    Plenty of waves about over the coming week.

    I'm looking at Friday. I reckon Pentewan might be on then too. Smile

    Turned out to be weak and backing off by the time I'd got in.

    Had a beautiful seal pup and its mum come up and say hello which was the high-point of the session.

    Invented a field-expedient drysock solution that worked a treat Laughing . It involves putting a pair of cotton socks on, then a co-op carrier bag (preferably) over each foot, followed by ye olde finsocks over the top of all that.
    No loss of circulation to my toes at all (unlike last time).

    Surprised it wasn't dark by the time you'd got that lot on! Very Happy

    Glad the waves are good. Bodes for a quiet weekend. Surf Empty and I have a Christmas do on Friday night so I'll be surfing Friday and Sunday. I'm still eying Pentewan for both at the mo.

    We're in Plymouth.

    Might try to shuffle stuff about and get in tomorrow local as Friday looks pretty short fetched. I'll see how things pan out.

    Steep and punchy sets were on the menu today.

    Looked ok but turned out to be a bit of a crap session in the end. Sort of an "all or nothing day" - waves were either insanely fast jacked-up vert barrels or backed-off drudge.


    (1hr after low)

    Should've joimed Ian James. Perfect for Hayle today.

    Had Chally this avo. Pretty good. I'm gonna weld up my mat tomorrow so won't be surfing but will be down Sunday. Looks good for Pentewan or maybe somewhere further down on the high tide on sunday but us'll see.

    Surfed Pentewan first today-headhigh awful nonsense.So went on the traditional Roseland wavehunt,via Portmelons,Lord Zumba's favela,Caerhays(actually smaller and cleaner than Pentewan,hmm)then down to Portscatho,which was cranking off the reef to the left.A few barrels,very shallow but fun.




    What time at the spot Sunday?
