Amazing shot Kookoo! I can certainly see what you mean by letting this one go. If you're tired then a wave like this at this spot will eat you! I haven't seen this place working as well for a long time! Awesome pic and extremely jealous!

Again, diolch (thanks) for all the support for this picture - I have some others from the session (with a more artsy spin on it) but might have otherwise given away this location: if you want to see them email me with the correct spot nickname so I dont end up giving the game away to someone who doesn't know this place! littleclum@gmail.com

Sorry - when you say 'alas' what do you mean?

Sorry - when you say 'alas' what do you mean? This photo might have been carefully edited to remove any features that might have otherwise have given it away: putting up inspirational pieces now and again keeps the stoke and wanderlust levels high - please don't knock such things that are so rare in this day and age!

Ripped my knee ligaments a few days before this swell then had to watch and sulk as the whole coast got pounded. Great shot, Cymru Am Byth!!!!

Thats quite a shot, and quite a session by the sounds of it.You've really got me scratching my head here. I've clambered and surfed all around the LLyn this last 18 years or so and it seems either I've been looking in the wrong places or from the wrong angles. magic m8.

I hope to live long enough to have a session so satisfying and tiring that I'm willing to let something like that go by. Must have felt good looking back on that day with the benefit of a pint at the local that evening.

Thanks for the kind comments! This place VERY rarely gets anywhere near as good as this - you're going to have to put time into figuring it as we and others have done, sadly I'm not going to reveal it - and I'd expect others who might know it to do the same. Teach respect: seek and ye shall find!

The reason i called me poodle Kookoo was because my Kookatoo died. He too was called Kookoo.
