West Coast Surfing

Pics: Koos Steyn / Graham Howes      Words: Dirty Habits
How many times have you been at a braai, and after a few six packs and a bottle or 2 of Old Brown later, you find yourself making wild plans for trips that you talk about at every braai, with guys you’ve just met. Well 7 days later I found myself standing at the exact spots with the exact guys who help me finish the 2l bottle of sherry. (Didn’t see that happening) How better way to start new friendships than over an empty barreling reef, alongside a long dusty road, with a Sedrick’s babalas.

Jaco Steyn, Bjorn Larsen, Philip & Greg Visagie and Gareth Moys or definitely no new faces to me. They have always been hardcore surfers, but just as natural progression has it, they all added kite’s to their quivers this summer. Now i regularly see them shredding Karma’s when the wind too much to surf.

This trip was a shot in the dark, the forecast wasn’t that great, lots of rain foretasted (we were sleeping in tents) and the SA Bodyboarding champs were on at the same time. So there was a good chance half a Somerset West Drop Knee team would be up there invading the waves. Luckily Elands keeps all the kooks at bay, and we had these pits to ourselves all morning.

Llandudno

Local Grom Tristan Lev is making his comeback to surfing after a 4 month injury time-out. Together with his side kick Jarrod David, they hit up Llandudno for a fun little session. With everyone at work, the line up was empty with some unfazed onlookers missing out on the show.

Cape summer sessions

Jarrod David, the owner a Liquid Force Wakeboard & Kite shop in Blouberg got more than he wished for, for his birthday present when he headed to the Cape for a quick surf session yesterday.

With only a few locals out, and Bianca Asher behind the lens.. he really couldn’t have asked for a better day. Oh and a sunset kite session to finish the day off.

Dene Botha Interview

dene botha

Welcome to the world of Dene Botha – surfer, entrepreneur, actor, model, MC, event commentator, TV presenter, sports coach, Guinness World Record holder, party-animal and tireless thrill seeker.

Whether its surfing the perfect points of Morocco or snowboarding in Aspen, paragliding in Spain or dangling from the world’s highest bungee jump here in SA, surf coaching in Norway or attending a trance-parties in Zambia and Portugal, Dene is always up  for an adventure.

Give him the microphone and he’s interviewing the country’s best entertainers, or MC’ing events such as ‘Peroni Cafe’, ’Springtide Beach Festival’, ’Sports Illustrated Lingerie launch party’ and even heading up the MC’ing at ‘Rocking the Daisies 2011′ .

The son of an international surfing promoter and an award-winning actress, he was surfing at five and acting in professional productions, including Shakespeare, at seven. Bailing school at 15, Dene worked as a waiter and model while running hugely popular parties. Soon earning more than his teachers, he enjoyed several stints in England, Europe and the USA before he turned 20.

 

Dene seeing Cape Town from a different perspective to most.

 

Date of birth: 16 Feb 82

Home Town: Kommetjie in the Dirty South (Cape Town)
Top Places to Ride: Anywhere along the SA coastline (Surfboard), Sea Point promenade (Sector 9), in and around CT CBD (Bicycle), my bed (?)

Your Dirty Habits: Surfing, Sector 9’ing, SUP’ing, hiking, running, cycling (as a mode of transport though – I’m NOT one of those leotard wearing speed-bumps) Speaking my mind.

DH: You are part of the new board culture evolving, people with an open minds who ride any board that suits the conditions of the day or your mood. Has your life changed since you added skateboards & SUP’s to your quiver?

DB: Absolutely, it open up new options for exploring your inner fun-maker / child. It’s all about the fun and the energy, with more equipment you have more choices… It’s about mixing it up. The problem is when you travel or go or a road trip, haha, you need a truck to take all your toys. Actually wait, that’s it! I’m getting a truck.

DH: You get up to some interesting things in a day, surfing, skating, parties, etc. give us a rundown of your average day?

DB: Insomnia usually takes it’s toll rather early, coffee and emails while planning the day ahead and waiting for the sun. Run, box, surf, SUP, swim (depending on conditions), scoff down some breakie, plug-in my Skullcandy‘s, jump on the bike and head into town. From there it’s a series of phone calls, emails, meetings, admin, castings, shit loads of coffee, dodging cars and taxis, and missioning around… Usually plan the day around the swell so will try get in the ocean at some stage, otherwise an evening Sector / SUP session, OR, you’ll find me at a Rafikis… Celebrating SOMETHING.

DH: You’ve been spending a lot of time behind the mic these days, how does that fit into your lifestyle?

DB: Give me the mic baby! Hehe… I love it. Clearly. “Mommy-dearest” threw me onto the stage when I was just a pup, it’s all been down-hill since then, acting and performing, and now MC’ing and commentating various event. It’s mad fun! Started with surfing events for Billabong, then other brands, then music festivals, then hosting fund-raisers, to events such as the Sports Illustrated Swimwear party, Cosmo Lingerie (Eat your heart out lads) and now on to rather large gigs like ClubvibeSA at the CTICC, The Wailers at Trinity, @ Door Cinema Club with 5Gum Experience etc. Don’t get me wrong, it can be pretty daunting (I used to lecture “Stiffs” on the basics of trade foreign exchange in London – RATHER intimidating), BUT there is no greater reward than standing in front of 10 / 12 / 15 000 people like at Rocking the Daisies and controlling the crowd – Getting that energy flowing… Oh man, it gives me shivers just thinking about it. Can’t WAIT for this year’s event! 4-7 October – Make plans around it. Simple

DH: Your dad, Paul Botha has had a huge involvement in SA surfing from the start. When did he get you on a surfboard for the 1st time and how much influence has surfing had on your life.

DB: My father is “Mr Surfing SA”… He’s the man! Best friend, business partner, father and hero… He’s done it all. You might say I’m following in my parents footsteps, one ‘stage’, and one ‘surfing’. My Pops was pushing me into waves at Fish Hoek (DIRTY South) when I was five, I got bitten by the surfing bug then and have never looked back. It’s a way on life, thinking, feeling and doing… We’re different people us ‘Board riders’, and I’m proud to be a part of the clan. Did the competition side of things for a while, until a serious of injuries dictated that I wouldn’t ‘Turn pro’… To be honest, I was more interested in organising the events then competing in them anyway (Yeah, well that’s what I tell people anyway 😉 )

Dene and Dad (Paul Botha – Mr surfing SA)

 

DH: You are involved in a lot of fundraisers and charity events, tell us a bit about some of the projects you are involved in?

DB: Rhinos, Global Warming and Feeding the Hungry I suppose are the things closest to the heart and with which I have been working. We have the most beautiful country here, and we need to look after it. Charity events coming up are the BOS Earthwave Beach Festival 29 & 30 September – Muizenberg (Guinness World Record Attempt for the “Most Surfers on a Wave”, creating awareness for Global Warming), Skydive for Rhinos 21 – 23 September in Robertson (Trying to raise money for our ‘Horny’ friends), jumping NAKED to try raise my R10 000 – Don’t event ask, think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew on that one!? A few bits and bobs in between for CANSA, Feeding the Hungry, Sisters Incorporated etc, the list goes on. I feel we all need to do our part… Nuff said.

Dene at it again. Photo: Nikki Leadbetter – nikkileadbetter.com

DH: Is there anyone in particular that has been a big influence in your life or surfing?

DB: Plenty, too many to mention… When I was growing up, it was the likes of Daniel Beatty and Michael Grendon (Komskom boys who were / are very inspirational), and now just seeing all the little ‘whipper-snappers’ like Michael February, the Brand brothers, and the Kommetjie guys that are starting to kill it on the international front – Go boys!

DH: You’ve managed to dodge the desk job pretty well until now, what advice would you give a kid coming out of school now.

DB: Stick it out, get that education (it will come in handy), THEN, find your dream and don’t stop tapping away at it until you’ve achieved it! You don’t need to give in to main-stream society (unless that’s your ‘thing) and do what makes you happy… If you are any good at it you’ll find a way to make money from it… Promise you. AND GO TRAVELING! It truly is the BEST education…. You learn about YOU, can’t go wrong with that.

DH: Whats the craziest thing you’ve done lately.

DB: Um, about to jump out of a bloody plane NAKED!? Yeah, hope I remain intact if you catch my drift…? (I said drift, not draft) Other than that, cycling into town everyday is pretty damn crazy – Those DAMN taxi drivers – YUSSY! ‘Life’ in general has been crazy, it’s a wild ride man… Enjoy it.

DH: Why is Cape town the best place to live?

DB: Really?! I could go on and on but it’s like one big play-ground, with a whole lot of interesting people and places. Gorgeous women, crazy parties, mountains, oceans, beaches, missions, nature, work, opportunities… LOVE THIS CITY! (And it’s pretty easy to jump in the car and head up the coast-line, either one)

DH: Anything cool projects in the mix?

DB:YES! I’ve been working on a DREAM for nearly 8 years now (As mentioned above – DO NOT GIVE UP… EVER!), it’s a TV show about traveling around Southern Africa… The name is set to be confirmed this week, but something like Get Lost or Global Nomads. The concept is simple, think “Going Nowhere Slowly”, on acid! Hahaha. ‘Adventure travel’ at it’s best! Crazy places and people, hidden venues and locations, wrapped up nicely with some quirky presenters and top notch production. NOT Top Billing, so NO 5 star hotels, cruise-liners, Dom Peringon, or stiff presenters – We’re gonna have a laugh, and probably take-the-piss a little too – Hehehe. Will be airing next year – Stay tuned for more. HELL YEAH!

Getting ink done.

 

DH: Anyone you’d like to thank or mention.

DB: YOU guys at Dirty Habits. Was honoured when this interview arrived in my inbox, love your work and will be supporting you guys all the way – KEEPING IT REAL, and leading the pack… Good on ya!

Exclusive pics from perfect Supertubes at the Billabong Jbay Pro 2012

 Billabong Pro Jbay 2012

Jeffreys Bay – Brazilian surfer Adriano De Souza is the winner of the Billabong Pro J-Bay 2012. Adriano defeated French surfer Joan Duru in small and difficult conditions in the final with a polished and dynamic display of small-wave surfing.

David Van Zyl

 

It was an icy winter day that dawned for the remaining competitors in the Billabong Pro J-Bay today, but with contestable waves running down the point, contest director Luke Egan showed no hesitation in sending the remaining competitors straight out into the water. “We’re going to crown a winner today, weather permitting,” said Egan.

 

Jordy Smith

First surprise of the morning was two- time and defending champion South African Jordy Smith getting eliminated by an on-form Joan Duru. In the small and inconsistent conditions, Jordy battled to find the high scoring waves, while Duru paddled into some good waves and rode them with confidence.

Second upset was a dominant Dale Staples defeating John John Florence from Hawaii. Surfing fast and smooth, Dale kept John John at bay all the way through to a nail-biting finish, with the young South African getting the nod from the judges. Dale was eventually knocked out by Aritz Aranburu (EUK) in the quarter-finals and finished as the highest placed South African in the event.

 

Maxime Huscenot

 

Although smaller than the absolute perfection that persisted throughout the first three days of competition, there were still excellent, high-scoring waves coming through and the remaining competitors were throwing it down on the fast, lined up Supertubes walls.

In the first semi-final it was Adriano De Souza against Ezekiel Lau (HAW) with the young Brazilian blasting his way through the heat and earning his spot in the final.

The ‘green room’ was the local hangout on this day.

 

The second semi-final was a one-sided affair between Duru and Aritz Aranburu (EUK), with Duru winning the heat comfortably and heading on to the final.

By the time the final heat paddled out, the bad weather that the contest organisers had been tracking all week was upon the competitors. With the onshore wind up and the rain falling, the two competitors went tooth and nail, with Duru quickly scoring a 9.27 out of a possible 10 points, showing that the conditions were still extremely contestable. after one particular wave Adriano De Souza lost a fin on the shallow inside rocks and chose to do a runaround, picking up his back up board in the process. Adriano slipped back into the line-up and picked up a nice little wave from way up the point that opened up for him and allowed him to score an 8.33 and victory.

 

Heats were run from dust till dawn

 

“I’ve come to South Africa and to Jeffreys Bay for so many years, and have always seen the guys win the Billabong Pro, and now it’s my turn,” said Adriano. “I’m just so happy, and I’m going to remember this win for my whole life. J-Bay is a special place for me and hopefully see you again next year.”

The Nixon Winner Takes All prize of a US$10,000 jewel-encrusted Nixon watch for the highest heat score of the event went to Nathan Hedge (AUS) for his incredible 19.27 score in the first round of the event. “What a sick prize,” said Nathan. “A few years ago I was in the final with AI and he needed a ten to beat me and he got it, so maybe it was AI who sent me the ten this year.”

West Coast Surf Trip

 

 

 

Jaco Steyn making the most of a fun beachie

 

– Wesfokenkus –

Words and Pictures by Graham Howes

 

Road tripping up the West Coast is always a gamble, especially when you have a time restraint. We all know the the chances of scoring the wave of your life and of course the reality of getting ‘skunked’ all to well. Yet we put ourselves through it time and time again in search of the perfect ride. The drive is all too familiar, the train tracks, the red dirt roads, the yellow potato fields. It’s like dejavu all over again.

 

We rocked up at Elands greeted by a packed line up of euro kooks, SUP’s and and the stench of rotting kelp. This place isn’t what it’s cracked out to be, and quite frankly they can keep that wave. Before the dust has time to settle at the foot of the Elands baai koppie, we say good bye and good riddance! Greener pastures lie ahead

 

Darryl Partington

 

 

We wake up on the farm, the steam from my coffee cuts the through the cold air, we stand outside, watching the the orange breaking through the darkness of the sky, we can hear the wave’s hissing from over the dune, we know there will be waves, we can feel it in our bonesl as the icy offshore breeze bites our necks.

As we sip on another cuppa java we are warmly welcomed by the Weskus legend himself, Albert Burger. He generously takes us all to his home spots’ on his doorstep, the swell is Westerly 3-4ft clean and a strong offshore, Weskus as good as it gets. The coast is like an amusement park, ranging from mellow reeling point breaks to gnarly shore-breaks with bantam size barrels, and slabs that make your balls retreat faster than you can dial your mum’s number.

 

The boys feeling a little fragile from the night before, trying to find the energy to paddle out.

 

We surf it all, the boys hit fun right-hand beachie to work off hangover and sweat out the brandy, then we move over to the hollow left point, were Darryl (the only goofie footer) has spend the past hours surfing it alone, maxing out on tube rides. By lunch time the tide drains and changes everything we paddle out to a right hand point with a little ledge section throwing a solid little barrel, the shape of the reef seems to make the wave bend and the wave just keeps on wrapping at you. As the westcoast goes we surfed it with just the 3 of us out. With more set waves than we could handle.

We had one more surf on the cards before the long trip back to motherland, but our plans had a drastic twist. When we arrived at Yoyo’s a surfer was knocked off of his board by a great white, and it wasn’t a small one either. So we did what any sane people would do, we packed our boards and headed back to Cape Town, back to the shackles of conventional life. We hadn’t even left the dusty roads before we forgot about the shark encounter and started planning our next trip back the the land of barrels, brandy, and bonfire’s.

Till next time my dear friend.

Claire Butler: What She Saw

 

Claire Butler: Cape Town Photographer

 

Claire Butler is a Cape Town based Sports photographer who has an incredible talent for shooting surf and ocean photography. Blessed with picturesque landscapes and clean waters, Claire takes to both land and sea in search of a great action photograph that speaks of movement, danger and excitement. Not only does she portray the surfers in a very unique sense, she captures a piece of time with the surfer, the wave and the location in one. Head over to her personal website to see her great portfolio!

 

DH: How long have you been taking pictures for? 
Claire: I started shooting with a happy snapper compact camera in 2007. Saved up and purchased my first SLR camera, a Canon 1000D, at the end of 2008. I started taking my photography more seriously from about the end of 2010. So all-in-all I’ve had a camera in my hand for the last 5 years, but more seriously so for about 2 years now.

DH: What equipment do you currently shoot with?

Claire: Canon 7D usually with a 70-200mm f2.8 lens-

DH: Tell us about your background and what got you into surf photography?

Claire: I’m a born-and-bred Capetonian – have lived in Cape Town all my life. I started surfing when I was 11, and with that came an addiction to all things surfing-related. My bedroom walls were always lined with amazing images of surfing so I think subconsciously my passion for surf photography had already started at a young age. After high school I went to UCT and studied film and media production but soon decided that I preferred still images to moving ones and took up photography as a hobby. At the same time I stopped surfing and took up wakeboarding, and when I was wasn’t riding at the cable park, I was taking pictures of the other riders. I unfortunately got injured in 2010 and had to stop wakeboarding, which meant weekends were spent back at the beach surfing or watching my boyfriend surf. So I started shooting surfers instead of wakeboarders and just fell in love with the genre.


 

DH: You shoot a range of material, not just surfing. Tell us about your work, and your style?

Claire: I’m still in the early days of building up my photography career so I’m keen to try my hand at all genres of photography. My current work reflects that – landscapes, action shots, portraits, wildlife, events etc.. I prefer a fly-on-the-wall / documentary approach to taking photographs. I’m not a huge fan of posed or staged photography. I like to capture the moment as I see it rather than try and construct it. –

DH: What or who inspires your work?

Claire: In terms of my surfing photography I’d have to say that firstly the surfers inspire me. It’s incredible watching them ride, especially on the bigger days. Capturing and sharing their stoke as they come out of a massive barrel or airdrop down the face of an insane wave…it’s an incredible and inspiring sport in itself. Other inspirations would definitely be local surf photographers such as Alan van Gysen & Greg Ewing. Internationally I’m totally inspired by the work of Chris Burkard, Sarah Lee and Clare Plueckhahn, to name a few. There are so many photographs that one just sees on a daily basis via facebook or twitter that are amazing and awe-inspiring.

 


 

Surfer: Jacob Mellish

DH: Where have been your favourite locations to shoot / travel / surf?

Claire: I haven’t yet had the opportunity to travel to any amazing surfing destinations, but a number of trips are on the cards for next year. Locally I love to shoot Jbay, Llandudno and a certain beach break, which I probably shouldn’t name but you’ll see it in a lot of my pics. Other than that I’d have to say my favourite “photographic” holiday to date would have to be Stockholm in Sweden. It’s an incredible city and I was able to capture some beautiful images there.

DH: Do you prefer shooting from land of from the water?

Claire: Tough one. Being in the water is more challenging and when you nail the shot it feels more rewarding. But I’m a sucker for pulled back line-up shots from the land. Both produce such different results, and you can be super creative with both, so I’m going to sit on the fence on this question and say both!

DH: Finally, for fans of your work, is it possible for people to purchase any of your photos from you or elsewhere…?

Claire: Yes, anyone who is interested in purchasing any of my photographs can contact me via my Facebook page or on email (my email address is available on my blog).
