Another beautiful Monday morning surf today. There's something about heading to the beach when everyone else is going to work :lol:

But lumpy and bumpy but I caught a few that made it worthwhile and once again, was on my own for most of it!

yeah the water round here has been tasting much more chemically since all the rain and flooding, and my sinuses are in agony for a couple of hours after every surf. Still I haven't had any projectiling from either end... yet :pukeleft: :pukeright: :pukeleft: :pukeright:

wonder how long it will take all the sh!te to make its way down the Severn.. could get reeeeaaly rank

Tell me about it! I had to use my old wetsuit this morning and I was frozen solid in the northerly wind. My gloves seem to both have developed holes too so that did'nt help.

Good surf made up for it though!

Random just-for-the-hell-of-it surf at screaming onshore Saunton was surprisingly fun!

Indeed, but surprisingly it paid off.

Looked at the forecast yesterday and thought 'it's now or never '.

cracking little session at a well known beachy north in Cornwall yesterday, first ride on the Mac Fish and it was solid fun, 3ft and fairly clean with a few 5ft sets pushing through too. There were a few awesome bods out there to watch aswell, even Mr Skinner rolled up.......good day had by all :-D

Thankfully my rubbish surf from Monday has been completely banished with another awesome session on the longboard. Only caught 5 waves in the hour but bloody hell they were good ones!

Was thinking of taking it easy over Christmas but looking at the swell forecast I may have to get wet at least once next week!
