WORDS AND IMAGES: Ydwer van der Heide

We hesitated, thinking that maybe we were better off in South Africa as there still wasn’t much Coronavirus news in Cape Town. We finally decided to head home when KLM announced that their last flight would take-off before the end of the week.

Lighthouses on top of the pier (see the Winter issue’s cover below), kite colours contrasting perfectly with the background and enthralled onlookers in the foreground, it was perfect big air scenery. Kevin and Lasse took turns to pull loops while my lens ground with sand as I pulled focus, but I didn’t care. The boys came in beaming ear to ear and I brushed a beach worth of sand from my beard. To hell with the elbows, it was high fives time!
