When I lived up north we used to go to Angelsey (Cabled bay) We would go in for a surf no matter how good or bad the surf was. Well the round trip Wrexham to cable bay was 130 mile. Quite a trip on New Years day but now i live in Bude to get to Cable Bay and back is 670 miles. (Bit to far).
So if anyone is up for it I am surfing at Summerleaze (Bude) getting in as before at 11.00 . See you there if anyone fancy it.

Last Day of 2011

Well it's the last day of the year
Surf is rubbish and it's cold wet and windy. So how can i cheer you all up ???????? I know I'll show you somebody who is surfing in colder conditions than most of us will ever do. I give you....

Cheer up it's nearly summer.

With this spell of strong winds (nothing to do with Christmas sprouts) and poor waves for us here in Bude .
 I have been trawling  the internet to find a video of UK surfing and this is what I found. It keeps with the tradition of the site as there is longboarding short boarding and at least one wave near Bude.

Will be back to surfing soon but the christmas day swim is such a big event in Bude it would have been very rude not to post it. 
So here is the full video of the the morning swim. 
It is a charity swim all funds raised go to the surf life saving club. 
Donations can still be made at Zuma Jays surf shop or at the surf life saving club .

Saturdays surf

Went for a surf today, got in about 3.00. did need boots but no gloves or hood. The water was ok but the wind chill was not very nice. As far as the surf , well it was choppy/ messy all over the shop. But was glad to get in as its been over 10 days since last surf.

The Endless Winter

This is footage of a British film being made called "THE ENDLESS WINTER"
I don't know the release date , but I am really looking forward to seeing the finished item. The clip I choose is where they look back at the birth of big wave surfing in the UK (The Cribber). I totally respect the guys who first Surfed this wave not just because they where the first , but the equipment they used. Anyway you watch and make your own opinion of them.
