Climbing in Kalk Bay

Our backyard is a playground without compare. Yesterday, Christo Swanepoel introduced us to a whole heap of bolted #climbing routes on Trappieskop. A quick 45min hike gets you to the foot of the crags, and then you have at least a dozen different routes beckoning. One thing is for sure: a Grade 18 on Kalk Bay rock feels way […]

Date night with Karyn Marais

Date night with Karyn Marais is rarely a tame or leisurely affair. An #Uber got us to the start of our favourite Peninsula Traverse, and for the next 3hrs we lost ourselves within the misty peaks above Smitswinkel and Simonstown as the sun set over the #BeautifulSouth. We timed the trek to finish just in time for a superb supper […]

Happy 2020!

The smile may still be lopsided, but it is big and happy. The good news is that my front teeth are back in place and that the stitches (especially those buggers inside my mouth) are finally about to be removed 🙏 Even better, I’ve banked my first recovery #surf of the year, and it’s time to fully focus […]

What I REALLY want for Christmas 2019 …

So it turns out all I really want for Xmas are my two front teeff (and not that long left roller I’ve been hunting). Kay and I followed up that wild reserve session with a quickie in Clov Corner, where a gust managed to flip the board and spear it straight back into my face […]

All I want for Christmas 2019 …

All I want for #Xmas is a long left roller 🌊🌊🌊 What a month of surf we’ve had here in the #BeautifulSouth, topped off with a thumping Reserve session yesterday. I have to admit my heart rate spiked with every one of those intimidating walls rolling in (and yes, my hit rate was well below average on the fading left), […]

Doringbaai Perlemoen Fees 2019

Zoned. Stoked. Buzzing with good vibes. Sun-burnt and high on ocean #oZONE. One hundred per cent after-action satisfaction. With bellies full of #kreef and #perlemoen (and slightly hung-over, I might add). That’s what a weekend on the Namaqua West Coast will do to you 😏 👌💪 The annual #Doringbaai #PerlemoenFees delivered on all levels, without for a single second losing out on the earthy authenticity of this […]

Jeff Ayliffe’s Handstand on the Table Mountain Cable Car

Great to be part of this kickass #naturalhigh that happened on top of #TableMountain this morning (way before most of #CapeTown woke up, I might add) 🌅 😊👌 Much of the stoke came from sharing it with Jeff Ayliffe, an adventure-mate of note, who bagged an epic Handstand #332 as part of his on-going #Handstand365 Project. This feat of incredible balance and core strength took place […]
