My time in Bali was great. I met some really nice girls where I spent a lot of time with. I also took my surfing skills to the next level and I felt so good to surf some waves that are a little bit bigger. It was hard to leave because we had such a nice crew and the people around where al so nice.
After a really long travel I finally arrived in South Africa. (Yeah, it took me 2 days to get there and had a long layover at Hong Kong) I was happy that a friend of my brother could pick me up from the airport in Cape Town so I didn’t had to worry about that. I spent my first days at the Endless Summer Beach House in Tabel View. It is a cool place straight on the Ocean, with a view on the Table Mountain and Lionshead. I didn’t do much, I just went for some runs in this area, damn that is so much easier when you have a view like that!
Friday I left to the South African Nationals wake boarding boat. The place and lake where so nice and the water conditions good. I was happy that there was a practice on friday so I could get know the wake. The wake of the Malibu MXZ was pretty good. Saturday I had the qualifications and they went okay. I did my run with 3 inverts and some grabs, so I knew I could do better. We rode the finals next day and they went much better! I did all my inverts, tantrum, scarecrow, front roll, bankroll and I finally did a nice tail grab in a comp whoohooo. It was just a shame that I felt with my hs bs 360 and wirily bird. I was happy with my run and became first.
After the competition I got stucked there for a few days and that was to sad (not) I had an awesome time with Dylan, Deidre and Steward and it was so much fun. We did some GoPro shooting and we saw some really cool field fires.
