|Mooi backpack and cap from Hurley. I'm a sucker for shopping bags too so I WILL find a use for it!|
Nevertheless, the man completed the interview and it was promptly sent off. 48 hours later Ian was deemed a well known Surf Photographer. I informed him I would be riding his coat tails all the way. Seeing as I have waited patiently in rusty cars for him all along the South African coast while he got the 'perfect' shot.
I am super proud of him, he's been working his skinny behind off for the better part of a decade making a name for himself as a humble surf photographer.
Anyway, after I read the interview I subscribed to Cape Town Surfer's emails so I could read more of their weekly profiles on surf industry professionals and icons and lo and behold I won their Hurley competition.
This is a small miracle for me as I rarely win anything, in previous posts I have mentioned winning stuff which you can read here but I've been super lucky this last month.
Yesterday I rocked up at the Hurley stall in the V&A Waterfront all smug face and proud to claim my prize. I picked this backpack because it's lined with this sweet bright blue on the inside (unfortunately Ian ran off before I could ask him to photograph that part).
It's perfect for a trip to Bali (hint hint - dad) and just trekking down to old Llandudno.
Thanks a MILLION to Shannon from Cape Town Surfers.
P.s I look lekker hosh in the cap.
