Peek and I shared the Christmas spirit with the ducks and two swans, cake and bread - they were stoked!

Hell drive to North Devon today as part of my "get in some fun before I have to get a job again" program. Up and out by 5.30am into the foggy, cold, dark and dirtyness. Squirting the windscreen every 5 minutes to clear the dirt is a pain in the arse. I almost talked myself out of it and turned round for home and bed at one point.

Glad I didn't. Ended up at Saunton which I'd never surfed before. Fun little 2 footers with the odd bigger set, bunch of Longboarders out, some had it, some didn't. Rode the 6'6" with oversized daft fin and got a few good ones, getting into the groove with it now, Saunton might be the wave it's made for and I'll be back there.

Snapped a few things as usual.

Cold set.

Quiet crowd.

Right hand rocks.

Reflecting on my daps.

Gearing up for getting cold.

Grainy cruise.

The Peebler, served me well this last year, getting traded in for something bigger next weekend. Will be remembered.
And yes thats my stupidly oversized fin on that there surfboard.

Still no job, no surf for a while BUT I did manage a rad trip up the m5/6/55 to Ramp City in Blackpool with the crew last weekend. They recently took ownership of the Simparch wood pool/bowl and fullpipe, an art installation that has pretty much travelled the world. And it's rad. Especially the pool. I wasn't sure what to expect from it, but it's as near to a real pool as you'll get over here, probably a lot mellower but still steep in the right places. Oh and the fact it's suspended in the air by struts is a bit wierd yet sort of sick. Frontside dad slashers were had (thanks bacon) and a super fun time was enjoyed by all. I'm going back again as soon as I get my new car (oh yes, the beast is back.....)

Skate snaps here me babbers.

Wet and cold day in Bristol yesterday, so we ended up having a bunk off session at Horfield. Not the greatest park I've ever been to but a game of SKATE on the flatbank and some wheelies will make you grin through the cold.

Got this snap of Geoorge of the George aswell so not a total loss. This guy is total Brissol bhuy Dubstep quote machine. "Gunna spin some Ben Shermans inneye...."

Had a swift half and picked up a few tasty beers from The Coronation to wash down a tasty take-away curry when I got home. Cheered me up after scrapping my old trusty (but knackered) Rover for £40.

RIP "The Mobile".

Got in my last surf before a new job last friday. It's sure getting cold. Took the ol 6'4" fish in and caught a bunch of gooduns, stoked. Turned lumpy towards the end as you'll see in the pics.

Lowtide looking nay bad.

Just after I got out, bumpy but still pretty good.

Rocks and sky

More rocks ha.

Grainy turn, losing light.
