Garbage surf today in Central Morocco. Made even better by my buddies sending me pictures of it going off back home the last few days! :twisted: :roll:

Knee high sheltered North sea wind chop for today. As the tide went out, so did whatever waves there hardly were there in the first place...
Turned the session into a paddle training and went for a km or so of paddling along the shoreline.

Kindof felt like the first stirrings of spring where in the air though!

Bad back causing foot placement difficulties and pain plus weak crappy waves = don't ask more than you're given it'll only piss you off!

First time in the UK for a few months.

Way too fussy about surfing in shite these days.

Off to Capetown in 4 days I'll trade shite for sharks and see if that works any better for me.

mmm.....having had one close encounter, here in oz....when you see that fin break the surface and slowly disappear its a strange feeling and one i don't want again, when its clean, offshore, but the water is murky, i wish i was back surfing shite.

ON the plus side, the Kom next wed i see is 5 star, 9'5 ft at 13 sec, but its cold 13 deg at midday.

Muizy is pretty low risk, even has shark spotters on the cliffs. And always fairly busy (can be crowded on weekend) so improves your odds! :lol:

Enjoyed a few crappy surfs at Croyde last couple of days.Wasn't as good as I thought it might be and it was rammed but lovely to be in the water again after what feels like ages. Can we have some lined up swell that lasts a few days soon please FFS!

Spent a lot of time driving looking for spots with surfers out, very quiet here. Lots of spots with really good quality waves and no surfers to be seen. Makes me feel a bit edgy about paddling out on my own. Locals have been reassuring though....

Had a few good surfs at Llandudno/Big Bay/Kom... Seems very quiet here spots are never rammed and the SA surfers are way more friendly and inviting than most places I've travelled.

paddle out bit late for the dropping tide
knock a fin out on a rock
go back up the cliff to grab a fin key to fit it back in properly
on the walk back down kick a rock so hard I rip a load of skin off my toe and get blood everywhere
by the time that was sorted out I'd missed the tide entirely.
fucking arse.

Truly dreadful session today. Tried out Consolacao near Peniche.

Basically a rocky point break, holding 6ft clean swell today.

Entering the sea I got swept off sharp rocks, damaging board and feet. Caught one 5 second ride, before getting h caught in a rip, unable to paddle back out. 30 mins paddling later, a rogue set comes and wipes me out, smashing me and the board on the rocks, 50m down the beach.

Cue a painful scrabble back to safety. What made it worse, is my mates had a belter!

Just one of those wrong place, wrong time, everytime sessions, off the back of no sleep.

Crap surf then tripped on a rock and fell flat. Sure my toe is broken. Provided a laugh for the whole beach though!

Wobbly, massive, closing out, and to top it all off, 8 paddle boarders turned up and paddled out at once. Shit!

I hurt both hips on the Friday on a wave that had loads of steps in it - so on the Sunday, for some reason, I kept popping up right on the back of my board & wheeling down the waves, slap slapping the board up & down & getting more & more angry. Caught one decent wave in 2 hours :oops:

Lovely spring morning, gentle offshore, looked small but 2' on the sets, would have taken out the longboard but nobody in this morning, maybe due to the 4.5m great white that knocked a 15 year old girl out of her kayak yesterday, just south of this spot, luckily she's ok.

Whatever I was doing in the water tonight, it wasn't surfing. Couldn't do anything right - if you'd seen me you would think it was my first time surfing! :oops:
2 days ago I had a stoke surf - how does that equate?
