Hightailed (great word!) to Croyde on Thursday night for my first waves of the year. It rained like cats and dogs all the way down which didn’t bode well, but I woke up to beautiful skies and the highest tide even the locals had seen for years. The wing was onshore and the seas were heavy so my surfing was a bit poor, but I didn’t mind. Just good to be out again. But man, its was cold!
