    MATMEET 9 - 25/26 Feb, 2012

    Post  Admin on Tue Jan 10, 2012 5:54 am



    Ahoy there UK Matters!

    Thanks to everyone for giving their availability. Matmeet 9 is now confirmed as follows:

    Sat 25th or Sun 26th February, 2012
    @
    Dorset English Channel


    We'll pick spots, etc near the time but this area is definite.

    If it's small, we surf small... If it's onshore, we surf onshore... I'm confident we'll have glassy offshores and blazing sunshine though! cheers

    Keep both days free as we'll try to get the best one.

    Cheers

    Admin

    This'll be more than day trip for me I expect - I'd rather crash out than into something. So which vicinity are we heading for so I can get it sorted?

    Nobody will be able to do that Jerry. When we've tried that before we've wound up with 4 there as people have family stuff to sort etc. I could only make two of those dates in the end.

    We have to cross our fingers. However, I confidently predict 3-4 foot glass.

    Might be worth taking as many bellyboards as we can muster just in case its teeny. You can have a blast on them in anything.
