    Get well soon G

    The local was too crazy at low so I went to shitpipe for a look-see expecting nowt. I was surprised to find a clean 2ft left courtesy of the low tide. Out came the omni!


    (Incoming tide and backing off)

    Had a seal pup with me for a few waves which was cool but something smelt really ripe.
    Looked behind me and I was sharing the line-up with a dead seal that was floating in pale



    A grim discovery indeed. I've not smelt anything as bad since that dead Fin Whale washed up at Porthtowan! I hope it was not the pup's mum as I saw one a similar age with its mother last week (although they're probably fending for themselves ok now). Sad to think that this could have been one of the local seals that I've surfed or snorkelled with over the years. R.I.P. Crying or Very sad

    Friday, Saturday and Sunday have a fair bit of promise for Pentewan you know. Something at Chally tomorrow too but I wanna give this chest a bit longer.

    Who's up to what?

    I'm up to my armpits in brandy butter,but that's just my penchant.
    Don't know,may have a look at Pentewan tomorrow,or meander down James's way.Sat/Sun/Mon/Tues ad infinitum likewise!
    That seal looks like it died of old age.Usually they sink to the bottom,but with all that swell.
    The pups seem to be very early this year.Almost old enough for clubbing.
    I'll get me beavertail coat...

    Not enough for Pentewan tomorrow I don't think, but after that looks promising, particularly Sat/Sun. Swell goes well Southerly too so might struggle to get into those northerly nooks. Friday might be alright for the D Spot if the wind behaves.

    Well not the greatest Pentewan ever to start off. The swell was less than hoped so the point never got going. The banks in the middle of the beach seem off, partly due to the river becoming a raging torrent and cutting a raging torrent straight down the beach. Nonetheless, we managed to get some proper barrels at the harbour end. Mostly closeouts but with the odd racie beauty. I switched to my Micro Paipo for that...

    Brilliant...

    If you wanted to see a grown man slapping the water with a teatray,yelling,gesticulating and claiming every microride extravagantly,you should have been at P-wan today.If life was like Monsters Inc,we could have powered the Southwest off G' stoke power for a week.
    When I get my handplanes back off James and Juan,I shall be expostulating equally eagerly...
