BARRELS FOR BREAKFAST, AIRS FOR LUNCH!

Jul 012016

The sun rose in South Africa this morning with perfect groomed open ocean swells delivering a tube riding fest for free surfers and competitors alike. Each set brought hoots from the beach as the worlds best surfers threaded the deep thick barrels on offer. “When we turned up at the beach this morning the waves were pumping. Barrels and big turns everywhere and a lot of really good heats.”


Not only great waves but Fred took out the all important heat win to advance. After a few blistering heats it was time for a morning coffee while the wind switched and the air guys took advantage. From mid - morning onwards it was like watching an expression session Air Show with guys pinging all over the place.

Local shredder Beyrick De Vries took anticipated the change and put on a show for the beach yet again with a dominant heat win over Kai Hing who also advanced.

“Beyrick - I wanted to stay in the onshore state of mind so this morning I slept in. There was no point getting up early as I knew by my heat it wouldn’t be barrels. So I stayed in that onshore air mindset from the previous day.<br>”
