Surfers spent Easter Sunday revelling in epic St Michael’s surf.
Scores of beachgoers gathered on a beautiful morning for the sunrise service, which culminated with several people being baptised in the tidal pool.
St Michael’s shone in all its splendor for the special day, with surfers being treated to excellent surf.
South Coast surfing legend Heather Clark was amongst those who spent the day at the beach.
“The service was very nice. There were tons of people and it was very joyous,” she told eHowzit.
“There were maybe 15 to 20 surfers that came and went and enjoyed the big surf. If this is the swell that we can expect for winter, I think we’re going to have a great winter.”
Clark wasn’t in the water as she’s recovering from a knee injury she sustained during a coaching session some three weeks ago.
“It’s frustrating, especially when there is good surf around. I had to pull out of a contest in East London and won’t be able to surf the next one in Durban and all my lessons is from the sideline.
“But I’m sure it won’t be too much longer till I am back in the surf. Maybe a week or two more, so it’s all good.”
