Alrite lads,I'm Tom and I've been surfing 2 years now. Born on the east coast of Ireland and lived there for 13 years,didn't see surfable waves until I was 15 I'd say :lol: Live in Cork now and was probably the best decision I've ever made to take it up.

hey everyone

just very new here still thought I'd come and say hi.

I am Ellyana 28 years, surfer girl ever since I could walk. Originally from Germany, but lived in Oahu, France and California before. Back in Germany since 2 years and hating it like hell, cause I am miles away from the sea. Usually off to Cornwall for surfing also tried the dutch coast a few times.
Busy in IT as seem most of the people here and got a 9 year old boy who is just as much a surfer as I am.
Currently riding a 6'4" SurfBetty and yes guys I am proud if it.....

ehm and sexual preference, seems like it is a must :P ...I agree with the saying I prefer having sex over not having sex.

Recovering from a broken neck I gave myself last September on Oahu, Thank God I can still surf. oh I guess walking is nice too, just less important.

New to the forum but old to MSW,

21 yr old female, live in somerset, surfed since i was 15 i guess. studied oceanography and work in hydrography so the sea is my life these days. Mostly hit N Devon as a closest break, get up there few times a week, and head further west if i got time on the weekends.

Ride an 8'4 epoxy longboard and love it, though dont spend enough time on the nose :)

also getting into surf photography, feel free to check out my blog www.victoriajesmaine.blogspot.com (nothing like a bit of shameless advertising). I also do surf art that i sell locally, if you want a commissioned piece or something that already exists give me a tinkle, my prices aren't bad.

I'll be in the water most days with either the board or fins and camera. if you want some shots just shout!

Vicky

Hi all,

New to the site and surfing! Have bodyboarded for a couple of months now but have now decided that I wish to learn to surf too.

I am male and am 36 years old, I live in Yeovil, Somerset and have recently been and tasted some of Cornwalls great beaches. I have bodyboarded at Saunton a couple of times but transport is always an issue, mainly the costs of travel. I intend to learn as much as I can prior to purchasing a surfboard but knowing me, that will be sooner, rather than later!!

Cheers

Hey I've heard his named mentioned around before, might've ridden with him a few times. He's always in the shop or close by.
I'm pretty close, about 45 minutes from Cannon. Small world.

Hey guys... I'm Mia, mid 20's middle of the country dweller (nowhere near ANY beaches) so my opportunities to surf are few and far between! Love to ride my longboard when I get chance and I joined this forum because chatting to surfers doesn't really happen much inland. Be nice to find some friendly faces to make me jealous of their days by the beach... and I could learn some new tips for when I do reach the shores! x

Well here goes, in for a penny in for a pound.

Name's Phil, I'm from Derby, right in the middle of England, and I don't surf, so that's a good start :lol:

We've been to Newquay the last 3 summers, my boy who's now 12, had a couple of lessons at the surf school just up the hill from Fistral the first time and enjoyed it, got up on the board quite well, last year went out a few days and smashed it on the last day at Perranporth, catching nearly every wave on the Friday afternoon. This year he was out every day for a week, 5 hours at a time, couldn't get him out of the water.

So that's it, fish boy spurned from a bloke who's barely dipped his toe in the ripples at Cleethorpes, and it looks like we're into the surf scene now.

I must admit I love watching you guys, and I love the whole Newquay/surf bus laid back scene. I also enjoy taking photo's, so I'm having a good time wading up to my freezing nads taking picci's.
I had a look around at a few web sites to see if there was anywhere nearer and found Cayton Bay which looked a good spot so we headed over for a long weekend a couple of weeks ago and the sea was as flat as I've ever seen it. I kept an eye open, on this site in particular as it seemed to have the most detail about the size of the swells etc. so armed with the info of 6-8 ft waves last weekend and headed out again. What a difference a couple of weeks make. saturday was about right for my lad, he can't (or won't) paddle out to the breaks yet, so 4' is about right for him, as he catches them just after breaking and likes riding them all the way into shore.
I'm getting some good pics and we've finally found something that gets him off the x-box, so happy days all round.
'cept for the mrs. sat shivering on the beach on her own, but never mind, you can't please everyone all the time.

Nice to meet y'all, and it looks like I'll be checking in here regularly from now on.
I wish I knew what the frigg' you're all on about tho' :oops:

Hi,

Looking to get into the water this year and likely to be targeting the east coast of scotland and the west coast of galicia (the girlfriends spanish).

Not been in the water yet but had a misspent youth on a skateboard till very early twenties. I'm hoping to pick this up ok ?

Any other beginners looking to meet up and try to not drown....... give me a shout.

David.

Porthleven Cornwall
Ride my own boards (www.thirdshade.com) board count usually hovers around a dozen but fluctualtes rapidly when other guys order something interesting which inevitably results in me extending my quivver...all retro inspired.
Surf deep south west cornwall and rarely leave the village...why would you?

I'm 37, a skater for over 20 years+ and now learning to surf in the last 2 years. I regularly kick myself for not having started surfing when I lived near a beach break in Cornwall. at 15 you tend to be pretty militant about these things so anything outside of skating was shit

stoops . . . . .
