Sweet shot with the exception of the logo.... If you in fact do have copy rights to your photography (indicated in the bottom left of the pic) you don't need to junk it up!

Findog? See what you miss when you dont check in on the weekends! I am guessing it obviously had something to do with burners comment how does the saying go...oh yeah "birds of a feather flock together".

It is John McArthy. Anyone who's surfed Durban when its heavy will know what a good ride that is. By the way check out his new publication at www.thebombsurf.com Good stuff!

findog, have you ever even been in this position? All i can feel is respect for this dude. There are some local boys here who get waves that would freak me out for weeks and still act like d-bags in the line up. If you surf, love it!

Still findog comments like that are not appreciated. Keep them to yourself even if they are a joke.

findog78 I don't think surfing is for you, you'd be better suited to spending your weekends hang out outside Spar shops drinking whitelightning bumming cigarettes from passers by. Calm the language and curb the rascist remarks!

haha ill at findog creased!!! i thaught it was sl8r at 1st but the barel stance wud be more relaxed with slates i think and the obv absence of a merik or a big quiky logo on the board....... the wave is 2.5x overhead i think a 6'6 is justifiable

I arrived in Durban the day this swell hit! When I flew over the beaches I could see it breaking on the outside banks, lines stacking up and generally going off...couldn't unpack my board fast enough! Will remember it for a while!
