We had great fun with these two legends in perfect waves yesterday. Despite both surfers living in a city and having left it to thier 20's to give surfing a go, both were standing by the end of the lesson. We cant wait to see them next time for lesson number 2.

The boot battle is over!

I think it is safe to say that the battle of the boot is well and truly over!

With the Westward Ho! sea temperature now at a tropical 14 degrees, and still climbing, this familiar struggle any cold water surfing fanatic must go though is now a thing of the past!

There is no easy way to get your foot into a wetsuit boot. Everyone has their preferred method from plastic bags to brute force. This is young surfer Issac came for surfing lessons with me a few weeks ago and is using the 'lay on my back and get mum to put my boot on' technique. A classic!

Winters Away

The last few years I have been lucky enough to work the summers here in North Devon and in the winter travel to warmer waters in pursuit of waves. The last 2 years I have spent the colder months in Indonesia. Indonesia offers warm waters, consistent waves and great food in an amazing location.

This photo of me was taken on a small island call Nias off the coast of Sumatra.

Waves Waves and more Waves

We have been so lucky with the recent run of swell. Large waves, off shore wind and sunshine.

Summers on the way.

This picture was snapped right off of the beach at Westward Ho! earlier this week.
