Weather and summer.

As everyone knows, England, despite having an average summer, never does very well for surfing conditions in summer.

Or as we thought.

For the second year in a row, we’re going to get some of the potentially largest and best swell ever seen in the summer months on the east coast.

Ive just returned from the water having decided i should get the board out and get the arms ready for the rest of the week. It was huge – overhead and barreling all down the beach. You just don’t get waves like that on the East coast of England.

So, the rest of the week is supposed to get bigger and bigger… the charts look like this –

Remember today was at least 5-6 foot.

And with the radar looking like this…

Im pretty sure we will have decent overhead surf for the next week…  with a ten second period. That means getting the jetski’s out and towing-in with the sun shinning, and seeing all those secret reef’s lighting-up.

Bring it on…

We stopped in over at Bamburgh for a few press shots and then headed to Beadnell to check the surf and have some food.
