Gwithian / Godrevy area. Occasionally suring Porthmeor at St Ives and Hawks Point if it massive and SW. South coast usually Perranuthnoe, Praa Sands, Penzance (when massive) and a few other spots I'd prefer not to mention!!!

Had too many recently to remember. Have been longboarding so much recently that many best sessions are back to back. Had a sweet session a few weeks back (beginning/mid October). Perfect rights and lefts at Gwithers, lowish tide, off-shore glass early evening and just a few friends out on our favorite peak. Linking up moves on every wave and pushing the longboard limits
Biggest fear - Heights. So clambering down the greasy cliff at Gwithers is not my favorite thing to do before getting we - but it gets the adrenaline running nice and early!
Worst wipe-out - 2 years ago, hung over and under gunned. Took out a 6'3" in almost double over head. Was ok to start but missed a set wave and took the rest on the head. Was dragged over Gillock rocks at Gwithian/Godrevy - bumped and bruised, swallowed loads of water and ripped my suit. Went home and picked up a bigger board and tried again (a little further down the beach at Peters Point (a fave spot) and scored nice over head surf.

My Quiver

Longboard
3- Thrusther
Mark
9'1" x 21.5 x 2.25
Still Sexy
Progressive longboard for my pogression (or regression) into longboarding from short boarding. This is my first longboard, made to measure but not much cop for noseriding. So I bought a Turbo Tunnel fin which is awsome! FCS trailing fins, concave and V through the fins
squash
Vee, Concave
Box and FCS Side fins + Turbo Tunnel
Nice hard rails around the tail, rounded further up

I have ridden other longboard (friends) and mine is better (they say so too). It turns and rides just like a long shortboard. But, I can cross step and noseride. Im getting used to throwing it around!
Too many. From big surf at Hayle river mouth and Godrevy to small surf at Godrevy and Perran and everywhere
Egg

Concave, Channels
FCS Occy fins
Hard rails, slightly wider nose than the average short board, paddles in nicely. Very much a high performance surfboard. Well looked after and still good for age.

1996
1996
My first tailor made surfboard (all previous were off the rail). Awsome board, this board made a surfer of me. I progressed so much and learnt so much. Still have the board in the loft. Works real well in over head waves and have surfed my biggest waves on this board. Will still use occasionally when other shortboards are not man enough for the size!
Perranuthnoe, 1999. Double over head. My first double barrel and first barrel to stand perfectly upright. Watching the lip fall infront of my eyes. Amazing - still stoked when thinking of it today!
