The Regular Guy – Dark Horse Raffle

Raffle is DONE!

With season 4 of The Regular Guy kicking off shooting this week, with no presenting sponsor, we are trying to raise some funds for the production. With this in mind, I decided to raffle off the, Ferral Dark Horse Midlength from Season 3. This was one of the most beautiful surfboards I have ever seen and is definitely one of the most unique.

This board was a mind bender as can be witnessed in my review of it!

Win a Nixon Watch – The Regular Guy Season 1

Watch Season 1 of The Regular Guy

The concept was simple, create a surfboard review show that was relevant to the every day, normal surfer. At 42, weighing 110kg and being a good, but certainly not a pro surfer, I was the perfect candidate. If a board goes well for me, it will more than likely go well for you! Plus who else but Captain Kai knows the whole of the SA Surf Scene.

It is simple, in order to win the Nixon Tide Watch or one of two Hurricane Grips, you need to have watched Season 1, of the Regular Guy. Then you take the survey below (It will take 3 minutes) and make sure you follow both Captain Kai and Nixon on Instagram.

Season 1 of The Regular Guy was filmed over 10 days at Supertubes, Jbay and I tested six surfboards from some of SA’s finest board makers. The brief was simple, send a board that would make surfing big winter, swells easier for the average surfer. The surfboard must paddle really well, have a high performance level and, of course, suit a surfer weighing 110kg and 42 years old, myself.

If you have not watched all the episodes, here you go:

Season 1 The Regular Guy

Now, do the survey!

The survey will take 3-5 minutes and will help me improve Season 2, so that you, the viewer, get more out of the surfboard reviews. Make sure you follow Captain Kai and Nixon on Instagram! Winner announced 18 October 2020!

Create your own user feedback survey

Support the Shapers and Sponsors!

This whole series would not have been possible without the featured board makers and of course my sponsors. So please show them some love.

Accommodation was provided by AtSupers and we were styling in Pepper St, just meters from the paddle out at Supers (Also the best breakfasts of my life!)

We ate like kings thanks to Jbay’s home away from home, Ninas Real Food.

All my board bags, leashes and grips were supplied by Hurricane Surf.

All my fins were supplied by Scarfini.

I know the tides and sunrise and sunset every day thanks to my Nixon Tide Pro.

The six surfboards were from:

Channel Islands, Twig Surfboards, Dutchie Surf Designs, Gonzo Shapes, SMTH Shapes and Mat Surfboards.

Get to surf with your Celebrity for a great cause

On the 10th September 2016, Surf Emporium Muizenberg will be hosting a Celebrity Surf Day at Muizenberg beach in Cape Town where all funds raised will go to Missing Children South Africa (MCSA). The Celebrity Surf Day will contribute towards the annual fundraising for MCSA and aims to raise at least R50 000 in support of its growing profile. The Celebrity Surf Day will be raising funds for MCSA in three ways: 1) allowing people to partake in a silent bid for a surf lesson with their favourite South African celebrity. 2) public participation in the online memorabilia auction and 3) sponsoring a child from Waves for Change Surf Therapy programme, affording them the opportunity to learn to surf with their favourite celebrity.

Celebrities that have pledged their time include Dr Michael Mol, Dale Steyn, Nik Rabinowitz, Roxy Davis, Deon Bing, Dr Helgo Schomer and Miss South Africa 2nd Princess, Tayla Skye Robinson. Surf Emporium will be providing surfboards and wetsuits as well as their warm welcoming facilities on the day. “The cool part of the diverse group of celebrities is that they appeal to a diverse audience so that people from all backgrounds can bid on the celebrity that best resonates with them.” says Roxy Davis, 8 times South African Surfing Champion and founder of Surf Emporium.

The shocking reality is that a child goes missing every five hours in South Africa, according to figures released by the South African Police Service Missing Persons Bureau for 2013. This adds up to a total of 1697 children. Fortunately, according to Missing Children South Africa’s statistics, 77% of children are found. Sadly, this still leaves us with at least 23% of the children not being located. “This event will not only boost our funds but it will help us educate parents and children about the shocking statistics” says Rose Mac Kinnon, National Coordinator of MCSA.

The online auction will include limited edition memorabilia such as; the surfboard of Julian Wilson, currently ranked 9th on the Championship Tour, provided by Mr Colin Fitch, Regional Operations Manager at The World Surf League. As well as Dale Steyn’s Protea sports top signed by the Protea team and so much more.

MCSA is a non-profit organisation that aids the South African Police Services in locating missing persons across the country through awareness campaigns. Silent bidding will be open at 7am on Thursday 18th of August until 7pm on Sunday 28th August 2016. Winning bids will be announced on the evening of 28th of August 2016. Bidding is unlimited, so bid as many times as you wish and remember to keep an eye on the website for updates.

For more information visit or visit Surf Emporium’s Facebook page or contact Lauren Twiss on or call 0843699259. Find your balance to save our children.
