Coastal Havoc - Part 2 (Winter 2011)
I was blessed with a lot of Jeffrey's for weeks on end. This is what they call 'Booll'Shit' J-Bay in Oz, if you are even lucky enough to witness this magic in real life...
I was able to spend some time with Derek Hynd (who I quoted in the final page of my coffee table book about South Africa). We got to surfed a few gems around the eastern cape and shared some cool times; I even squeezed out a few of his wild ideas on a new board to challenge the norm!
And a Big up to the cool and collected Taylor Claire Miller as well...

Inspired By Derek Hynd, but he made me use my ideas for this finless surfboard to become a reality; Along with the help of 4 totally different surfboard shapers. Behold the DreamWeaver!!! (more on that soon...)

Bruce Gold was an honorary VIP at the J-Bay Book Launch, here he tries to get the last drops out of a very fine bottle of rum, provided by the nice cats at Sailor Jerry.... Big Up!!!
