Took ages to log this session as have been having problems uploading the video footage from the day. Went over with Ernie and Gerry as forcast was ok, SE rising to 35knots in the evening. When we got there it wasn't looking that great so the waiting began. By about 3:30 we could see signs of the wind picking up so I started to rig. Gerry and Ernie decided it was too bloody cold and went an parked up round the fire the surfies left going on the beach. I went out and the wind had filled in nicely but it was very cold. I only lasted about 25 mins before I called it a day. Got a real good rinsing on the way back in too. Quickly joined Gerry and Ernie round the fire to thaw out, then we hit the road home. Stopped at a couple of pubs on the way home for a quiet pint which I think was the highlight of the day for Gerry and Ernie.

Looks like a great set up. Always keen to see more photos of this place. Post the footage on the Deepfried forums.
