heaven on earth - i spent the majority of my time surfing gromits and baggies with my brother (turtle) and his sidekicks the cherries and let me tell you that place for me will always be the same dodging those twats that think they can crew fishing boats and throwing abuse to the life guards, getting crunshed on the freak set at summer on the bank and freezing my stones off in winter cause who the hell had a bloody wetsuit yeah baggies during the eighties ripped and thats how it should be remembered a p----d of surfer living in sunny scotland
