The forecast had been showing a lot of swell for friday the 12th all week. Also the forecast was showing the wind going NW. Which would bring some over head high clean waves at Camber Sands. High water up by the harbour arm looked the best bet.
On the day there was plenty of swell. The Greenwich light ship buoy was showing 14f at one time. The wind had dropped out and was light from the west. Richard gave me a ring and said he probably would not make it due to a bad back. A few ibuprofen managed to get him to the beach with his waveski though. He was so glad he did as he caught the best wave he had ever caught at Camber.
Tom from the kitesurf centre came out on his Starboard Pocket Rocket Unfortunately he bought a squally shower out with him. Just as the waves were cleaning up nicely.
Over all it was not the epic day the forecast had hinted it might be. It was however a great day to be on the water with the Sup.
