Mr Price Pro Ballito

This past week I got to work at the Mr Price Pro Ballito, an event I absolutely love as not only do I adore the sport of surfing, but the event takes place in my neck of the woods, practically in my back yard.
It was so divine to be a part of the event buzz and hear all the foreign accents meandering around the beaches and taking to the Ballito waves. Apart from the final day, the weather wasn't the greatest, but despite that, the crowds flocked to the beach to show their support. Good form Ballito, good form. 
The event was flippin' amazing, and I was so proud of our Saffa surfers Dylan Lightfoot, Beyrick de Vries and Jordy Smith for surfing outstandingly well. In the end, it was Jordy Smith (SA) and Julian Wilson (Aus) that went head-to-head in the final, and my God, I have never seen surfing like that in a final in my life. The hugest airs were being punted and landed, turns were being smashed and perfect 10 waves were being ridden. It was an edge-of-your-seat-bite-your-nails kind of 30 minutes as we supported our local man Jordy who ended up placing second to Julian Wilson who took out a well deserved win of the event. 
The prize-giving ceremony was loads of fun and I got to stand under some champagne showers as the boys celebrated their results. Such a beautiful day watching the world's best do their thing on Ballito waves. I already can't wait for next year!
