true - haha that vaalie was definately surfing the beach...he wouldnt know reef if it was engraved on his skull

the waves from jo-burg must be small - typical j-burg comment, you bloody fool you were probably "riding" or as you call it "surfing" the beachbreak with googles and flippers getting your dutch head drilled into the sand. Do you even know where the reef break is you retard? before making a rash comment about a spot which you clearly know nothing about you must understand the consequences, you bloody vaalie...im sure the shorebreak you were surfing was bad, because you were probably in your swimming pool farting.
