    The Mr Price SA open was held at Nahoon Reef in EL this weekend. Saturday was a bit of a washout as far as surf was concerned. I got down there at sparrow's fart on Sunday morning though, and was greated with a picture perfect dawn, and some good surf.

    I'm not a surfer, so the pic's are more of a general nature. Sorry Les.

    Wow... that's an awesome shot Les. It must have been taken off a boat? Makes sense actually..... a boat'll cost about half the price of some of the lenses that the photographers had there.

    taken by pierre tostee off a jetski... awsome photographer..

    our budding photographer Bruce (aka slummies) isnt too far off either.. hes been taking some hectic water shots..

    not to mention the big balls he has to swim out to get the water shots..

    crazy stuff man!!!

    well i predicted well for the billabong (Jordy) and the SA open (Greg) i got my cash on slater for the billabong pro in tahiti.. but jordy pulled a Judo air on the end section there yesterday landing it on the back of the wave and re-taking the drop, hes just toying with the place like its a 2ft shorebreak.. perhaps another major upset is on the cards..
