Flashback: Brucifire and The Roosta surfing the Kei
Flashback: Brucifire and The Roosta surfing the Kei. This clip from the movie Shaloha.
A good 10 years back, Roosta had just gotten quite a nice deal going with a corporate bunch making baggies and shorts and things, when we decided to kidnap Brucifire and take him north, to make a manovie, in good old Mozambique.
We had a long way to go, so decided that a few days in the good old Transkei might be needed, to fuel us with waves, before hitting that two-day drive to Pomene. We tried some acting on the way – Bruce got some great lines in…
But it’s all about the surfing and this session depicts Brucifires gung ho attitude as hollow waves unloaded harshly on a shallow bar, at a secret spot near St. Nowhere. Roosta does a great job of mimicking Bruces outlandish but flowing style of surfing, on one or two of the steep drops.
And stick it out for some ‘big as it can get’, Saint Mikes…with a bunch of kamikaze’s on it, including our very own Heather Clarke and Louis Wolmarans! And lots of commentary from the peanut gallery. Bruce on camera – thanks Bruce!
