    This Saturday and Sunday have something approaching promise. Looks like a small wave with the possibility of a light cross-shore wind.

    Anyone in?

    I'll probably be looking at late Sat/early Sun.

    Well, I was planning on Challaborough but as you're down I feel a high tide Widdy mush session coming on on Friday if you fancy it. We'll see if Bod's up for it.

    Would love to but we won't get down there until later on Saturday and will probably end up staying on the north coast on Sun.

    G,
    if weather fine will be at the Vintage Board Meet at Lusty Glaze from 10-1pm on saturday. GF will then want me to immediately drive to Bude and unload car + dog in Bude. Still up for a later saturday session around Bude if you can make it, otherwise may get permission for a longer drive sunday.

    OK We'll keep an eye on things. Polzy is a reasonable onshore wave and might be good for Tommo to get to too?

    Sunday early on the north for me. Looks poop but good to hook up with a few.

    Possibly a bit of shelter at Harlyn (although also pretty small perhaps)? Is that an option?

    Will have my Hayden spoon with me (for the vintage surf meet), so some of you guys into a bit of GG design history might be interested in having a feel of it Wink

    We're staying in St. Merryn. Well, in the holiday village which is probably not that near etc.

    Trying out your spoon sounds fab. You around on Sunday?

    Harlyn will be onshore and tiny.

    Polzy is the best onshore wave around. winds look pretty light early on too. I reckon meet at 0615-0630 at New Polzeath.

    I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.



    Worst I've had Polzeath in ages but still a blast. Great to hook up with Tommo and Bluey . Crazy asymmetric mat in Bluey 's boot too!
