This past month has been pretty depressing. The Cape Doctor has not been offering the conditions we have been getting, due to the fact winter is coming and that the kite season has come to an end.
We haven’t been provided with much swell either this month, so catching decent waves has been a struggle as well. The next couple of months will all be about surfing and hopefully being able to fit in a couple kite sessions on the Northwester and the occasional South Easter. Nothing too exciting has happened this month, managed to have a couple kite sessions with light winds.
I had a super fun-full-day-ride at Blue Rock. I filmed some footage with my GoPro, and tried some new tricks. I also headed up the coast on a 5-day surf trip with some mates. We camped in Tietiesbaai. We surfed at Shelly Point; a right-hander point break that was a pretty fun session except all the kelp eventually becomes extremely annoying. When we weren’t surfing we were either diving or fishing, so it was, overall, an enthusing trip.
Sadly, I have injured my knee with, what appears to be, a slight tear in my MCL playing rugby. I have been out for two weeks now waiting to see whether it is going to get better otherwise I’m forced to get an MRI to see if there is any further damage. Best scenario is that I will need some rest to recover. Worst case, of course, is an op. I’ll keep you guys updated and any news concerning the injury. Talk soon!
