The First to Skim the Tip of Africa

28 March 2010 – First Skim Mission to Dias Beach, Cape Point

After talking about this for way too long, I’m stoked to say that it finally happened – the first (of hopefully many) Dias Beach skim missions.

This must be one of the most scenic & majestic beaches in the world & it’s right on our doorstep.

I’m 99% sure we were the first people to ever skim this spot, but hey maybe some bushmen kids skimmed it first…you never know.

We were blessed with sunshine, no wind & the swell was moderate to small – which was perfect for Dias, because let me tell you this place gets massive.

The massive surrounding cliffs give it an amphitheater-like feel. It’s definitely a trek to get down to this beach, but it is well worth the walk. This is definitely a perfect spot for a skim event & location for shooting a skim film.

This trip deserves a longer more detailed write up, but for now I will leave you with the few pics that I shot. Thanks to all for making the mission, I for sure had a rad time! We’ll have to do this again soon.

I’m thinking we should do a SkimZA Dias Meetup every couple of months – stoked!
