Big Monday - South African Storm Photo Journal

by on Wednesday 21st January, 2009   51565 Views

With the forecast showing an all time swell heading for the coast it almost looked like something had gone wrong here at MSW, the charts just looked TOO perfect, a computer glitch maybe? As the swell started to roll in the buzz around this swell suggested not, we got straight on the phone to see if we could get our hands on something to show just how good it was, if the stories of mile long rides at 12ft+ J-Bay sounded unbelievable the photos tell it like it was…

The charts were showing this for 1 week straight
