The Supertubes Foundation

The most famous break at J-Bay is Supertubes. Thought to be unsurfable prior to the short board revolution of the 1970’s, it is a scary fast shallow wave that produces some of the most awe-inspiring waves, rides and posters known to surfing. Obviuosly, we’re not allowed to surf there.

 

Instead we got to volunteer with the Supertubes Foundation, an organization dedicated to protecting the native flora and fauna around Supertubes. Today was mostly flora, save for the few snails and ants we discovered. We spent the afternoon gardening. Or, as I like to think of it, defending South Africa’s native species from invasive plants that cause a ruckus in the circle of life. Pulling weeds has never looked so good.
