Surfing in Durban!

We are supposed to be in summer now...but we recently had the coldest day of the!

With December fast approaching, we are used to temperatures of 30 degrees+ (Celcius), but to give you an idea, here is a screenshot of the expected weather forecast on my phone, showing expected temperatures from Today (Thursday) until Tuesday, November 14.


On Saturday, October 24, we had a nice, pleasant, sunny day though. So, we headed out for a walk on the beach.

We don't go to the main beaches in Durban due to all the crowds, but we were in the area and decided to see if it would be worth going for a walk.

We had a pleasant surprise. Almost in the middle of the Golden Mile, just below "The Bay of Plenty" beach, it was reasonably quiet and we noticed some surfers having fun in the surf just below one of the piers.

I decided to get some photos.


Looking out over the beach and the ocean, standing next to the pier. The surfers were on the other side of the pier.


Going onto the pier...


Walking onto the pier, the surfers were in the water below us, on the left side of the pier.


While another surfer passed through under the next wave in the next photo below (you can still see his one foot), this guy decided that that was the wave for him...


He had a nice ride...


The waves weren't all that big, but it was good enough to have some good fun.


Watch out! Traffic ahead...LOL!


His last moment on the board...


While these two guys were returning to the deeper water again, this youngster decided it was time to choose his wave...


While he was well on his way...


...his friend decided to join him on the same wave.


And with that, after spending some time, watching the surfers, we come to the end of today's post.

Thank you for reading my post! I do appreciate it!


Surfing is one of those skills that I always wanted to learn, but never did! Great surfer shots, @jacoalberts! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

It seems like we're in the same boat there...LOL! And when we moved down to the coast, I was especially fascinated by kite surfing...but like you, I never got around to doing it...

Thank you for the positive feedback, @tydynrain! I do appreciate it!

Well, it's great to share this lovely boat with you, @jacoalberts! I've never heard of kite surfing! Well, as the saying goes,it's never to late to learn something new!

You're very welcome, certainly! 😁🙏💚✨🤙

Here is a link to an article about kite surfing in South Africa...with some images...

Have a great day, @tydynrain👍!

Oh, cool! Thank you for that, @jacoalberts! I appreciate it! Have a fantabulous Friday! 😁🙏💚✨🤙

You're welcome, @tydynrain👍! I hope you're having a great weekend!

Thank you so much, @jacoalberts! I appreciate that! May your new week be glorious! 😁🙏💚✨🤙

Surfing is probably dangerous. As soon as people are not afraid to do it.

You are probably right. I have heard of some bad surfing guys hitting the rocks, shark attacks, etc. But so are there many activities that have risks of their own. So, I suppose it depends on who you talk to... I'm sure the majority of surfers feel it is safe, as long as you are responsible.

Thank you for stopping by and for sharing your thoughts. I do appreciate it!

I agree with you. A lot depends on a person's preparedness and on his responsibility. In general, you can get injured in a game of table tennis))

Nice to see people going back into the water, our water along Warner Beach no go with sewage once again.

Beach looks lovely perhaps being cleaned in preparation for December holidays, if anyone comes down this way.


Yes, it was nice to see these guys in the water. It is sad to hear what you say about the water along Warner Beach though.

It's good to hear the beach looks lovely, but I sincerely hope they will be able to have it open for swimming too in time for the December holidays...

Cleaning is ongoing throughout the towns down here, sadly municipality is the missing cog in the wheel Sanitation Update


Yes, that sounds normal...

Thank you for the link to the video about the Sanitation Update!


Keep working together the town is beginning to look a little better than it did two years ago.

It is great when people can work together as a team!

Moving forward one day at a time, have an amazing day!
