A quote from the film Big Wednesday that the actor Jan – Michael Vincent starred in :

Matt Johnson:
I don’t wanna be a star. Have my picture in magazines, have a bunch of kids looking up to me. I’m a drunk, Bear, a screw up. I just surf cause its good to go out and ride with your friends.

I remember watching this film at the Poole Arts Center with the

Wessex Surf Club a few decades ago 🙂

if you haven’t seen this movie please do,

I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I still do.

Thanks again for the structural repair on my board today Jeff. Perfect job. Looks as though it was never damaged in the first place . Gaz

support over the last 5 years,

This board’s name made me laugh,

it was in for a rail repair…

have fun in the sun.



Today was a day off mixed blessings, time to admit my old West wetsuit having survived four winters was fit for retirement.

But blessed with a new wetsuit 🙂

The knowledgeable staff at #sortedsurfshop know their wetsuits,  their wetsuit warehouse aptly named the #wetsuitcentre is where Jeff and his staff patiently helped me find the ideal winter wetsuit – be prepared to try on a few brands to find the ideal fit for your frame.

I now have a C-Skins Hot Wired 5×4 

I’ll add my review of this wetsuit later on in the season when the sea temperature fully drops out.



This last week its was relentless Rain – thanks to El Nino –

everyone I encountered moaned(s) about it.

This made me laff
