I was also in that line up on Saturday, with no gloves, and as soon as the sun went down my hands turned blue. Took me 5 minutes just to get the velcro unfastened on my boots! Made sure the gloves were in the van for Sunday though. Which was equally as good. Great photo of rare occasion.(clean and uncrowded)

I was out at about the same time this shot was taken in a 4/3 plus i had forgotten both my flushy and my gloves. Don't think the air temp crept much above freezing all day. Fair to say that as i didn't want to miss such amazing waves (so stayed out for 3 hours)I was worried that I had grown a fanny by the time i got out

Great day out but it was so cold I had 10 minutes before chattering my way back to shore!!.. I think something around the head is needed but it was as good as it looks!

Great shot, but Saunton Sands is softer than marzipan and drinking Shandy on a friday night. Just to the North however...
