surf at hartley?? - I live in an oil can just down on hartley beach and ive never seen a single wave break here. there's no surf here. is there? nooooo. theres loads of rocks here anyway. it would be far too dangerous.

Very uncool - I very much doubt that the waves here are better than the South West. However, it doesn't matter anyway because surfing in the North East with a Geordie accent is simply and totally uncool. Sorry you could be the best surfers in the world but you will never be cool. Or pull any birds.

I Know - Yes lets face it you are right we rip and I am glad you realise we are the boys every where in the world I travel around the world when I say I am from Tynemouth they just know. So thanks for you comment and understanding we are getting old and need all the help we can get.
