    I can't get the week off but will be surfing Fri/Sat.

    Quality waves all week suits me. It means everyone will be surfed out again so we get the dawnies all quiet and loveley at the back end of the week.

    Smile

    Wave bouys went up another 3ft so it was past the magic 6ft which means there is a wave on my local but when I got there it was bearley 2ft with the odd 3ft wave and a long wait inbettween sets.My gloves needed a repairing the thumb and middle finger were holed so I cut the fingers and thumbs off another pair of gloves and glued them on which made them fit very tight after a hour I had to get out as I could no longer feel my fingers when I got my gloves off my fingers and thumbs had turned blue I painfully thawed them out in the toiletes under the warm air handryer the goat boarder who wore no gloves was using the other one Very Happy

    Should have gone to Pilates

    No Yesterday
    Bit of a bummer being a South coast surfer at the moment waves just to small to do anything on the only saving grace is I seem to have a much higher wave count than the standups

    Those gloves were sold out asked if they were going to get anymore in to be told that winter is over and they are getting there summer stock in. Ened up buying a pair of O,Neil ones but salesman steered me away from the more expensive ones to cheaper one when I told him I would like them as flexible as possible,we shall see
