First up, apologies for the blog being down since Australia. I have been too busy with work, recovery and traveling!

The blog is now back, missing a post or two, which I have added the images for in here...

Quick recap then:

Since Chile (awesome trip) before Christmas, we have made the most of every second...got back to the...

Well we are back again! Good old Pozo Izquierdo, this time for only 2 weeks of summer time port tack jumping and windy windy windsurfing!

So far we have been here 1 week, and we have a week left. Just a quick blog post with one or two pics to test out the new site theme!

Talking of testing I have been using the new Simmer Frugal...

First of all I am very happy to announce support from O'Shea Surf! Their wetsuits are incredibly warm, super flexible and perfect for windsurfing and surfing! I have been wearing just my 5mm stealth and it kept me roasting warm even in the recent winter Easterlies! Cheers O'Shea!!

So what's...

Well Autumn has fully kicked in this week!

Hedging all bets me and Sarah took Wednesday off this week and after surfing Fistral Wednesday night, kipping in the van and then windsurfing Gwithian/Mexicos twice and surfing through sunset when the wind dropped it was worth it!

The waves were great, the wind was super gusty...

Well there is finally some wind in Devon/Cornwall now, we just had a quick session at Bigbury. The first five minutes were fun but it quickly degraded into standard Bigbury underpowered wobbling around in poo brown water.

Waves were about head high but low tide close out central - at least it was good for a giggle. Tomorrow looks a tad...

Apologies for the delay in updates!

The South West has been pretty mediocre over the last month and a bit. I only sailed once in the whole of July! It's starting to get better now though, everyone has their fingers crossed for a great Autumn.

We have had a few surf sessions recently and one 5.3m light wind session at Gwithian the...

Well we are back from Pozo Izquierdo, Gran Canaria to a windy but cold United Kingdom!

We didn't get a great amount of waves in Pozo while we were there so we only took a few photos on the last couple of days and only for a few minutes, either way there are a couple of ok ones!

Overall the trip was great fun, all our friends that...

Well in a rather rushed decision we booked last minute flights to Pozo, Gran Canaria. Taking 4.5 days leave we have 10 days on the water courtesy of old queenies jubilee! An offer too good to miss with restricted leave.

The first day we sailed at Vargas on 4.7m with some small forward ramps but not a lot else going on. Yesterday, there...

Well it has been a very busy bunch of weeks since we got back from Chile! The U.K. has been absolutely rubbish, we have literally had no decent swell since we got back.

Still on an exciting note I have my new Simmer Quantum 85l board in now and it rips! Perfect board for making the most out of U.K./European conditions!

There was...

Well we are back in the U.K.! It has been mayhem since we got back, catching up with friends, catching up workwise and still getting a few cheeky sessions in!

For anyone who missed it... give the Chile article a read at http...

Unbelievable. We went to Topocalma last Sunday for the first windy day in what feels like ages. Everyone had said they were going to go and as it was the weekend we were nervous it was going to be busy and involve battling for waves in mediocre conditions...

On arrival there was no one else there at all! We bumped into one friend who was...

Wow - what a fun wave! Matanzas was great last night, we fully utilised Swifty's rock advice which definitely makes spotting gaps in the sets for launching so much easier! The waves were overhead and a bit in the sets and fast as usual!

I only caught a few waves before a cutback on a really heavy section led to me burying the nose and...
