Gonna be going off! :-)I'm surfing South Hams tomorrow. Spent £55 on diesel last week! :-0G
Is "Vugga Cove" what Bowgie End's called?G
I'll be local (if at all - dodgy finger) tomorrow as well. Have lots of stoking fun!Dan
How'd everyone get on? I had a blast at Challaborough in the end.:-)G
After going curtain shopping with the wife and picking up my old man from Hospital it was off to Highcliffe my new local as just can,t aford the 120 mile round trip to Kimmeridge any more,as I pulled into the car park my first peek over the cliff was rewarded with some nice lines of swell there is something extra sweet when your local is firing. Then it,s a mad dash to get wetsuit on and get surfing plus the return trip back to the car for my earplugs that I forgot in my haste. Highcliffe is an average beachbreak but the waves do roll in for a long way so you do get long rides and a longer paddle back out, after watching Priskian surf at the mat meet I made up my mind to try and hold a higher line and get off the wave earlier, having caught a couple the next wave bottom turned a jammed a tight turn aheaded for the lip only to run out of speed right on the lip and went back down the wave feet first whilst watching the lip starting to pitch thinking this is going to hurt, a truly sureal experince. The day was capped off with a fantastic sunset whilst trying for that just one more wave
Sounds great Jerry.:-)I'm a master of the forgetting ear plugs trick. I also know what you mean on the joy of South Coast spots working. For me its getting those spots empty.Many's the time I've found great waves to have the session wrecked by crowds.G
Sounds good,Jerry!Funnily enough,I've been trying to stop shoulder-hopping and getting into the guts of the beast recently!I'm just lazy though,hate paddling back and duckdiving...Crantock was hard going,then rode tiny weak Caerhays with Kana pm.Strangely,that was more fun,I love trying to squeeze speed out in those conditions,massaging the mat into tiny power pockets,kicking like crazy to get round sections and exploiting the microwaves!Then today I chanced Perran high tide.Best session I've had for ages,2-3ft Venetian glass A frame zoomers.And three out in whole beach.Surreal.
Ps you'll get the hang of those lipbashes real quick,Jerry!G's the man for those.Managed to frontflip down the face under a lip today.Fins got caught up top!Got back onboard and carried on.Bless flexible surfcraft!I've done that on a bodyboard and gone down for me dinner many a time...
Think my turn ended as a skid and that was why I lost all my speed and looking back should have tried for a 360.Started to watch your DVD Priskian got a hollow Balsa ultra short board up in my loft that I was changing the rail shape but never got to finished it.Do you want your dvd back ?
Don't worry about dvd.Just pass it on to anyone who hasn't seen it.The Michelle Pfeiffer mat footage in the extras section is good,esp side-on views.Re:360s etc I find those kind of moves tricky unless mat's pumped up to the max which kind of defeats object.Done a few El rollos but real effort to pry mat off wave!That shortboard sounds great!Worth doing and selling to finance a surf sojourn?!
