DUNGEONS KICKS OFF 2019 WITH

THE CHANGING OF THE GUARD.

 

Words and picture by Grant Scholtz

“Its the first time that I’ve ever taken pics at Dungeons in January.”

Grant Scholtz, Dungeons’ resident lensman. 
“Everyone was charged and very excited to have this swell that just popped up.
It was not a long distance forecast and there was a feeling that it would be a little like a phantom swell that we had the week before.

“The kids were all over the swell. Matt Bromley and Josh Redman really owned the session with Frank Solomon, Pieter and Philip Nell also charging.

The older crew of Simon Lowe, Andrew Marr, Jake, Dougal Paterson and Jeremy Johnson were also catching waves.”

“But the wind backed off on Sunday and the swell started to arrive. It was a little bit woolly but waves were ridden in the 15 to 20 ft range and beyond occassionally.

There were a couple of sets that that caught everyone out and cleaned the line up out. Andrew Marr got caught and snapped his 11ft DVG on a close out set.”
