I'll see what the schedule holds for us. Maybe we can have a drink or I could convince you to come up to salt rock to show me the nice spots :p

Thanks

Yeh, I second that. Sheffield is a great spot and it is only about 10min from ballito. Lots of pools and lots of good stuff to see.;)

Sheffield will be fine :p How far out are the reefs / pools? We are going down as a group and are all qualified divers, so maybe a nice night dive might be on the table. Would be nice if there is a nice protected reef and we could do a shore entry with a short swim.
