9th July 08

Date: 9th July 08
Location: Jeffreys Bay, South Africa
Weather: Windy as hell, clear blue skies and colder. 18°c
Status: Feeling really good and happy!

Woke up to a perfect day with blue skies and a light wind replacing the grey of yesterday.

As the morning went on the wind picked up to gale force and turned offshore, leaving 8-10ft perfect surf for the start of the Billabong Pro so after Alex had had her first surf lesson, her, Bre and I headed down the coast to the comp spot and sat for a while photographing and watching in awe as the top surfers in the world ripped the waves to shreds!

Left Jeffreys Bay around 2pm and headed west along the coast to Storms River, the location of the worlds highest bungy jump….all 210m’s of it! A three hour drive and we were there, decided to stay at Dijembe Backpackers, checked in and headed down the coast for sundown to the location of the bridge where the jump takes place.

Shit I hate heights and this is one hell of a bridge!! Tomorrow when we get back here I’ll do it…..but it’ll take a whole load of balls and determination to pull it off!

Fish for dinner, chats round the fire and bed.

End of day location: Storms River, South Africa
Distance covered: 156kms
