    Friday... Poop... Gonna weld a mat.

    Saturday...Poop... Might shape these handplane/paipo thingies.

    Sunday... PUMPALICIOUS DAWGS!!!!!!!

    I think there could be good waves everywhere on Sunday. The choice is, drive or not drive? I'm tempted by the idea of Tregantle again as the banks are schweet and that long period swell looks good to get in. However, there are a few sneaky little rare nooks and crannies on the North that could get going.

    Of course the other option is hit the main spots which could well be mackin!

    Right not, I'm tempted to check out the Whitsand stretch and then head down if it isn't on.

    Us'll see....

    G

    PS Could all change of course. Never trust nuffin these days innit bruv!

    Dunno.Anywhere good mid-high really.Sun off so plenty of time.Swell really jacking up thru'out day so prob'll do first dip on incoming tide,then second session in afternoon somewhere West.Praps even three!
    Just had an extrapolation-phew.
    Reckon P'porth early,able to handle biggish swell and break cleanly up to high,or our alt rivermouth.And if it's too small,there're myriad options nearby.What you think?

    Well, probably gonna look local first and head down if it's not on. Should be though. Looks to be wrapping around and stretching to a reeeeeeeealy long period. If it ain't on the that river sounds a great shout. Especially as the tide will be up that bit more by the time I'd get there (about 830).

    If the swell really isn't showing here then I'll come down earlier.

    Our original choice was a big dumping straight hander. Having heard from Sinclairio that he was restricted to two 50cc powered wheels, Piskian and I opted to head down and hook up with him at Hayle Rivermouth...

    What a session! Just us and Surfhog Dave, plus mate, for a while as glassy head high rights wrapped their super-periodic selves into the bay to peel cleanly into the rivermouth.

    Brilliant.

    Shame I've got a dead arse from being slammed onto a rock getting out.

    G

    PS Casper is quite a mat. cheers

    Swell up here... And crowds...



    f*ck that....

    Anyway, tried out the stills setting on the GoPro today. Not that impressed, although it was low light, but I think video frame grabs are the way. Anyway, I've had to art them up and they're still not great. Managed to get none of the more solid waves that came through too! Sad

    Anyway, here you go:

    Piskian


    Sinclario


    Piskian


    Piskian


    Me and Casper


    Piskian and me


    Piskian duckdive


    There you go. Good fun.

    My arse is properly hurting. Sad

    Ha, that's alright hey? Shame they didn't work, it's not that bad though having that hat on! It's actually so much better surfing with mates, or if you can't do that then you lot! Hopefully there is something about next week! If not I'm getting out on the Paipo!

    Sounds like I missed a real rad session this morning having been out far too late last night Evil or Very Mad

    Did get in with Clare yesterday afternoon at WB just as it is was picking up - one lovely long right screamer.

    Might try and get a late one in tomorrow.
