NE england one day strike mission.

Unread post by krusher74 » Fri Oct 19, 2018 4:49 am

Well there was a chart so we went! 700 mile round trip from south wales to the NE of England for one surf! The good storms arnt frequent in the north sea but when they set up its possibly the UK's best wave. 1 5-hour epic 6/8ft surf.

A take-off so hollow and steep that even the uk pros arnt taking it on, but then after you take off on the shoulder with spit hitting your back you still get tubed 50ft later and then the inside throws out again for an even longer running tube!

"Fortune favors the bold" You planning a "strike mission" to the US West Coast this winter? El Nino conditions are being predicted...

yes I am considering maybe 6 weeks mid dec to end of jan.

I think the last weak el nino did not produce great waves for the monterey bay, but seemed to help out LA much more. :(

Is this a place that specialises in puddings? My memory you've got a pretty small car. Someone else drove?

Yes, they do have a pudding named after the county where this fish village resides.

We went in my friend's car but it's just a ford fiesta. We will drive any tiny car anywhere being Europeans. petrol is expensive!

We tried to get more photos from a local photographer friend, but they have gone to carve magazine for an article.
