Mctavish – The shortest time I’ve ever owned a board.

Getting back in the swing of things now – had a few Sunday, sloppy sessions at Gwithian and had my first full fat beating in the middle of the week. An evening session that had overhead surf and blistering offshores put my lack of paddle fitness to the test. Not nice and I should have known better but it’s been pretty desperate and as the clocks had gone back I thought I better make the most of it. WRONG!!

One thing that was definitely right though was going to see Joan Armatrading for the start of her latest UK tour – last time we saw her was 25 years ago and we were worried that her voice may have suffered with time. Not a bit – in fact if anything it seemed even stronger and richer than before and if anything more confident on stage, however she don’t say much!!! Nice mix of old and the new ‘This Charming Life’ album which is a bit rockier. Great stuff and totally recommended – Swear that I spotted Billie Jean King there, might be mistaken.

It’s Been Awhile

It’s not because I’ve not been surfing, in fact even while I was vanless I still managed to get out on the ULI Lopez carried in a rucsac on my little Honda 250. Great fun and a fantastic way to stick two fingers up to the principle of 24hour car parking charges recently imposed at Gwithian.(You can’t put a pay and display ticket on a motorbike).

Super Bowl Sunday Paddle on Skull Creek

Nah Skwell 8’8"

Knowing that I only had a few days to try the NS 88 I was hoping for a bit of a let up in the weather, we had the swell but along with it was 15 – 20mph onshore winds. That coupled with pretty much bang on low tides after work meant just one thing at Gwithian. Hideous, dumpy closeouts, (is that three things?). Anyway the forecast was looking better for Thursday, so in true forward planning style I decided to give it a bash mid beach on Wednesday night.

Sure enough trotting across the beach and staring out at chest high walls of white water I almost said to myself ‘Sod it, I’ll go back and watch the tour’, but there is something about the investment that it takes to put on a wetsuit, even if it’s only a little shorty, that makes it inevitable that it going to get wet, plus even with the stiff, gusty wind in my face carrying the little 8’8″ was dead easy and not at all like fighting with some mad, kiting, wing of foam that almost has to be dragged flapping down the beach. It’s the little things like this that can make a board grow on me.

If Chuck Norris had a surfboard .. ..

Here’s something that you don’t see everyday, two genuine, first generation ULI inflatable surfboards. A 6′ x 24″ twin fin fish waxed and used and a 7’6″x26″ twin fin minimal unwaxed and never used. Both 5″ thick. I’m the wrong side of 14stone and have ridden the little one, not a pretty sight but it does the job when you need to scatch that itch.
