Hope this is the right place to post this.

My son is pretty used to people not from his home break taking all the waves, he puts up with it to a point, then either surfs around, or drops in and surfs circles around them.

The other day at J-Bay testing a board at point, he paddled out into the lineup, there was a clean break, He caught some awesome waves - compared to his home break - Buffs - Knysna, no work involved.

I went out with him to make sure all ok, then went back to the beach to film. But waited and waited.

He was being blocked from catching. And even got pushed off a wave - see pic and given words. By surfers who were not even good. He's only 9

What turned out from a great surf tuned into a terrible surf, and he left the water disillusioned. But stronger for it.

We have had great experiences like guys offering him to surf the wave with them at Vic Bay during the 2nd part of superstorm, some big waves rolling in at Vic Bay.

You are responsible for the photos and videos you submit to Shot Bru. If you didn’t take the shot yourself, or make the video, get permission from the owner first. If you’ve got your eyes on a Shot Bru prize or a spot in the pages of the main mag, please upload to Shot Bru before sending your photos on Facebook and other surfing websites cyber rounds. Fresh photos get priority for prizes and print. Finally, by loading image(s) onto Shot Bru you are granting Zigzag permission to feature your image(s) in the magazine, on the website and across our social media platforms free of charge.

Waveski, SUP, etc shots regularly get deleted due to a technical glitch. This glitch does not seem to affect surfing shots, which shotbru.co.za was designed for. We are having our developer look into the problem.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are posting a pic of a secret / semi-secret spot or a sensitive location, DO NOT say where it is. Shot Bru is for sharing photos and stoke. Not for exposing secret spots. The administrator reserves the right to change the description or nuke the shot if you don’t comply.

If you are going to upload photos of secret or very sensitive surf spots. Be vague about the location, or better yet flat out lie. We're okay with either.
