Spearing Report KZN weekly by Jason Heyne

The diving conditions have been well below average due to Cyclone Dineo’s ripple effect on our weather. Every river on the north and south coast came down in flood. Saturday morning a light offshore blows with smaller 1.3m swell running and later in the day a moderate southwest blows. Sunday the southwest continues to blow with the swell running at 2m. Saturday conditions are right early morning but finding viz is going to be a problem. As always dive safe and straight spears

New IGFA Rules

Radical new IGFA rules

Radical new IGFA rules The new IGFA rules published recently include some long overdue and revolutionary amendments.

Umzumbe Backpacker options

Umzumbe Backpacker options The good old days of living out of a camper van, or in a tent…carpark to carpark…in the sixties, gave us the dream in the first place. Those days are long gone now, and all we have to compensate for the lost nostalgia is the backpacker scene. Umzumbe back in those olden days was […]

Cyclone Dineo: Message from Lalaland in Tofo, Inhambane

Cyclone Dineo: Message from Lalaland in Tofo, Inhambane Some of you may know that southern Mozambique just sustained a direct hit from Severe Tropical Cyclone Dineo.

Cyclone Dineo damage count

Cyclone Dineo damage count The Cyclone Dineo damage count is really bad for the local population, many of whom live in reed and grass houses. And on exposed islands and wetlands. The lodge owners and better off population in stronger houses held out far better. The technique of building rooves to go, on top of sturdy […]
