Unless you're in the forces and then you can get indulgence flights for about £15 each way. Fuck going down there though it is very cold and full of RAF arse bandits :lol:

I read report a few years ago in the RAF's surf magazine and it sounded very good, apart from the minefields. The ascensions also looks none too shabby and also a cheap indulgence flight away.

my old man was there just after the conflict too. He was an RAF arse bandit though :)
We nearly went to live for 9 months there as a family, bit gutted that didn't happen.

Not quite workign but you see the potential. On the rigth direction and witha bit of luck it links up from outside the point right down to the pier. Some reckon this can get longer than Chicama. Didnt have it longer than 200m when i was there but the size and power was ridiculous off the swell we were getting.



looks like there is another point just up the coast.

Its the Heard and McDonald Islands. A territory of Australia apparently. The South and South Eastern Coasts look like they get hit with big swells. One hell of a boast trip to get there though!

How do I make a map of my patrol route using google earth? I drive a patrol route for a private security company and have about thirty apartment buildings and business I check nightly. I want to use Google Earth to make a map of all my accounts. I just don't know how to to do it. Is there a way to make a new layer and add the addresses or what? I'm just not very competent with the program and could use some advice on the most efficient way to do this.

we do an xml export of some sort to goodle earth and it drops all our customers in and also flags if they have a visit by way of coloured pins. The file created is a kml file. I am sure you could then between them. Ben could probably create an export from MSW and drop dark stars onto google earth ;)

Below is our xml/kml for two test companies - you probably need simpler than this. - I have cut and pasted it out of notepad.
