Fans of the Captain Kai’s World show on, 2 Oceans Vibe Radio, have been badgering me to start up the show again. With the current Corona Lockdown, I thought it was the perfect time to start chatting with some of the world’s best action sports athletes again. So, welcome to #TheLockdown with Captain Kai. The first guest, Steven Sawyer.
Episode 1 – Steven Sawyer
I could not think of a better person for my first Episode than good friend and World Longboarding Champion, Steven Sawyer. One of the most talented surfers I know, he equally rips on a shortboard or longboard. Growing up in Jbay with a famous shaper as a Dad, he has been blessed with crazy talent both on the board and when making them, plus he is an exceptional musical talent. Hope you enjoy the first Episode.
Help Steven Sawyer & friends support the #letsFeedJbay Initiative
Help Steezy and the Jbay Pro Surfers raise money to feed the local community. Unfortunately, the current 35 day lockdown in South Africa has forced all non-essential businesses into closure and left thousands of wage earning employees in Jbay without any income.Please help us raise money that can go towards purchasing food and distributing it to those most in need.
Coming up next week I chat with Bmx superstar, Kevin Peraza, from the States. This guy is at the forefront of Bmx and rides for Monster Energy, Vans and Mangoose Bmx. He would have been in South Africa last month for Ultimate X, if not for the Lockdown.

I have been waiting with baited breath for this video, much like I waited for a long time to be able to get to this wildly popular event. The Cobbles Classic brings us back to a time where riding waves was all about style, flow and most importantly the love of riding waves. Single fin logs only, no leashes and a focus on old school longboard riding make it a very unique event. I had a great time, Surfed a few heats and basked in the collective love of an amazing time. Enjoy the video…
Steven Steezy Sawyer is an incredibly talented young guy. Whether strumming the strings with making soulful tunes, winning national longboard titles or coming up against the best in the world at the Jbay Open, he always impresses. He is one of my favorite guys to watch on the longboard and now he is learning the craft of making surfboards from his legend, old man, Des Sawyer. Have a watch, get to know Steezy better and help a young gun out by sharing this post!
This is a short clip of Steezy, jamming music, shaping boards, surfing and talking about 2016’s festivities.

As a surfer we all know our history and that of the Hawaiian Islands and how the royalty of that island change started surfing. I think it is safe to say that we have all imagined meeting an Hawaiian princess and watching her magically transform the waves into a wonderland of the imagination. The amazing thing, is that Hawaiian Princess is real and her name is, Kelia Moniz. Now this may just be my recent induction into the world of Longboarding, but how amazing is this video and how graceful does Kelia look in the water?
Kelia ‘Sister’ Moniz is the epitome of effortless style and grace. Our favorite lady logger had mastered the art of hanging ten at an early age. With equal parts happiness and humility, the multi-talented Hawaiian has become one of the most versatile surfers, notching up back to back 2012 and 2013 World Titles.
