Fun waves all week here. A dude riding a mini-mal had a go at me for spraying him though. :?

Stoke couple of surfs the last few days over in Kernow. Been working on generating speed down the line and now making waves that previously would have closed out on us. Practised backside a fair bit and done some of that 'pig-dog' malarkey to get a nice line down the wave. Super stoked as always and it was glassy and smooth today.

Lovely day of peely beachyness at Saltburn. Heaps of waves. If it was like that all the time I reckon I could actually get good at surfing.

nice wee session with only two other people out at Nigg yesterday, banks are a bit fecked though so not really hitting and peeling like the way I really love it.

Followed up with the Australian Pink Floyd in Edinburgh last night which was AMAZING, never thought I would get to hear some of my most favourite songs ever actually played live, crowd were pretty funny, mostly folks who must've seen PF the first time round and a good few who seemed to think they were still there :)

Back up the road today and fired up to Banff to find it was chest to head and a bit on sets, took in the 9'2 Quiver single and it absolutely flew, few super long rides to the inside, great lines turning off the tail, some nice off the top moves and great cutbacks, super stoked, just wish I had taken in helmet cam to record some of it!!!

Super fun slides at Widdy this morning, nice glassy long range swell, a bit setty but a few nice peelers coming through with good shape. Tried some MR twin fins in my Dale Walker Mini Sim instead of the keels that I had in it, made the board almost laughably loose which was fun but was surprised by the amount of drive I lost so not sold on the MRs in this board really.... think I prefer the keels but may take a few more sessions messing about to make a decision :D
