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...
