Headhigh plus set waves with enough grunt to snap a poor chaps longboard. Definitely not the 2-3 pap they forecast.
AND wall to wall sunshine with light offshores.
The only downside was, I had a massive hangover as I was expecting it to be the usual shit we've had for the last 2-3 months. :lol:
:-D :-D


:lol:

I'm down from Scotland for the week and Sunday was my first surf down here. Spent all of Sunday morning going 'fucking hell 2-3ft down here cranks in comparison to our coast'. The number of folk out at Fistral is a bit of an eye opener though, I'll never complain about crowds again back home.

Monday first thing was small but still super fun.

This week looks pretty grim too, makes me want to start a "worst summer ever" thread.
Perranporth has the slight advantage there over Fistral in that you can spread right out as the tide drops.
Hope you find some stoke while you are down.

Unfortunately I'm a long way past caring about anyone's grandma erm grammar. A quick scan of the page and that was all I had. I'll be back in a few days for MM's swift riposte.

Back on topic:
That could be the best surf in the most unpromising conditions I've had. From arriving (Fistral) to catching the first wave I decided to go home probably half a dozen times it looked sooo crap - luckily I persevered and was rewarded. :-)

Long past caring about anyone's grammar but you did anyway? Hmmm, the long winter nights must fly by in your house.

Anyway, either is fine.

hey, no need to be so defensive :D

Re my linguistic relaxation, I'm posting (at lightening speed - this response has taken under a week of long evenings to craft) on a thread about 'stoke' ffs* , something I've done my best to avoid in what's becoming a tediously lengthy 'surfing' career...

Saturday was excellent at local spot here but every man and his dog who owned a board showed up. Some numbty took off right in front of me as I paddled out and ran right over me badly dinging board. Was slightly annoyed to say the least. Other than that had a great surf.

never seen waves as good as this in Aberdeen. Head and a half to 2x0h big rippable walls, smaller crowd when it was on. carnage when it mellowed out. Great again today, maybe head high max. Plenty of bombs taken, way too much paddling. reminded of what a proper wave is for once. nearly 9h water time in 3 days. cmon winter

Stunningly good surf with few in just west of Santander on my last day. Spoilt only by ripping the back of my thigh muscle when my back foot dropped off the back on a chunky lumpy one. Soooo painful. Go to that beach if you are in the area!

Monday was as exceptional as Sunday was disappointing. As above caught a handfull of bombs. East at its best.

Certainly does. Can almost smell it as it passes. Actually we barely see much of even a dead northerly, unless it's of sufficient size.

Two days of super clean waves which were actually shite. Too crowded, big tides etc.

And then yesterday in Storm Callum, big, wild barrels with only me out. Much better!
