yep, used to be a local there, surfed Bay at 8' (nearly died, now I know why all the hotshots with their twin-fins were sitting on the wall watching) aged 14, bodysurfed/boogied the North Beach bowl and did the Sunkist suck...miss it loads

Big wave + Small board = the necessity for an extremely talented nutcase!

Ok everyone, cards on the table. It seems that many people on here have lived in South Africa at some stage and are now flying other flags. Own up,

Seems that Durban surf is getting bigger and bigger. I never rode waves that size when I lived there. Respect.
