A devastating fire swept through the Canal area of Cape St Francis on Sunday November 11th.
Strong winds made it impossible for fire fighters, residents and helpers to get the blaze under control and between 6pm and 2am 100 houses were affected. Up to 80 of these homes were burnt to the ground.
Thankfully there was no loss of life but for 80 or so homeowners all that is left of their houses is a couple of walls.
South African surfing’s legendary coach, mentor and elder Graham Hynes (83) could only watch as the fire took his house all his possessions and his memories.
As a surfing community it is up to us to ensure that Hynsie gets our love, support and financial assistance.
He is a special person and he needs our help so Surfing South Africa has set up a bank account to help him get his life back.
The details of this fund are available on Facebook.
