J’Bay summer waves…….a rare treat !!
After finishing 2nd in the Superheat (only first gets in) I was ready to come home. Then I heard Kelly wasn’t coming, but Travis Logie was there as an alternate. I then heard Bobby Martinez might not make it either. I spent a lot of time hoping, wishing, thinking and looking at swell forecasts. After an emotional roller coaster of “he is coming, he isn’t coming” (much like she loves me, she loves me not, but worse), I had a chance to surf against Bede Durbridge. I lost, but had a lot of fun surfing uncrowded Supers and was happy to be in the event. Check out the rest of the action at www.billabongpro.com
It was good to see Heitor Alves (Brazil CT surfer) out at J’Bay yesterday – putting in some practice for the Billabong Pro in a few weeks time. Heitor ruled the QS last year and was impossible to beat.
.The web surf predictions sent us up and down the Garden Route hoping to catch some epic waves….we missed everything….too early, too late, wrong predictions, eech. Only “Surfline” had it right. Next time……
This was about a month ago towards the end of a swell when the onshore came up. It’s always fun when it goes onshore towards the end of the swell, because people don’t like onshore or are surfed out and over it. Plus the wave becomes very rippable. The top 2 photo’s are Adin Jeenes and then me……
Action aplenty at the Pro.
Holmsey does again !!!!
Jordy no. 1 !!!!

Lots of action on day 1. Beautifull day. Waves firing. Life is good.
Dale Staples won the VZ super trial to qualify for the main event.
I surfed against Kelly – eeech – the King is too good – could not stop his charge to a potential 10th world champion crown!!!!
Lost against Adriano da Sousa in round two. Bummed.
Looks as if we are going to jump into a start on the first day…….according to predictions the swell will start building during the night and the call is for an early 07h30 start.
First to surf will be the VC wildcards…….then round ONE……PSYCHED….!!!!!!
