Wow, what a week of SUP, Surf and Windsurf

I had a couple of sessions last week that I would rate as my best ever, and although full power flat water sailing in my shortie wetsuit on my (rarely used) 90l board would count amongst one the best, last nights wavesailing at Mothecombe offered great conditions at a spot which can be fickle at this time of year.

Windsurfing in the fun at St Johns Lake

Last week I managed to clock up:

  • 1 x Stand Up Paddle Board session
  • 2 x surfs (South coast and North coast of Cornwall)
  • 2 x flatwater windsurfing sessions at St Johns
  • 2 x wavesailing sessions (Looe & Mothecombe)

Heatwave conditions, mixed with wind and waves on both coasts have conspired to produce a memorable week and a great summer so far. Only last night de-rigging at Mothecombe did things start to feel Autumnal.

Off to France in 10 days time for my annual pilgrimage to Cote Landes and I understand they've had a good mixture of sunshine and waves so far this summer, so heres hoping for a good one.
