Watch: Put the saddle on the Donkey
It's been a while between rides but last month Donkey Bay, AKA Skeleton Bay, brayed once more.
The forecast for the swell was anything but a slam dunk with an off axis storm track that was shifting radically between model runs.
Keen to tick that box, Shellharbour goofyfoot Mibs Meddows threw a few bucks at a Swellnet Traveller account, said a little prayer, and jetted off. He was joined on the ground by a handful of keen Capetonians...and that's about it.
Though the Donkey wasn't as big as when Koa Smith rode it last year it was far less crowded and the small crew got two days of waves, including, says Mibs, "the best wave of my life."
