Whispers II Crew Profile
Pieter ´Pete´ Willem de Wit
Joined Spring 2021
Since 2012 Piet has been actively partaking in the evolution of the Cape Town Big Wave Association. With experience in surf lifesaving with Life Saving South Africa, Piet is a Captain that takes water safety and risk assessment very seriously.
Since being a captain, Piet has sailed a wide variety of sailing vessels, including Sailing Vessel KIRRA, for an extensive sailing learning experience. Learning about old sailing methods like steering with a manual sheet to a tiller pulley system and only ever using the wind and currents as propulsion with minimum electronics and combustion drive on board was a great technical experience for Piet. Preparing him for any unforeseen circumstances while out on the water.
Piet sailed from Ireland to the Azores, Portugal, as engineer onboard a Bruce Roberts adventure boat en route to further travels a collision with a humpback whale caused severe damage. Piet had his work cut out for him, but he successfully repaired the damage and spent three months doing mechanical and general repairs.
Born and raised in South Africa, Piet was fortunate to be exposed to numerous industries. He worked four full seasons in the bustling film industry of Cape Town as a props coordinator working with international and local teams and directors and preparing him for the numerous operations and logistical demands as a boat captain.
Piet´s Big Wave Surf career is his true passion and became a reality in 2018 as he got his first global nomination and made the shortlist of top 10 biggest waves paddled into for 2018/2019.
Piet´s hobbies include surfing, diving, kite surfing, and playing a little guitar around the campfire.
