James and Jo

Off The Lip

Meet the message board...


Name: James Morris.
Age: 30 (2007)
Job: GIS Officer, Cardiff
Years surfing: 11 but you'd never guess.
Habitat: Whitchurch
Boards: 2
Quiver: Battered and creased 6'6 Mojo - Roger 'Kahoona' Cooper, NSP 7'3"
Local Break: Gower.
Places Surfed: South Wales, Devon & Cornwall, all around Australia
Favourite Surf Films: Big Wednesday and Blue Juice - I know its crap but...
never too old to dribbleWorst Wipeout: Night surfing at Caswell, hitting the seaweed which likes to hide on the left by the rocks, got completely disorientated and pinned by rocks having sets constantly crash down on me.

Couldn't see anything due to darkness/blurred vision. Lots of embarrassing wipeouts in Oz after buying a board too thin and sexy for me - eventually sold in Bali to pay for food and beer.
Favourite Manoeuvre: Falling whilst getting feet out of wetsuit.
Worst Surfing Habit: Listening to girlfriend - stopping me buy new board, (sorry Jo)
Best Surfing Experience: Learning in Swansea Uni whilst living in West Cross, I could walk to Langland or annoy bus drivers and did so on a daily basis for months. Now it's months between surfs - what am I doing?...this is getting like some chat to the Samaritans.
Weirdest Surfing Experience: Either throwing up in the sea at Llangenith after drinking someone's home-made 'Malibu' the night before or... paddling about (without board) with dolphins and their calf's in Esperance, W.A.
Other Interests: Football, beer aisle at Tescos, beer generally, DIY demanded by girlfriend.
