Salty Hour takes to the skies

Travellers on Kulula this December might spot an article entitled “Beach, please!” by CN&CO’s Gabbi Rego in the in-flight magazine. The article is about surfing on Gonubie Beach in East London, specifically the Salty Hour concept introduced a couple of months ago by Jono Bruton and Tyrell Johnson of Dead Reckoning.

Salty Hour takes place on Gonubie Beach every Saturday from 4-5pm. It’s basically open-source surfing – providing boards and lessons to anyone who wants them. Jono, Tyrell and whoever else wants to pitch in, get together to provide help to newbie surfers or surfers who can’t afford boards – making sure that the waves are accessible to everyone.

In case you  miss it in Khuluma magazine, here’s Gabbi’s article (which also features Purple Group, one of the companies that sponsors surfboards for the Salty Hour initiative).
