You might well have read elsewhere that things have been going off down here, well, it's all true!
It got to one stage where all the beaches were maxing out, things were getting out of control!! This shot was taken by Ingo Meyer www.windsurfersmag.de
There were some sets rolling in at way over mast high, i've seen a couple of other pix around where it looks almost double mast high!
This was taken at Haakgat, it's one of the few beaches that holds a big swell, but, even this place was closing out in the channel and the currents and white water were making it difficult to get out.
I went out at one time and i was sure i was way out back and then the horizon was just looming up ahead of me, it was rising like a tidal wave, the ocean disappeared down as the water was sucking in front of it, i had to bear away, head down wind and managed to get around the thing as it broke, it was a mass of white water upwind, like an avalanche, had i gone down on that i don't know what would have happened??
I still managed to throw the odd cheeky jump out there ;)
a tweaked pushy this one.
In 7 years of coming here i've never seen the waves that big with a South East wind blowing....
The second day wasn't as big but haakgat wasn't happening either, too chopped up and nasty, i headed to big bay and had a fun sail there, even though that was closing out between the rocks, still i find big bay a strange place to sail? i really don't see the attraction?
Blouberg beach front has been the best session in the last few days, i had a fun session on my new 4.2, more of which i hope i can tell you about soon..Go to http://www.ripandslash.com for the full website and latest news/pics/videos
