Surprisingly pleasant surf tonight at Perranporth. Better than it looked initially and felt more like normal waves again instead of the rubbish we've had to put up with. :-)

Tues could be the time to man up boy! Wednesday morning 3 am for me, sounds like a Simon and Garfunkel song.

Friday was mental at Cayton, the path down was a waterfall, some ok chunks came through

Seen the new graffitti on the southern bunker, very impressive

Few good sessions lately.

Sunday evening a couple of weeks ago, during the England match, maiden-voyage on my spankers first board (more on that later..... :-( ) lots of small but clean, glassy lefts at Putts and hardly anyone else out, had the time of my life catching lots of waves and my board intuitively felt right for me.

This thursday/friday just gone, down at a few breaks in Cornwall, visiting the parents who were on holiday down there. Strong off-shore winds, took a while to twig why I kept drifting behind where the waves were breaking!! - durrh!
But paddled in to some of the biggest waves of my surfing career, probably only 3-4 foot, but it looks a lot bigger when your heads at water-level. Caught a few corkers. Keep on having "best rides of my life" most sessions, so that's promising.

The wind dropped in the evening, leaving some lovealy clean waves, but by this point I'd spent so much time in the water I could barely move my arms haha, so I called it a day. Watched some really talented surfers, and saw one guy tuck in and get barrelled for a few seconds - first time I've seen that, and I'm super-stoked.

New board on the other-hand, is no-longer perfect (thread to follow as soon as I can get access to a good quality camera.)

A nice clean 2/3 ft session at Scarbs this morning at 5...occasionally bigger set waves but no way near the 5ft as reported elsewhere...seems to be dropping off pretty quickly though.

should gone to north or got in nearby...the right wasn't doing much it seemed so went in at cayton, and although i got a few good waves , should have gone in elsewhere


utterly fed up of surfing closeout left handers now though. maybe i'll get in again tomorrow. third time lucky !

Early o'clock with Mal-N , forgot to pay 'kin car park charge and had to get out mid session..... Must be expensive to surf all year round here with parking charges ..... Beginning to sound like a stuck record but I reckon I'll have dropped nearly £140 in parking charges by the time I head back up the road ..... :twisted:
