WATCH: Vibes Are High As South Africa's Beaches Reopen

By on

After a pretty bad lockdown in South Africa, with beaches closed and surfers picked on and harassed, the beaches were finally opened again, along with the bottle stores, and curfew has been officially extended.

There’s still a lockdown, and COVID is still rampant, but at least we can surf again, and have a few beers afterwards. Wasting no time, Eastern Cape surfers and underground legends Simon Fish, Nick Godfrey and Shaun ‘Billy’ Payne made full use of a decent little swell that was running in the area, as the surfing ban ended. They might even have jumped the gun and caught a few waves before the ban was officially lifted, but no one needs to know that...
