Blown out wave at Broomhill Sands. (19th Dec)

The forecast was for a front to go through over night and then the wind to swing to the NW between 6 and 9 in the morning. I had spoken to Richard and we were hoping to wake up with the wind already in the NW and starting to clean Camber up for a good surf. So i went to bed in anticipation of some wave riding coming up the next day. The front though was a bit slow clearing the south east of the UK. The wind never clocked in to the NW until about 9.30 so it was a matter of waiting a couple of hours and then having a sup at Broomhill sands on the dropping tide.

When we arrived there was a fair breeze from the WNW. Which is just off shore at Camber. With hind sight i should of taken the starboard pod up to the harbour arm and not gone out at the stoney car park at Broomhill Sands. The problem was though there was a lovely looking head high shoulder running to the left. So i got sucked out by the great looking wave. Richard with his waveski decided to wait a while and see how i got on. Which proved to be the right decision. Once out the back the wind was blowing quite hard and because i was supping it was hard to just not get blown down wind. I stayed out about 45 min and only managed to get on one decent shoulder and managed to get 3 bottom turns in. Not the best day i have ever had at Camber on the sup. Ol well the forecast for tomorrow is for head high waves over the high water. So a sup up by the harbour arm is on the cards.

Fingers crossed.

4th November Guy Falkes SUP

It may of been the 4th of November and they were giving a high of only 11 degrees. So Rich and myself thought we were in for a chilly surf at Camber. How wrong we were.

The sun was out, The wind had totally gone, The sea was like glass and a small surfable wave on the dropping tide at the stoney car park at Camber. (Broomhill sands).

The biggest sets were only about chest high great fun though.

Rich had his new fins in his waveski and was more than how they performed in the small surf. Even with the small surf he was pulling off some tight bottom turns on the waveski.

Off the top of the wave almost a top turn.

So all in all a really great fun surf. Then to add to it it was warm enough to sit by the van and chill out in the sunshine with Rich,Ed and sue.
