A quick note because I am buried in the task of writing 40,000 words by April 27 ...
Yesterday I downed tools at lunchtime in favour of a surf at Spot G. It was about shoulder high, clean, sunny and uncrowded. In the water was Aerial Attack and a couple of others; on his way out was Jonty Henshall. I hadn't surfed for a few weeks and was soon exhausted, but had enough waves to see me nicely stoked. It was my birthday (46, good grief) but all things considered, it was as fine a way to spend a birthday as I could have hoped for, let alone one which pushes me solidly, not to say rotundly, into middle age.
More waves later, perhaps, but meantime be sure to check out the Surfing GB website and join up. The more people who get behind British surfing's revamped and reinvigorated governing body the better. And if you'd like to help with raising funds for the junior team's imminent trip to the World Championships in Panama, well, that's even better.
Lastly, and once again: apologies to everyone who received an email from me suggesting that they join WAYN. I clicked on one such email, from a trusted source at The Guardian, but lo and behold somehow invited seemingly everyone I've ever emailed to join up. This was inadvertent, and from what people now tell me it appears that WAYN is some kind of dating site. Who knows, maybe it'll bring you joy, but if, like me, you regard it as nothing but spam, apologies for my role in inflicting it.
