Sunnies Fun - Surfing Ballito

Winter on the Ballito North Coast is special time. Every once in awhile you get to share days like this. What also makes this video special is the song written by my daughter on her ukulele. Song: No Plane Jane by Kai Coates I have also been enjoying my Twig Ultimate Stepup 6'3" by Grant 'Twiggy' Baker This day I was so surfed out from the week of waves I decided to use the extra vol in the 6'3 Twig to get into the draining sand spitting barrels. Best call ever, that board is a barrel slut. Hope you enjoy Coatesman
