Durban Surfing Videos
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, November 6, 2007 - 16:09

Here are two awesome surfing videos from YouTube, one a general collection of Durban beach shots, and the other tow-in surfing from the big swell in March. Why can't we get more of these waves?! Enjoy.

Shark Oversteps The Mark
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, August 28, 2007 - 12:40

Speaking of watersports, here's a story from the SurfSki.Info website about a friendly shark taking a playful little nibble of a Surf Skier's Mako6.

It happened off the coast of Umhlanga, where Anton Fouche was cruising down a wave before suddenly being jerked to a complete stop. A passing shark had decided on a whim to see what Surf Ski tastes like. Apparently it tastes like "pure, unadulterated panic".

The tooth fragment that was found embedded in the hull is being sent for analysis, to determine what kind of shark it was. I'm hoping it's the type that finds surfers absolutely revolting.

Surfing: Scottburgh
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, August 28, 2007 - 09:25

Here's the pilot of a new series I want to start, something along the lines of a "Surf Spot Review" article. In each episode, myself and some of my more adventurous mates will be scouting and documenting cool surf spots up and down the coast. It's more for us than you really, because we're the ones who will be having all the fun, and you only get to read about it.

But maybe it'll be the inspiration you need to get out there and try one of the hundreds of great breaks that can be found in close proximity to the city. Maybe we'll convince everyone to piss off to other places, so I can finally have New Pier all to myself. Here's hoping.

Share Surf
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, August 7, 2007 - 04:43

The ultimate in surf reporting has just arrived: ShareSurf.info is a website that allows communities of surfers and other wave-watchers to share pictures and reports instantly using their cellphone cameras. The incentive for sending in pics is that your business logo and details are displayed next to them. All usage of the site is free.

This concept is blazingly brilliant; the kind of idea that's completely obvious yet nobody else managed to think of it first. It's homegrown here in Durbs but clearly has high hopes of dominating the international market, as you can see on the "country" drop-down box which includes Hawaii, Australia and Brazil. I've given it a test whirl and here are some of my initial thoughts.

Golf For Underground Techno DJ's
Submitted by kliktrak on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 - 07:10

Kliktrak says Fore...er Four-on-the-floor beatsKliktrak says Fore...er Four-on-the-floor beatsSo golf is for yuppie-scum only ? Cutting those big deals on the fairways ?

Where the real boardroom decisions are made ?

Hear about a company who retrenches a whole division, and maybe its more to do with the boss shooting triple bogeys, than based on sound financial reasons... well maybe...

So what of this golfing lark ? Well a couple of underground dj's and producers have being going undercover [of darkness, cause its after work and in the evenings...] to skill-up at the driving range, in preparation for this last weekend's, big 9 hole round, up in the midlands.

Paintball / Speedball Durban North
Submitted by capdog on Sunday, October 22, 2006 - 19:09

What do you do when you need to get some solid teamwork in the workplace? Why, you take everyone down to the local paintball arena and shoot the bejeezus out of each other! Nothing strengthens work relationships quite like splattering multi colored paint over your co-workers.

Surf Ski
Submitted by capdog on Tuesday, June 27, 2006 - 07:02

Getting up at 6:30 AM is murder, especially on a Saturday morning after spending the previous night drinking nasty cheap beer. Everything is so dark and cold. You look outside the window, but you can't judge what the weather is going to be like because the sun hasn't risen yet. I had to get up though, any minute my mate was coming over with two surf skis and we were going for an early paddle.

WE WON!
Submitted by capdog on Monday, March 13, 2006 - 07:20

WE WON, WE WON, WE ROCK!! WOOOHOOO!!! The highest ranked team in the world set a record target of 434 runs, and despite anything those daft Auzzie commentators said about us choking, we pulled off the finest victory in arguably the best game of cricket ever played! I honestly thought it was all over after the Auzzies broke 300, but Gibbs and the boys showed absolute class and composure to make the most enthralling come-back ever. Those who called for Smith's head in the last series can kiss my ass! Now to give them a hiding in the Test series too!

Football!
Submitted by capdog on Thursday, March 9, 2006 - 11:22

Last night I met up with a mate for a quick drink down at the local pub. While we sat swopping funny stories and bitching like housewives about the latest scandals, two different European football matches were being aired, one on the big screen and the other on the smaller TV. I recognized Liverpool and Real Madrid were both playing, each team against some other European side with an unrecognizable acronym.
