The anticipation is killing me

My new board is finally in transit. It has been a whopping 26 days since I bought it on ebay from a lovely chap in Ottery St. Mary (Exeter). I then hired the worst courier company known to man and have been waiting ever since. I was seriously starting to lose all hope but yesterday … Continue reading

Today is the only day worth celebrating

So today is my favorite day of the whole year, the splendiferous Pancake day! I only managed to eat 5 but it was at around 8.30pm and I had loads of work to crack on with so didn’t want to pog myself out and climb straight into bed. There was no surf on this great … Continue reading

The Emporers new suit

I finally got one! And I finally got in! Santa did bring me a lovely new West winter wetsuit (courtesy of my darling sister). Bright blue and thick, just how I like my bread slicing. There had been some good swell on the run up to christmas but I wasn’t allowed my pressy early so … Continue reading

A lucky surfer girls bedroom and shower

Ooh er! Sorry nothing saucy in this post, just more boring surf related ramblings. I have strategically moved my bedroom furniture round so that my bed  now looks out directly onto the surf. As soon as I wake up on a morning I can just pull the curtain back and see if there are any … Continue reading

Late evenings and early mornings

After the drought we got some sweet September waves in Saltburn. All the big guns had been out battling against mega white water but I knew my pitiful paddling would get me nowhere so stayed out of the sea. It was worth the wait because Tuesday evening was a special session. About 10 people out … Continue reading

Saltburn lines of love

This was one of the special days that the pull of the allotment won over the surf. I must really love gardening to not go in on a day like this!

Summer fun times

Sooooo long since I up dated this and that is because of the depressing news that I haven’t been getting my toes anywhere near that sea! It’s been gardening time and as soon as I knew that was all sorted then I could take another dip. Walking to the allotment was a hard task as … Continue reading

Riding the wild water

Finally we got some swell in the right direction yesterday. I checked it around 9.30 and I walked round the bend to where you get a clear view at the cliff lift and a massive set was rolling in. Clean, glassy long rolling waves with a bit of morning sun sparkling off them. It looked … Continue reading
