This guy had seriously beeg cajones - he paddled, first at New pier, got wiped, paddled out again and ended up at North where he got this smoking right. As far as I'm concerned he definately pulled into the best waves while I was there. The sequence of this particular wave as he gets slotted is awesome - haven't put it up though.

more sharks in the car park than in the sea! Durban is netted most of the year cept when sardines pitch up - see the offical authority at shark.co.za for detailed info

Crankin'!!! I've not yet been to South Africa,but I've seen some pretty radical shark bites/attacks on TV documentaries and the internet. Are there shark nets at the Durban area breaks?

No sharks in Durban. Been surfing in and around Durbs for over 20 years and never had a problem. Now fishing past the shark nets is different, lose half of all your fish to the buggers.
