Whats Going Down?

Well whats happening??? Nothing too exciting!!

We were hoping the surf would be cranking this  morning but it was a little all over the place. But it was good to get a paddle in.
On the Dive front there is, has and looks like there wont be anything happening for some time!
The sea is just not happy!!!

This is natures answer to the MPA!! I can remeber the one year not diving for 3 months in a row! And so I am resorting to putting up pictures of Naked Sexy Chicks with Spearguns like last week!!

But I hear the dive down at the Hole in the Wall is not too bad and so we will be trekking down there for the Boarder Open to brave the sub 15deg water!! So we wont be doing Salties Club nite this Friday..... we will have to do something exciting during the month.

Other than that ...zip zero squat nadda!

North Coast Weekend Round Up.

Well the diving has been up to maggots the last few weeks and this weekend was no exception. We were hoping the south would clean it up, but it was still murky on Saturday morning.

On the flip side there was a good 3-4ft swell running and Saturday turned out to be a pearler and the boys spent hours in the water surfing. Most spots were cooking on the low tide between 9 and 11 am. I unfortunatly needed to work so missed out on all the good stuff.

There is good news tho ..... The Ultimate Spearfishing site is coming together really well. We got the forum up and working this weekend, it has over 50 categories and we have not finished with the freediving section yet. This means that it is the most organised spearfishing form in Africa and with exposure to over 600 of the mag subscribers I am sure it is going to be a very busy in no time.

One of the key features is that you can login with your Facebook login. This means you dont need to remember another login and it intergrates with your Facebook portfolio.
You will have your own photo galleries and apps just like in Facebook ... so it is a facebook for spearfishermen. AKA Spearbook!

Go have a look...  LOGIN and even go check out the forum.....

How else do you discribe the last few weeks! Unless you are one of those guys who dont mind diving muck and have lots of time on your hands, you probably have not dived a whole lot this month or two.

One would thing that with the southerly wind we would have gotten some clean water, but maybe we have had too many southerlies and no strong North Easts out at see to drive the Mozambique current?

Funny thing tho ...in a a week or so we will be moaning about the North Easts!

Anyway it looks like the Saturday might have some waves ...

Uneventful Diving Week

Its been a slow week on the coast, the sea has generally been green and mucky. Some snoek did come out early in the week, but that was in 2 - 3m vis! Not what I call exciting!!

I got a dive in yesterday arvo as the south started. The vis wasnt too bad but it was quiet. I mustsay it was good to get in the water again. Its been my 2nd or 3rd dive in 2 months!

This weekend looks like a surfing weekend, with 2.9m swells at 13 seconds. The swell looks south west so there is a possability that it misses us and goes out to sea. Which willl mean that we can maybe dive in the morning.

Other than that the local boys are getting together to paint the Lane wall. If you are keen to get involved pull in the lane after the rugby.

All good catch you later

Spearfishing Spearfishing and more Spearfishing!

As far a s Spearfishing goes it was something we used to do on the north coast many many moons ago!
Gee this murky upwelling we are experiencing is the pittys! Umhlanga and Zinkwazi have been cleaner than we are!!
I even got news back from a mate down at Port Edward who had been for a dive and got some fish.
I also got a call froma nother mate of big bait balls and possibly sardines off Toti and the water was diveable!
But back home it muck!! So much so some of the mates shot off to Sordwana to spearfish, and even tho it was quiet they did get one good fish.
Warren Blackmore 23kg Cuta off Sordwana

Other Spearfishing news is there is another Newsletter out from Ultimate Spearfishing check it out

We also did the Xfins lucky Draw for the guys who are in the running for the spearfishing blades.
Check It Out

Tonight is also Salty Divers Club Nite and we will be running through the new web page. Salty Divers
Its going to be fairly relaxed and the weather looks great for a braai.

Other than that there are some southerly winds predicted for this weekend which could end our streak of bad water ...hold thumbs!

Great White Sharks at Zinkwazi Beach

 4.2m Great White Shark at Zinkwazi Beach
The last thing you want to hear about is the big Great White Shark caught in the shark nets at Zinkwazi Beach.
What makes it even more scary and not a freak thing is that they caught another one today of 2.8m!!
Just the view to make you want to go swim!!
Apparently these are female sharks, they caught and released the 4.2m one the day before but it returned and died in the nets yesturday. The second one was smaller only 2.8m ...it would have to bite mybe twice to swollow you!!
I think that the cold upwelling of water we have been experiencing has some hand in this freak occurrence. Not that we dont get Great White Sharks here, just not 2 in 2 days.
Not so happy to be dangeling my toes tomorrow morning!!
