Ek wil net sê ons gaan gereeld na hierdie spot toe vir non-surfing doeleindes en so 2 weke terug toe was daar ñ paar ouens op die wave. Ek het begin kak praat met die een terwyl hy op suit en die cool ding was hy tune my toe: "Waar's jou board brah. kom in vir ñ surf saam met ons..." Ek het nie, want my gear was by die huis en eerlikwaar daai wave maak my bang...maar dit was nice om te sien die locals is nie tietkoppe nie.

jy ek stem saam met die ou met die weird naam dat localism suck, maar daars party waves wat net gecharge kan word deur die ouens wat weet hoe. Hulle is nie lus vir K@k van buitelanders nie. en ek rate ook dis die beste in die land, en daar behoort localism te wees daar, anders word dit 'n crowded shark island affair! Sick pic!

Ha-ha!! My name should also be on this freak show! This is an awesome country with a lot of waves for everyone who is willing to search and reseach a bit! Locals rule!! There are a lot of cooking and uncrowded waves to be found yet! Respect the locals and you will get waves wherever you are in SA.

This is currently the most publised wave in SA yes, its the cover of 6040 and the most commented photo on this site. its a damn good wave, but to make an arrogent claim like that tant is the best wave in SA is indicative of childish naivaty. Its all a matter of opinion. Now get over it. Please children. The west coast crew started this with threats of violence to anyone who disclosed its location, yet its the west coast crew who are constantly baiting the bodyboarding community with an endless supply of frame grabs and photos of Tant in all its glory. The in crowd are all escorted up there when in Cape Town they inturn go home and tell all their mates and so on and so on. Its all bullshit anyways. Tant is no more secret than Kalk Bay, you ous made sure of that. How many secret spots that are on par with tant or even better can be found in PE, EL, The kei, the South Coast, Mozambique. I want to see a pro contest like the shark island thing held at tant, with a big ass judging tower, movie set camping facilities and a live web cast to the whoe fudging world! How do you like them apples huh? We can do the DK contest either at ebay or heavan if its working. God gave us the ocean as a playground, share and share alike. This argument is lame, thanks hugh Grant for providing a lighter side to everything you and your moms furry coat make me lag. You okes take shit way way way way way way way way too personally. Chill hombres.

lol, ai this argument is getting out of hand already. Really no reason to fight, or argue for that matter. Thing is this spot is really, well in my opinion, probably one of the best spots S.A has to offer. oh and Marthinus, you right, no reason to fight. its really pointless. But ya, Elianderthehateful, its true what u say. I njoy bb just to get away from everything, to chillout with mates and what not... But remember, some oaks the sport more serious as jarred and daniel does. Full respect to em. they respect the locals and both have conquered SA champs... but ya, really pointless to argue on and on about this... cya oaks in the water...

agreead with marthinus..most hanus days(kief word usage marthinus!) for rupert,nice one bro,looks like you ous had fun this day..

Nathan,pretty bummed to say the least with your comment,why acuse me of being big headed?i never once testified to any of own ability,only said that i give respect where its due.

Guys,end of the day,this place will be fond by the masses(for want of a better word)and exploited..No two ways about it.i suppose South African bodyboarding needs it,doent mean its cool for the guys who first surfed it!oh well,sorry if my previous comment came across as self righteuos,wasnot intended

ooooh my............. Only on sixty40 that things could have escalated to such preposterous heights within only a few hours...

If you so called "locals" upload pics like these onto Sixty40, put them on the front cover of magazines as well as in movies then what the hell do you expect is gonna happen? People are obviously gonna want to surf it and they gonna find their way to it sooner or later...

Get over it, if you ous wanted to keep the spot to yourself you should never hav spilt the beans about this infamous "Tant" in the first place.

- oh ya, i heard via the grape vine, that apparently you "locals" wanna spill my boold for what i'v previously comment on this pic.. bahahahahhahaha.. Pang, Shaun - please elaborate.. I am acquainted with the both of you as well as many of the other west coast locals, so i donno what your beef is.. but i'f you ou's insist on a big brawl, just give me a place and time and myself along with the the onrus locals (aka the 316's) will be there...

But surely it will be possible for us to come to an understanding on a more civil manner…

i agree to its was just so funny when a local puts A wave on the site people flipout BUT when the wave appears on the cover of a mag there is no fuzzzz even though its not a local but ja i have a shit load of respect 4 daniel on the cover he is the most chiled guy on the planet!BUT THATS NOT THE POINT IF WE WANA PUT A WAVE OR 2 ON WE ARE GOING TO SO CHIL THE F&&% OUT ITS OVER NOW!!!!!!!!!!THIS ARGUMENT IS SO LAIM CANT BELIEVE ITS STILL GOING

23rd July 2007 09:54
this argument is really dumb.

i think what some people are trying to find out here is whether jarred gets respect because he rips (like nobody else it seems) or because of his attitude?

if i come and find this wave (dunno where it is just for the record) and paddle out, will i get shit vibes from the word go? will i have to flip the closeout section onto the dry reef?

or is it more that i will just sit in the wrong spot, chicken out of a few, leave the best waves to the pack, and hopefully snag a few insiders or something?

i think that's the issue - whether anyone can earn respect here, and how.
shaun/westcoastShaun Sobey
23rd July 2007 08:22
MR HUGH GRANT why the name buddy???anyways dude jarred is so right and he has a big amount of respect from us and more guys he has surfed this wave with us or without us many times so listen to him MR MODEL!!!so please respect the local boys?shot jarred put this guy in his place!!!!!!!!

All i'm saying is dont come to this spot and try tacking over.I don't care if ur Jeff Hubb!U go to any famous wave on this planet and HAP the locals kak,u wil get BIT.And last when i lookd,when u live close to the wave and u surf i alot, U R A LOCAL!
ElementreeGareth White
22nd July 2007 23:41
Ah this issue is so old...live and let live, i say.
The hype surrounding this spot will die off eventually...
It's too much of a mission to get there, requires skill in order to surf and is basically getting crowded out so okes who make the mission aren't getting waves.

I bodyboard for the love of it, to have fun and find serenity whilst in the water...i'm not too keen on crowds, bad vibes or nasty rocks that might crack my skull open. So although i know where this spot is i'm not gonna mission to go surf it at this point in time...too crowded, too many apparent bad vibes and i'm having a patch of bad luck so i don't feel like adding a skull fracture to the list...

Just chill okes, it's only a wave!!!
Maybe if i win the Non Existant Lotto i'll buy the spot and close it!!!...lol...just kidding.
ElianderthehatefulNico Boshoff
22nd July 2007 23:02
Well you see that's just the point!!! End of the day you're still just somebody who paddles out at a place and surfs there to have fun...you're not important because you do it...and nobody gives a shit about how many backflips and ARS's you landed this weekend...well at leats I don't! I care about how my friends are doing, how my gf is, what makes me happy. But I sure as shit don't care about whether or not "yo got some" at some insane break. I'll never surf this well, and I don't have the balls to surf anything bigger than 4 foot...does that now mean that I'm not a good person? Do I not deserve respect? Surfing is for most people a time to relax and get back in touch with who they are, because most of us lose our sole somewhere during the week at work! So the last thing I can care about is your insecurities about whether or not the world thinks you are the badassest bber in the water and therefore respects you by default. I just sometimes wonder if you "locals" ever get pissed off if someone in a foreign country tells you to get out of the water, or give you the evil eye simply because you're not from there??? Or do you just "understand" and paddle back to land, respecting them?

Housten,your attitude with wave riding is becoming unbearable!! Why do you always claim that you can rip any spot and not offend anyone, your a good oke bra, but that head of yours is getting a little big!! Rudy, I'm not gonna waste my time belittling a no-name such as yourself!!
ElianderthehatefulNico Boshoff
22nd July 2007 22:30
No offense guys, but this is getting retarded. I know it's not as simple to you as this, but who the hell does anyone think they are to say that because they live somewhere or surf a spot often that they're "locals" and deserve respect or else you get no waves??? Fuck off man!!! This isn't Nazi Germany and people can go wherever the hell they want! If somebody thinks they have what it takes to paddle out at this or any other wave of consequence, then so be it! You have absolutely no right to tell them they're not welcome and better give you some respect or they can't surf there??? You're a jock!!! nothing more, nothing less!!! Grow up and pull your head out of your ass...you'll see that you're a small speck on the face of the earth and your pettiness over something trivial like localism is purely a reflection of how small your point of reference in life is!!! Sure if somebody is being irresponsible or an a-hole, then fine...let him know this! But to just assume that since he isn't a "loca" he better watch it is pathetic! It's the ocean, not the last days on earth!!!
RudyRudy
22nd July 2007 22:16
true true what jarred says, a little respect will get you a long way. But this nathan oak seems like an idiot... would love to see paddle in and "get any wave you want" haha...
Jared HoustonJared Houston
22nd July 2007 20:29
just for the record,the local guys surf the wave well,they understand it and no you will not get whatever wave you want when(or if) you go there...and no im not local,never will be,but,i do get waves here..amazing what a little bit of respect does huh?

Sup bro's. Listen here Marthinus, the local of this spot aint fond of crowds, but we deal with it, like paddeling to the inside or just snaking the intruders. So if YOU what a wave u should start respecting the LOCALS, because no-body charge sicker and bigger that the locals! So bro just chill! O yeah, if u bring Pipi or Alex they will get waves, coz they respect the locals. Chez

Ah, my dearest mr. Sobey!! The pure and simple reason of our incredulous lack of respect is absolutely and solemnly based on our upbringings on this amazing website. As pertaining to the norm of conformic society, we have as to say "molded" into the models that we are now, destroying one's self esteem and cruelly attaining to barbaric means of insulting one another is now our pride and joy!! So in the spirit of good will, your a kook Sobey old boy!!

i c what u mean or spy dude. it must hav been great for those okes who surfed the spot uncrowded back in the day, the guys who discovered it.
but like alot of things this is the reality of it...
its there, its going 2 b ridden.people ar'nt gettin fewer, better yet who always makes the most noise when the subject of "growing the sport" and "if we had the suport that surfing had"... ?this is whats going to get us their.
its inevitible that all the sic spots are going 2b exposed...and great for those guys who got 2 surf it all by themselves.
so..do u hear what i'm saying? are u picking up what i'm putting down?
MarthinusMarthinus Botha
17th July 2007 19:26
Sick frame mark! ya it wont expose the location but it will make everyone that sees the pics like these in the mag or here on 60/40 super ampted to surf it! Like me and my 10 other buddies, i got a pretty good idea of were it is, shouldnt be that hard to find + im sure il be able to twist someone's arm if i cant find it... I think we gonna mission there this weekend.. hahaha - see the point that Spy is trying to make!!

....shoh man......didnt know I just exposed the spot!...

but ya....some of our sick secret spots even appears on the cover of the sick new mag....but its all right coz its better than some kak long beach schlop or something....


at least this wave is something people wanna see....and its not like ull be able to tell where this is by just looking at it....

For such a super duper secret spot, you okes love uploading images of it. Kinda defeats the purpose. I am guessing the lineup will get darn crowded soon (if it isnt already)
I surfed a certain pointbreak nearby on friday... was also a super duper secret spot a few years back and now there were 25 okes on the take off at 10am on a school day (well kinda -- for those of us who work)in the morning. Owell such is life i guess. I recon when you okes hit like 500 pics of this place you have to name it and give step by step instructions to the world on how to get there. hahhaha.. jokes... that is a joke.. you can laugh now.
