Floods in Cornwall

We had some really bad flooding here yesterday, lots of people downriver had their houses flooded. Not good. I'm guessing a whole lot of crapola has been washed out to sea too, making surfing a bit perilous to your health. Fortunately there was no loss of life. All this was not helped by the de-forestation down the Glynn Valley, with little to soak up the deluge the new culvert on the A38 dumped 120 tonnes of slurry on the road closing it for the day. Trees, we should love 'em.

A Tuesday in November…

The 9th to be precise, kind of looks surfable maybe? Must have been blowing 30 knots, hard even to stand and take a picture. Next day was nearly still and a good'ish day for a surf, well not been in for so long it was bloody brilliant, good craic too. Looks pretty poor for the week ahead, at least I'll be free for a bit of F1 finalĂ©. Lewis Hamilton is 100-1 against at the minute, might be worth a punt…

A few new fins on the site this week, some Greenough's, including the Burl ones, a couple of Farberow and some new Norm's… and for those who are waiting the Nine Plus are on there way, promise.

November news…

I'd like to say there is a lot to report surfwise but alas October was pretty poor and November hasn't shown much quality as yet. Had a look around the South Coast today as the supposed pulse of large swell was supposed to hit, hadn't really got into any spots near us. Here's hoping that a few secret'ish spots might light up tomorrow (9th Nov) going to take the cameras out so watch this space.

Got a few fins about to go up on the site this week, including the 'burl' wood Greenoughs we have been waiting for since ages man. They are pretty damn cool so worth waiting for I'm guessing.

Get on thine prayer mats and pray to the good God Neptune for some clean lines. Amen.

It's officially cold…

Just for the record, boots were worn for the first time on 30th October, winter suit is out of mothballs and ready for action. For some reason I'm not looking forward to the cold even more this year, maybe it's the fourth terrible Summer in a row, anyway can't put off the inevitable, stiff upper lip and all that.

Pretty great waves for Halloween, but now looks pretty poor the the week or so ahead.
