Wearing Lloyd’s gift with pride

Surfing Plett soccer star Merrick van der Gaast Purdon was proud to wear Lloyd Chapman’s wetsuit during last Wednesday’s paddle-out, and to do so on the Spowy Board belonging to his buddy Jordan Marais - one of the many youngsters who grew up surfing in Lloyd’s wake and who thought the world of the well-loved local, but who couldn’t make it back from various cities and towns around the world in time for his memorial because of international Covid-19 travel restrictions.
