Swell looks set for a return visit on New Years day, which is a great omen for the new year. Enjoy and get out there. Happy New Year

Nice day...for some

Got a little lost today in my own vibe, and drifted from the peak. It was a strange setup, with the sets that did push through, sizeable enough to keep me off the peak. That combined with a paddle directly back into the rip, had me looking like the man who hasn't really been on top of his surfing for some months now.

Cold Turkey

The swell machine switched back on, and I for one am not missing out just because it was sub zero. That said the swell was bigger than Sunday and warmer too, so no complaints. A perfect day !

Merry Christmas

Couldn't think of a better christmas present to share. If you haven't got all of Sufjan Stevens albums yet, then maybe start with 'Chicago'.

180ยบ SOUTH Trailer from Woodshed Films on Vimeo.

I have to confess that whenever I see any Patagonia sponsored adventure, I just want to go out and buy their stuff. Funny huh ?

New direction

The past three months have seen a change for the worst on my personal development, and sadly lacked content from which to blog. I have been bashing away at a troubled project and often left wondering why ? Its been a bit of an uphill struggle but the end is in sight, and with it brings the hope of catching up with friends and family and playing with new toys. New Cameras, lens, and super duper blanks made from Sucrose (lighter, stiffer, and more friendly for our wonderful planet), not to mention the relaunch of the highly sought after Cake Boy - soon to be Seedhouse Shapes or surfboards or perhaps just Seedhouse. I am still trialling logos for him, and will post one up very shortly. Justin's boards were amongst three of the 6 man team that won the National Interclubs, and this secretive surfer still remains a mystery to many. Google free, and free from the chatter of the Interweb, any enquiries for North Devon's nicest and perhaps humblest shaper please email me to get in touch.

Radio 4

Radio Four is in part my main reason why I live in England. Its shipping news, and general discussion is so quintessentially English, so when I heard James Naughtie (pronounced Nocherty) on my morning commute, usually with flawless delivery, I couldn't stop snickering for the rest of my drive.

Stab and Dodge.

If you have seen this elsewhere, apologies. But it made me chuckle and I just thought it was too good to pass up. Besides no one wants to see cold, flat North Devon coast line (with SUP's).
