I’ve always loved this country and feel so at home. The door of my workshop looks out on a section of Cape Point Nature Reserve and behind my backdoor is wild mountain and fynbos.
The last few days the baboons have been on the hunt for food and have had to be chased off – a reminder of wild nature on our doorstep.
And although the surf is close, I’m managing to be remarkably productive with plenty of made-to-order boards being built, and courses running regularly over the last few months.
Above are three course participants from the last three months. Andrew, Tony and Ant. They built stunning boards.
The shots below are of bodysurfing hand planes – I love using up my offcuts to make these items. They’re now for sale and shipping anywhere in South Africa is free.
Lastly, I’m also making wooden paddles. We have a limited number in stock and also make to order.
