BRISTOL

Looking for a lift to the beach? Got a car and fancy a help with petrol costs? Just want to bump into a few folk heading in the same direction?

Hi, me and my boyfriend have just moved to bristol. Were looking to improve fitness before we surf again, as mines gone way down hill after a broken foot...
But anyways have you checked out the bristol surf club, they meet on thursdays and run a lot of trips. £5 a year to join i belive. Also check out beach shack. Surf shop nearish where you are, kellaway avenue. They know a lot about the local surf scene. Only found the shop a few weeks ago even though i live quite near it!

Hi there!,

I'm considering moving to Bristol in about 1 month.
I'm a Computer Engineer so I was looking for a place where I can find a job easily and also not too far from surf spots so Bristol popped up, and also I have a good friend who also surfs living in Bristol at the moment.

I am taking my beloved van (1996 Fiat Ducato :D) with me.

It would be nice to meet with people around the area, and also to plan surf trips for sure!

Hi Tom!, how are you.

I am already in Bristol, how long does it take for you on a regular day to get there?.

Thanks and be in touch.

Hi Guys, I'm Al, 29 and hoping to move to Bristol this/next month. Still in relatively early days (early intermediate) of surfing having been a proficient kitesurfer and snowboarder for years, looking for people to hit Devon/Wales with.

I'm still looking for a decent room in Clifton/Redland anywhere pretty central with nearby parking really. Found some available online that look good but wondering if there are any Bristol based surfers out there that have a room to rent for a bit? Short term ideally to begin, but if all was working well maybe longer? I fly Air Ambulances for a living so work a weird roster pattern, but am often available on weekdays as well as weekends. I have an efficient diesel car so can drive or be a humorous passenger supplying food, music and entertainment.

If anyone is interested let me know ;)

Hi everyone

Is anyone planning on heading down to North Devon this weekend? I'm looking to go and stay at a mate's in Braunton, board is already there so I'd only be carrying my suit etc. Very happy to chip in for petrol. Let me know!

Cheers
Bernie
