Kim Kendle has nothing to say but surf.
I do other more responsible things but only 'cause I can't get away with just surfing. I've been doing it everywhere and anytime I can. I also like to write about it, but a lot of the time I have to write about topics which aren't surfing. Still, there is always retirement.

Lots of you will already know Durban is a great place for surfers. My personal favourite place to surf there is at New Pier. A fast hollow right, best at low tide when it’s really hollow, and a slightly smaller left, New Pier has a sandy bottom and sup…"
