Billabong Pro Jeffreys Bay 2012 (Part 1)

Every year I take a trip up to Jeffreys Bay to watch (and shoot) the Billabong Pro. This year was exceptionally good. The waves delivered for almost the entire contest period and some phenomenal surfing went down along the perfect walls & barrels that Supertubes was offering. I've got quite a few pics to share so here is part 1.

Tand Invitational Bodyboarding Contest 2012

I haven't shot much bodyboarding, but if there was one event I wasn't going to miss it was this one - the Tand Invitational. If the photos from last year were anything to go by, we were in for a day of some insane riding... and that's exactly what we got. The contest takes place on a slab (a shallow reef / rock shelf) up the West Coast; the spot is really beautiful - raw, wild and undisturbed. The waves were in the 6-8ft range, maybe even bigger. This year's winner was Jared Houston, who took away the grand prize of R20 000. For more info on the contest visit the IBA World Tour website here.
