Life is back on balance ,I had a surf this morning –

just waist high onshore fun waves..I took out my 9ft longboard and had some fun.

The never ending rain in Dorset didn’t dampen my spirits, I’m feeling refreshed and happy:)

Why is it that when I’m getting changed out of my wetsuit  the local elderly ladies enjoy stopping and chatting to me?

Most ask how cold the sea is? & What a joke Boscombe REEF is!

All very amusing and light hearted.

An  Adams Retro fish surfboard 

with its “Butt crack”  repaired…not an endearing term but never the less descriptive,

as this tail design often cracks due to flexing of the two tail pods.


Notice the extra glass which was layered to allow for flexing of the tail.

Enjoy Ben:)

I spent the afternoon walking on Mudeford Beach with my family, I feel so blessed to live in Dorset being able to experience the changing seasons living by the coast.

You can just make out The Isle of Wight.
