If your head is "actually spinning" then its no wonder you need to put surf wax on your lips! :lol:

yep jamblo, i am at exeter uni, streatham campus. thought i would be one of the oldest on the lpc at 23 years old, but much much older people who have had enough of raising their kids and are giving the legal career a go.all the new undergrads started this week, aghhh they look so cute and lonely. the boys just wander around aimlessly with shoelaces hanging out, scruffy dirty shirts and pining for their mamas! you can see it in their eyes, they have never done anything for themselves, bless the little poppets!undergrad new girls still insisting on wearing their summer mini skirts and little flip flops. if i wear a mini skirt now it is with boots and tights. gad it's cold.guess it is all to do with the uni ritual of mating!wish i had studied anthropology...determined to join the climbing wall at exeter uni, but it crap, no relief or anything, just a board wuith some knobs on.mmm anybody know of any places nearby that have decent climbing walls????

Howsitgoing all, not been round these parts for a while as I've been away, then moving house. Now in sunny Manchester :D :

Seems to be lots of new members and loads of threads I'll never catch up with...

Did everyone who went to SW france have some magical morning surfs like I did? Ahhh the glass... On the other hand, that right hand point near St Jean de Luz nearly did for me one evening. Got a bit cocky, caught inside and washed into the rocks. Board and body intact thankfully. Beautiful wave though.

Anyway, to celebrate pastures new and waste some time I thought I might invent a monday competition - which I plan on winning every week.

So folks, how many hours did it rain in your hometown this weekend????

Only around 36 here, one of the most beatable scores you're likely to get for a while :wink:

Rez, v. nice pics as usual m8, you're a better man than me I hardly got ANY, and nothing decent, as I was too busy surfing surfing surfing when I wasnt sleeping off red wine hangovers :D

Oop Noorf is good, not managed to get to the coast yet unfotunately.

Didnt surf in or outside the harbour at St Jean de Luz actually, but saw it working pretty big one day. The point I'm on about is called Lafetinia (sp?) just to the north. We were camped right by it for 6 nights. Too big for me most of the time, but what a wave :shock:

Got up to Hossegor/Seignosse for the last few nights of our trip, had a couple really good sessions at central, nice waves but pretty crowded hey? The WCT was just rolling in to town as we were leaving. Met a really sound South Afrcian guy, WQS surfer, hung out with him for a bit. Back out there same time next year I reckon...

You have a good trip too yeah?

Glad you got some nice surf mate. We stayed at seignosse mostly and had la piste barrelin at high tide a few times but super crowded with spongers ..saw a few broken boards aswell. :? The level of surfing out there is amazing ...everyone seems to be rippin even the grommets...oh well back to the office now wishing i was there . Will def. be going back there again 8) So did you put all your sticks in one bag and get away with paying one board charge?

Talk about monday moaning...

Postby surfbaby » Fri Oct 15, 2004 3:27 pm

What about fridays, this has to have been the worst week i have had in ages.i had one of those 'realisation' moments yesterday, you know the ones? when you realise that what you have been doing for quite a bit of you life is not what you have wanted to do at all, but you have just been too afraid to change the regular routine and go for what you really want? sounds all v. complicated, but i have had one of those moments and i am too afraid to give up what i have at the moment for what i really want. i am unhappy at the moment :cry: , so shall i take the plunge and change the course of my life or let people talk me into carrying on my life as it is. oh dear in a right state :cry: :roll: at least i have the weekend to look forward too, going to st agnes. :wink: help...

Mate - here is a bit of 'life coaching' advice that someone told me once, and I try and follow....

when you are ever in that situation, think about what it is that you really want to do,

Instantly you will know what it is that will make you happier and more fulfilled, then your brain will kick in and tell you all the reasons why you should not.

TRUST the first feeling, its your life, its all about risks, thats what makes it fun....

Hope things work out for you...

i agree fully - your inner self knows what you want -= it just has to get past the inbuilt negativity that most people have - think of it like 2 radio staions Positive FM and Negative FM all you have to do is tune into Positive FM and stop listening to your Negative FM (tune it out) trouble is that your brain forgets and automatically tunes into the much more used Negative FM - as soon as you realise though just hit the button and change channels - eventually you brain will automatically tune into Positive FM - then there is nothing in the world you cant do - you just gotta want to enough!

If i had listened to negative fm i wouldn't have moved to cornwall last year - i would have listened to my doubts and other peoples jelous negativity and stayed in Bucks (lovevly) all i gotta do now is get work that i realy enjoy and not work i have to do to survive
