of South Africa’s garment industry, for sure. Check it out).
No such luck for this Chicken Joe
Sadly the waves were absolute mush today. Mush too mush mush… and incredibly the beaches have changed once again in Durban – the hectic swells of the last few days washed away the whole bank! Now there are loads of stones and bricks at Veccies – sucks deluxe – readers…. please watch those toes! My pal Mike van Heerden’s lovely daughter smashed her toes on one of those. Shame, man!
Anyways : I digress – the sea was still surfable (of sorts) when I arrived and there were some good waves were to be had – had them I did! I had my wiggly whilley way with den – surfing solid and true.
There was a 4 second interval between sets with usually 2 good sets for every 4. This was eventually surfing the Blah Blah Blah – that’s what I call it when you just get more and more of the same nonsense – Like when someone just keeps yabbering on about crap – Blah Blah Blah.
Sadly the swell turned ugly and I was forced to the shores – there was just too much Blah Blah Blah.
You win some – you loose some – I guess I won cause at least I surfed and had a blast
