The Perfect Wave is coming to South Africa!

BY Innovation Films

 “In 1982, Ian McCormack was an adventurous 26-year-old, traveling the world in search of ‘the perfect wave’. One night, while diving for lobster on the small island of Mauritius, Ian was stung by five deadly box-jellyfish, the kinds that are among the most venomous creatures on Earth. By the time an ambulance had arrived, his body was completely paralyzed and necrosis had begun to set into his bone marrow. On route to the hospital, Ian began to see his life flash before him; he was an atheist at this stage in his life and wasn't sure what death would bring. After a vicious fight for his life, Ian was pronounced dead and sent to the local morgue. It was there that he had this extraordinary, actual-death experience. “(http://www.aglimpseofeternity.org)

The Perfect Wave is a full-length, dramatic, theatrical feature Film based on this true-life story of Ian McCormack. The Film was shot exquisitely in South Africa, Australia, Bali, Mauritius, New Zealand and Java under the direction of internationally renowned South African commercial director, Bruce Macdonald, and is produced by 7-time Emmy Award winning U.S. producer, S. Bryan Hickox.

The Film is set to release end of February 2014 across countries such as Australia, South Africa, the USA, and South America, to name but a few.

The Ian McCormack SA Tour is scheduled to cover the following areas:  

  • Cape Town: 12-14 February & 2 March
  • George: 15 February
  • Port Elizabeth 17- 18 February

JANUARY SHOWS RECORD WATER CONSUMPTION LEVELS

BY Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality recorded the highest water consumption levels in January 2014 at 312 Ml per day and expects the usage in February to reach an alarming 320 Ml per day as our peak consumption normally occurs in February.

Consumption levels in January 2013 were 291 Ml/day and 296 Ml/day in February 2013.

Residents are reminded to use water sparingly as we have frequent water shortages once every four years due to drought cycles occurring once every four years historically.

According to Statistics South Africa, we serve 1 152 114 residents in a geographical area covering 1959,02 square kilometers.

The levels of the major storage dams, supplying the Nelson Mandela Bay municipal area, are:

 

                          Capacity              Volume of water      

 

Kouga                  94,5%                  118 930 Ml            

Churchill               91,0%                    32 050

Impofu                 87,9%                    92 974

Loerie                  87,6%                      2 650

Groendal              100 %                    11 640
