    Hallowe’en surf trip 2022

    We had a blast. In the end there were 27 of us staying at Retorrick Mill. The weather was a real mixed bag. Saturday morning the waves were a bit sketchy and the current was insane, but a few of us went in in the afternoon also and found some good ones, while the others […]

  • Ladies, all the ladies!

    Ladies, all the ladies!

    In recent years there’s been a real growth in women-only travel and indeed solo travelling women-only holidays. There’s a whole host of reasons for this ‘phenomenon’ – it’s a great idea; being part of a ‘girl gang’ somehow makes everyone there feel more involved, more relaxed from the get-go, there’s so much encouragement and laughter.

    Boardmasters weekend

    OMG – Boardmasters is a cool festival. Perched on the clifftop above Watergate Bay this has to be one of the most beautiful, dramatic, epic settings for a music festival. And we are going to be there (7th Aug 2020). Well, at least the Saturday. Which (in my opinion) has the BEST lineup; Kings of […]

  • Where’s your head at?!

    Where’s your head at?!

    Life can be an arse. Fact. The drudgery of the 9-5, family pressures, a complicated partner, money worries, health worries… LIFE! It’s weird – you can be perfectly fine, everything is going great… but somehow you can just feel MISERABLE! And your head can be your own worst enemy – it’ll blow everything out of […]

    Surfing, the next step

    Loads of people go surfing – have a few lessons, stand up, ride into the beach, in the frothy water, in a straight line. Completed it mate… not quite. This is the first step though and brilliant fun that it is, you’ve work to do before people will mistake you for Kelly Slater. The next […]

  • Shall I buy a wetsuit?

    Shall I buy a wetsuit?

    If you are going in the water regularly (particularly in the UK) you should definitely get your own wetsuit. The better the fit, the warmer you’ll be and the better time you’ll have in the sea / lake / river / puddle. Also, there are two types of people in this world: those who pee […]

    Learn to surf in the UK

    We just got back from one of our weekends away to Cornwall – there was 28 of us! A bigger crew than normal, I think due to the fact it was May bank holiday and the campsite we stay at hosted the Chill at the Mill festival. Frankly it was epic. Our normal surf weekends […]
