I have been taking photos of surfers for a few years now. But its only really this year that I have become a regular. The first few seasons I started on mid august and ended when it was too cold to put my feet in the water. This year I started in march and so really started at nearly the coldest time of year(sea wise).
I know if you stop and start something then you never really learn. Now I know when the surf is likely to happen(just look on this sites forcast) and I have a trusted set of surf shoes to keep me warm.
The pictures can only get better with more experience.
Sorry about the cayton thing. I really did copy that from somewhere(not sure where. But it would not surprise me if the southerly tip of cayton bay faced westerly. Of course most of it faces north east (thats obvious). But I still refer to the whitbys east and west piers as north and south because that makes sense.
I will maybe have a good look on magic seaweed and see what kinds of moves are rated highly.
and if you see someone on the beach taking pictures then remember to smile and say cheese.
