    What do I mean by the swell not making it up the channel ?

    Channel wave bouy peaked last night at 9ft but there was zero swell at Greenwhich lightship the next wave bouy along in the channel so ground swell seems to be sitting in the neck of the channel.

    No wave at Highcliffe which is a better indicator than Bournemouth

    Surfing at K Bay is about faith as you never know what you will find there could well be a wave Saturday but I am yet to be convinced

    This has all come about as the last mat meet in Dorset was called off in near perfect conditions

    Definitely not going to make it now - wifey is working all day (and I'll be working harder looking after 3 little ones).

    Have a great time, I'll be along to the next one no doubt.

    fingers (legs, everything else) crossed conditions are right enough...

    Picked up 3 bellyboards from Gavin at Traditional Surfing today,that was kind.
    Bodysurfed Praa this morning,10-12" waves(20" faces).Then went to Porthmeor.North Coast all along was about chesthigh,crumbly dumpers.
    I'm treating this weekend as a trip,not a potential session!A Flatmeet,as it were!
    Not bringing any extra mats as mine won't be big enough for you bigguns!Anyone got a UDT?!
    Not missing much here for weekend,either!Onshore,crappy swell,nice and warm though!

    Perfect for trying out the K-Mat.

    Can you S Coasters work out a good hook up point and post it here please?

    Cheers

    Lets wait & see he of little faith, for example small groundswell running all day today at Bournemouth in the sunny

    G - I`ll speak with Joe and post up on here, if its on I reckon the time to be meeting up is 8.30 on water by 9.30 to get best of tides, but will confirm tomorrow

    Going to be a 50/50 day, swell here at the mo but big tides tomorrow.

    I'm happy to green light it but understand if its to risky for most.

    Suggest meeting at the bakers arms pub postcode bh16 6jf right off the A35, say 8.15? Big high tide at 9 and low is at 1.45.

    Going to watch the rally and I'll be back in a few hours. Cheers Joe

    Unfortunately not going to make it as the 16 hour return drive seems like a bit of a risk....
    Enjoy, hopefully will meet some of you guys next time I pass back through the UK.

    Sorry to hear that Neil. Fully understandable.

    At the mo, I've got the following on my list of attendees:

    PJ
    Blimp
    Gaz
    Matt23
    Tommo
    Piskian
    Me

    Is that right or are there more?

    Defo not the bench, that`s asking for trouble. Ledges or further around depending on conditions and crowds. Much better you meet us at 8.15 to be sure as it could well be busy tom meaning we have to find a quiter spot somewhere else. Phone signals are usually bad there, so if you turn up late you will just have to take the risk of spotting us I`m afraid.

    The most important thing is that we find a peak to ourselves somewhere. Poor quality empty is better than high quality and rammed.

    Also, we can hang about for 15mins or so but need to crack on so I'd urge people to set off in good time. Piskian and I will be leaving Plympton at 0515.

    Cheers
