Am working in the Isle of Man this week. Although it's dead flat, the place is pretty beautiful and there are some killer set ups. Would be a good bolt hole for Winter Swell Chasing if the plane from Jersey was big enough to take a stick.

I live in the Isle of Man and I was out this day with my friend Jules. The guys from magic seaweed didn't belive the photographer (Kenzie) that this was the I.O.M, I can assure the guys at MS that it is. The wave is called shit pipe and breaks of the back of Port st Mary pier in the south of the island, the left runs straight into the reef, no good unfortunatly (I'm goofy). And for all those who thinks it looks good, It is.

Because it is under your nose anyway and it's not just the location you need to know to get it like this.

Shame about the whole "England" and Union Jack thing, but the guys from Jersey and Guernsey seem to get lumped in too.

Shitpipe is real, so is drivers, so are a tonne of other amazing reef breaks on the rock. It's just a little rare that they break this good. I always found it strange that the latest photos page never show pics from the IOM. Why wouldn't we have good waves from time to time?

Another impressive lineup from England. Maybe I should cut back on the busts?

Been toying with the idea of destroying USA, would give us British born and bread twice as much fetch and less of a body count in our armed forces! GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!!!

Been toying with the idea of destroying Ireland. You guys are alright but your Island doesn't half block some of those westerly swells..... now where did I leave those WMDs....

that looks quality. Had a look at some of the other shots from the island - seems like you have some good reef set-ups... Wouldn't it have been great if Fionn McCool had flung the island further south, just to soak up the swell destined for Cornwall or Wales ;-)

Its the isle of man because over the years all the rest were sacrificed in order to get this wave - this was the last surf, he did try one more time but hadnt really thought it through....
