Low flying traffic after dark along Durban's Golden Mile.
Durbans North Beach played host to Jordy Smith and his Redbull NightShift.
Under a glowing sky above the floodlit eyes of his home fans Jordy heads out for his first shift of the night.
Just when things were getting good the power tripped and Jordy was left to land one of the evenings better airs in the dark.
Power was restored and Jordy waited to have another go.
The Redbull ski driven by Jason Ribbink gave those surfing in the dark a good slingshot into the waves.
Jordy and his patented SuperMan.
Another proper air from Jordy.
Jordy had his friends around for the fun and Wok was out doing his thing.
No sun, no problem, turn the spots on.
Rudy Palmboom Jnr.
Once the show was over everyone headed back to the beach for the nights musical festivities.
Got something to say? Then leave a comment!

your item says: "There used to be a time that July cooked in Durban, unfortunately it seems that with the lengthening of the South Pier off the DBN harbour, that time is over"
Can you say where you got this information from? That the South Breakwater was changed?
Please get back to me, Allen.

@Allen , too true that , the ignoramus's at thebomb obviously don't know the difference between the 2 harbour entrance piers , I've heard them spinning this yarn a few times - South pier is still the same length , North pier (the pier on the vetch's beach side) was moved northwards to accommodate the widening of the harbour mouth and extended to relatively match the length of the South Pier . North Pier isn't as long as the South Pier becuase it is on the shipping approach side of the entrance. theBomb and their Fire stories.... wot kind bru!?

@theBomb @CleverOne Guys, I was the officer in charge of the survey (amongst other duties) at the DHEW project. I know a lot of the background, history and what actually happened here. This is your opportunity to find out what really happened. Been in Durban since 1965, surfed since 1955! You may still contact me, Allen.
