Lockdown Swell 2020

We have been on lockdown for over 80 days in South Africa with all recreational activities not been allowed in the ocean due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has hit the world.

South swells smashed up the East Coast into KwaZulu-Natal last week and this was the first major winter swell of the year. The usual boogie crew were on it and claimed some of the spoils!

Happy Days just in time as the ban on surfing and bodyboarding has finally been lifted!

From North to South the East Coast of Durban was firing lineups all over the coast.
