More Awesome Windsurfing Photographs by Charnell Timms

Send to Kindle

A few days ago we posted some awesome Windsurfing Photographs by Charnell Timms. She then told us she had even more fantastic images she would like to share with us. The majority of these images are taken at Sunset Beach which is the third best windsurfing spot in the world – first place goes to New Zealand and the runner up Hawaii. In many of the images in the gallery you can clearly see Robben Island in the backround of these.

The two images here are of Dave, he’s walking with his board into the water and the  next one of him with the mammoth swell behind him. Both of these were taken further up along the west coast inbetween Bloubergstrand and Melkbosstrand and the infamous Haakgat spot in Charnell’s words “the ocean was PUMPING this day“.

Tania Stephenson


Tania loves to cook and create magic in the kitchen for family and friends (or even just herself). Be it finding a new recipe or making a tried and tested dish from her recipe folder - the kitchen is her sanctuary. Find her hanging out with friends round the braai or curled up on the couch reading the latest crime drama. With a spring in her step and a song in her heart you’ll find her supporting local artists in theatre, music and dance – from a hip hop competition or the latest musical on stage at Artscape in Cape Town. Enjoying all things culture she likes to share her experiences and delights with those around her.
