    Call me a presumptious know-all,but mightn't it be a good idea to meet at the Hayle Macdonarudo,and then we have choice of rivermouth or P'noe etc depending on that hours wind direction?

    Praps... Dependent on whether people from further afield are happy to drive that far. Our alternative is to call Harlyn/Caerhays the night before.

    I there are at least two coming from the South East so we need to hear from them I think. Personally I like the idea of far West but let's see.

    Can't make this one – the first matmeet since I joined the forum, doesn't make a very good impression, sorry! On a deadline for a job, etc, etc. Have a good one, looking forward to seeing pics (especially of the wood!).

    (G-man: came up through Brittany in September and caught a sweet swell down the coast from Jim's, a little ways north of Penhors. Tottering standing stones on the bluff, sea mist, waves you could hear but not see from the beach, galettes afterward – the whole nine yards. Now I just need to learn French and win the Lottery, so that I can buy a house overlooking the break...)

    I know where you mean but don't remember the name. Just SW of Gwendrez as you get into that long stretch of coast?

    Good luck with the job mate.

    Has the water temp dropped since last weekend? I can cope with the wind. Just hide in the water!

    Does anyone have a poncho? Be good for filming to keep the wind off.

    Was in today for 3 hours and by the end was using my hood (for the first time this year) and was glad to have gloves on. Experienced my first hailstorm whilst out as Ian says!

    Meor was cranking. See you all tomorrow.

    Well,that was fun again.Can;t say I deserved the prize,though.Couldn't see anyone cos I was out too far,but paddling back out saw quite a few nice rides.
    Pity we weren't out an hour earlier.Was tempted to go straight out after I checked it and text you after hoho!
    As always huge thanks to G for organising everything,the Aeros,the medals,the booze.We need to reciprocate mate.
