Bruce Donkin

“I started off bodyboarding back in 1997, when I was given my first board as a grom to mess around on. I fell in love with the sport and the lifestyle it comes with. Growing up in Durban we are blessed with world class waves all year round and have warm waters! My love for bodyboarding has kept me frothing after all these years. I like testing myself in all types of heavy conditions and pushing others in big surf. My favorite spot would have to be the world famous Cave Rock on the Bluff, as well as plenty other spots along our coastline.”
