to be fair, it wasnt quite as epic as it looks , really long lulls , pretty busy, but it did get a bit bigger after the pic was taken

Swell came early this day - meant only 4 guys out at my local spot - 5 hours of 3 foot super glass. if only we had just one day like this per week. when the conditions are right, i still maintain that the UK delivers great waves. Plus its even more rewarding for us islanders that struggle through onshores, 6 mil rubber, hoods and fucking awful traffic jsut to get into brown waters. There is a reason why this is called GREAT Britain and we are IT.

Surfers that side are definitely more committed than most. Going out in cold shitty conditions to surf waves that most here would not even bother riding. Seriously you guys deserve a good day a week like teets was talking about for braving the cold etc like you guys do. I complain when it drops below 20 degrees.

Ok so we don't have brilliant weather all year round, but I still think that you are being a bit on the harsh side to say it's hell. Are you having a bad day?:)

You say bitterness i say honesty. Summer is nice but the rest of the year is just plain crap.

Sorry to put a bit of a downer on this awesome photo, but as you all know photos can be deceiving..... And many photos i have of the west coast, look awesome... however the surf lacks punch and the sets rarely hold up.... Wasn't there on this day, and gutted i missed it.... Roll on Bali....
