BMC UK Racing Team on fire with 4 wins so far...

A happy man!?

Our South African Surfski Mule Dawid

The Awesome Easter Surfski Tour - RSA East Coast:
I can't tell you which moment was the best for me this weekend as they all
rank right up there. It could be catching the longest surfski wave in the
world at Cape Recife in PE; it could also be winning the 2 star World Series
event the next day. Another contender will surely be the paddle in and out
through the Keurboom River Mouth during the Plett Easter Challenge, but it
may be ruled out as my hard paddled for lead was all but diminished because
of these waves. Then there is also the paddle around the point at Nature's
Valley across the Salt River mouth for the SA Double Ski Champs on Sunday;
quite probably one of the most spectacular beach entries you could ever do.
The sprint races we had in PE after the main event were also really fun and
exciting, but are slightly dwarfed by the training session I did with the
locals at Plett Central around "the Blinders" in big seas....heart in throat
stuff with a bunch of really good people who are just too keen on paddling
to describe in one sentence. The evenings spent with the Fenn Family in East
London (after doing the Nahoon Dice); or with the Von Wildemann family in
PE; or the Eray family were some of the best I can remember. They are all
fantastic people who all absolutely personify hospitality; each evening
spent was a night to remember. An absolute standout of a memory is Team
Surfskischool - Me, Adam, Tom, Wanda and Barry (from Durban) - racing the
all races (except Tom who caught hectic flu) and taking a joint clinic on
Plett Central beach, as well as hanging out at the different venues and then
dressing up for Michele Eray's 30th. These moments are but to name a few of
the standouts in my mind. Can you see why it is difficult to pick a
favourite one?
