South Africa – Jeffreys Bay (2 Comments)

Il padre di tutti gli sport a scivolamento trasversale su tavola: IL SURF!

Come dico nel video, posto mitico, Jeffreys Bay, Supertubes, spero che Danysurf veda questo post, Selva se lo senti diglielo ok?

Le onde che si arrotolano a 20 metri dagli scogli sono semplicemente perfette, ed infatti si dice che l’onda destra di Supertubes sia la più perfetta al mondo. Un paradiso per chi surfa col sinistro avanti, cioè i regulars.

Nel video surfa anche Plinio França, il ragazzo brasiliano che era nel mio stesso backpackers, che trovate in una sequenza fotografica sul mio blog

Muta integrale perchè è inverno e l’acqua è a 20°C, ma giuro che se non ci fosse stato vento mi sarei tuffato in shorts. Si stava benissimo in spiaggia.

Godetevi il video e la bellezza dell’Oceano Indiano e le coste del Sud Africa. Magnifico paese, rainbow nation a tutti gli effetti.


The father of all sports based on sideways gliding on boards of all kinds: THE SURF!

The waves at Supertubes, Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, are among the most perfect on this planet. Some say “the” most perfect. Only 20 to 30 meters at any times separate you from the surfers. A guy yelled something on the beach, and I could see all the surfers turn their and look toward us. This to give you an idea of how close you are to the action, in case the images of my video aren’t enough.

In the video I stress that in one day, I descended from the 3000 m above sea level of Tiffindell, to the sea, the Mighty Indian Ocean. This is possible only in South Africa, and a bunch of other nations. Amazing.

Didn’t try surfing this time, I’ll be doing it in Fiji if the ocean is forgiving. Starting at Supertubes, or anywhere else in Jeffreys Bay, is like starting to snowboard on the Himalayas…you don’t do that 🙂

Enjoy the beauty of Jeffreys Bay, and South Africa.
