Uneventful Day At Pporth
October 31, 2009

Ben, Joe and I went to Perranporth today. It looked alright from the cliffs and it actually was alright. Joe and I were barely getting waves because of the odd way the wave broke. Right when it seemed like it was going to throw over, the wave would just flatten out. By the end of the seshuan we were having some decent rides.

I’ve been incredibly lucku with this thing for all my Cornish seshes on it. I’ve only lost it once where it went all the way to the beach, and that was right before we were about to leave. All the other times, either the wind blew it towards the line up or it drifted into my friends’ hands or when I did lose it, I was able to grab it before the next set came.

Epic Stub Sesh at Towan
October 29, 2009

Took out my stubbie for a second Cornish time. Keith drove me to Porthtowan, Alex got there shortly after us. From the beach it looked like the waves were breaking super fast but when you got out there it was actually uber fun.

Dinner with Some Tutors
October 28, 2009

The sportswear kids had dinner with Patches O Houlihan and his wife Jane. They have an epic house with cool knick knacks.

Perranporth Stub Sesh
October 28, 2009

So Ben was getting super bored after not surfing for 3 days due to a leg injury caused by surfing, so we went to Perranporth. I was going to wait till the weekend to try the Stub but ended up taking it and it was the funnest sesh I’ve had in a while. The waves were actually glassy and barrely. Sooo good.

Stub No Longer On Hiatus
October 28, 2009

Since it’s been about a week since the fin repair sesh, I think I’ll take my good old Stub to Cornish waters this weekend.
