Anybody surf on the isle of Anglesey or would like to see some pics.
If so post up and will post some of the great swell back in October 04 from the old guru site.

Sorry for delay.
Well first of all what would the north wales crew give to get waves this big at hells at present nevermind Anglesey.
But in what as to be the worst winter i can recall in North Wales back in Oct there was some cracking swells coming up from the south west.
So what most of you may but these were anglesey and its rare its offshore and this big believe me.
Heres a few pics and lets hope the isle gets waves lke this again soon

So how big was it then? Nothing to give it any scale...

Looks about 2'+ but may be wildly off???

Have a look at pics i put up of cayton with same camara of people riding the waves that will give you some idea.
If thats what you call 1/2ft thats fair enough.

Had a look at the Cayton pictures, and I'll revise my original 2'+ guess - as mealy says, it looks about shoulder high. Good, fun little waves but certainly nothing spectacular. I used to live on Anglesey and it isn't that rare to have shoulder high waves and clean conditions!! Still, I guess I used to be able to make the most of it, unlike those unfortunate souls who had to travel from Manchester and used to miss all the good mid-week sessions...

Was talking last 12months.

People who travel from inland have a choice of different coasts/spots ie from Manchester they can head to The North east coast or North Wales and if they can get time off work ,they can get every bit as good a surf as any person based on the coast with plenty of choice to go at although they miss the dawnies but thats about it.
Also with so many charts about it no longer becomes nessasary to live near the coast making for better paid jobs in the city whilst still getting good surfs.

I think thats a debate for a different section of this board though and dont want to upset Ben with a full on in this photo section.
So to finish here is a picture of South Bay Scarborough from last november.

And Here North wales in Jan

Proving you can travel and have nice waves.

I agree and I dissagree (totally) - if you get my meaning (i.e. - I agree this isn't the place, but totally disagree that travelling surfers can get as good waves). I'll start a new topic under the Surfing Index.
