We then spent about an hour or so in the water taking turns riding in the waves. Jess and I got the hang pretty quick and managed to ride some of the bigger ones in all the way to shore. Amy, however, was unlucky and needs to try again next time. Sorry Amy! But it was the ocean, not you. We plan to get ...

Flying to Durban gave a view of a green and soft country with beautiful farms and rolling hills I can see why when the Europeans arrived that they wanted it all.
