• Short Summary

    A visit to the beach holiday resort of Durban, South Africa.

  • Description

    Durban, South Africa.

    Durban is a renowned holiday resort. L/S crowded beach where a beauty pageant is taking place, - girls in bikinis walk along a catwalk, with onlookers sitting in deck chairs. The winner of Miss Durban competition kisses the compere. There is a cutaway shot to four well built men - 1960's hunks!

    There are people trampolining at the beach, sand surfing, and sailing boats. At the beach young men surf the big waves. Tourists walk along the front and are taken for a ride in rickshaws pulled by people in traditional ceremonial African dress with huge horned and decorated head-dresses. Look quite scary.
