I was walking along one of the piers jutting out into the sea off Durban’s beach front. To my right coming from the Bluff was an enormous wave making its way towards me and the hundreds of others who were enjoying a Sunday afternoon stroll. I vividly remember the spray making rainbows as the wave grew from a couple metres to what seemed to be more than 20 metres.
People started to shout and run but I was rooted to the spot in fascination. After what seemed like ages I leapt over the side of the pier and silently sank to the ocean floor. Next to me was a woman who urged me to keep calm. Strangely we didn’t have any trouble breathing or talking under water.
