Gotta love our Pier

If you’ve been to Port Elizabeth you’ll probably know that The Pier at Hobie Beach is one of our favorite things.

Local Port Elizabeth Newspaper The Herald made a lovely video about the city’s Shark Rock Pier recently. Give it a view and remember not to miss a walk on the pier next time you’re in Port Elizabeth.

Well done to every single Ironman and Ironlady!!
