Gangs of Ballet - Day Dream

Everybody, Everybody, tune in to 5fm this arvo at 4pm for the Fresh Drive with DJ Fresh and listen to Gangs of Ballet's latest single "Day Dream." I've had the delight in having a little sneak preview of the song and let me tell you, it's a cracker. Good times for South African musicians, we are so proud of you! 

Exciting News...

Hello friends and readers,
As per one of my previous posts, I am currently in the process of creating an entirely new blog that will take the place of Diary of a Daydreamer. The reason for this is that I feel that I personally have evolved beyond what this blog is able to keep up with, and I'm ready to hit the bloggersphere with a page that better reflects the person I have become, as I started Diary of a Daydreamer when I was just a teen with very limited knowledge of the online world. 
Although I will soon no longer be posting on here, I will not be deleting this blog, but rather having a referral URL to my new site, so all of those who would like to follow me over to my new page are most welcome to do so, and I would love your support. 
So, stay tuned for the launch of the my new blog. I am most excited about it and can't wait to disclose the new name, look and site URL to everybody.
But for now, I'm enjoying my last few posts on Diary of a Daydreamer, and stay tuned for more info regarding my new project.

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!

Congrats to Jordy and Julian!
