7`3" bic mini mal
South Wales - Gennith, Caswell, Langland, Aberavon, Rest Bay, Newgale. Going travelling in Thailand in November so might give it a bash if I can find a board & a decent swell!
Favourite Surf Films:
Point Break, Blue Crush (Girls film I know but the life they live is just so chilled!) Lord of Dogtown (skating film but its a classic!) Billabong Odyssey.
Thinking I was clever whilst learning and spending 30 minutes or so trying to paddle out in a storm just to start paddling, with a lame effort of trying a pop up and go crashing down, hurting my back badly in the process. Had many board-to-head accidents too!
...lets take it slowly now
Worst Surfing Habit:
Having eyes to big for my ability
Best Surfing Experience:
The first time I got up on my board / Also down Gennith on a warm summers evening, surfing with one of the best sunsets in the world.
Weirdest Surfing Experience:
surfing @ 2am with a full moon (ok until there`s cloud)
