had rubbish surf (still better then good day at work)

Life isnt all rays of sunshine and barell fests. Sometimes you get kicked in the knackers, you lose your keys or get dropped in on 10 times. To add a bit of realism into the mix- put your shite surfs in here...

ps changed the name title cos rubbish surf is still better than being at work...and you can always learn something new

Nice one Danny, this is more ike it a bit of realism to counter some of the keyboard surf pros on the surf stoke sticky.

Well my last surf (last week) was complete crap - head high but sloppy shite.
In fact the last decent surf here must have been a month ago.

June usually brings good stuff so very disappointing.
At least we have "super consistent" July and August coming up... :cry: :cry:

Cayton last night, bunkers 2ft slow mushy shite. Pumphouse a bit better but still shite.

The odd 3 footer was coming thru at 30 mins intervals.

Not been in for over six weeks due to work so haven't even been able to have a crap surf. :cry: Look forward to my next crap surf any day soon. :-D
If only there was a simpler way to get difficult things done.

Godrevy after work. Absloute shite,.............. again.
2ft, Politician surf................ .no Faces, and weak shoulders.
The banks have been crap since February. Huge amounts of water between them so the waves back off before they have even broken.
Cheered myself up by thinking "Well, at least there are no Goat Boaters out here"
and F@$k me, one paddled out and sat right outside of me....... :shock: ......Whole F%*k!ng beach empty and he went on the same peak (sic) as me.

Came in and hit the pub...............
Hope for big this wekened cos I've just downsized again from my 7'2" to 6'6".
(do I qualify as a shortboarder yet?) :?
Godrevy; Just like surfing. but smaller (and without the power)

Were you out on your shortboard?
Would like to see things from your point of view but cannot seem to get my head that far up my arse.

Left home at 4 am yesterday, arrived mid welsh coast around 7 ish, with conditions looking top class.. clean, head high, hollow sections, everything.

By the time I had met up with mates and kitted up conditions weren't as good, but still not bad, we moved a mile or so south looking for a better shaped wave and got in. Did no good, and the wind became a howling cross-on.. we all decided to look for shelter before the wind totally ruined it. Went about 20 mins north, round a rather exposed point, to somewhere "more sheltered" which I had spotted on a previous visit, but not surfed. Murderous high tide shorey was over head high onto stone.. decided to wait for the tide to drop.. went looking for food, and checked out a couple of other options.. which weren't working in the wind. Arrived back to see the tide had dropped enough to give it a go, but it was fairly messy, and had lost a lot of size. Feeling totally frustrated I got in and mates left without bothering.

No shape to it, occasional rebound waves messing up what clean lines did form up, and a real longshore rip constantly pulling me off the peak.. For the first time in as long as I can remember I left the water not having caught a wave, in a foul temper, at about 2.30.

went home. Not stoked.

I feel your pain! Has happened to me a number of times - S Wales and N Devon are great for it - Get there at highish tide to see it pumping, then as the tide drops, the swell disappears.
Also used to do it a lot when I worked at the Oyster in Polzeath - Perfection whilst working (overlooking the surf) then onshore slop as soon as I finished my shift - ARRGHHH!!! :cry:

Just caught up with other threads, sorry. But there was a guy at L with a silver Astra estate that looked very much like you (from your running shot) and his partner had a bump going on but he had no boards. Just a coincidence I guess. Glad I didn't say Hi! :oops:

Decorator - Spooky!

I have a good mate (now in Canada) who looks so much like me (poor bugger!) that my own Mum mistook him for me once (at a distance)!!

Westwood is a skinny headed wimp.

I share only his hairline and have a blockhead useful for headbutting people.
Especially ones from the NE.

No idea how it actually happened (other than that i am not very good) but popped up the other day and foot slipped off and board hit me square in the nuts. Lucky water was cold (both for nut size and soothing properties). had to stand and breathe for a while until pain subsided.
