“It always amazes me that even with a Prime event in town you can still surf really good waves just a stone’s-throw from the comp site with less than 10 people out,” says Ryan Miller, currently in Durban for the Mr Price Pro. Stab agrees. You’d think it’d be tough to find seclusion, but the magnetism of a humming contest site usually proves too alluring for most. A fact which found Damo, Ryan and few others surfing this “little runner right off a headland, right next to the comp in which 96 of the best surfers are entered, with a heck-ton of groms running around the beach. The thing breaks off a headland and runs for 100 meters. With only eight people out it looks like just about the most dreamy little right you have ever seen.”
