all fair in love and surf - i grew up in south cornwall and surfed some cracking spots never gave the location away. i grew up and now make a living in exeter and try and hit different spots where the swell is working. why do people think they own certain spots because the live there. Travel and adventure is part of surfing, any surfer worth their salt should always be on the look out for new spots, home or away. if you went to scotland and got booted of a spot by the locals you would moan like a bitch, so why do people do it down here. what goes around comes around!!

Cheers dits.... - Im getting increasingly fed up with fellow spongers and pencil pushers argueing over waves and breaks.. grow up! I had m first bit of agro off a surfer the other day and i just thought it was pathetic, bring out the trumpets!

cars targeted by local male bodyboarder - Increasing amount of peoples cars are being covered with surf wax, the problem is so bad it has now been reported to local authorities. Fellow surfers saw him in the car park on saturday morning ; approx 5'8 - 5'11 age 22 - 25 wearing a beanie hat,denim jeans, unshaven with a round face, Does anyone have any ideas who he is? We understand it gets busy at weekends but what he's doing is classed as vandalism. Rumour has it that spy cameras will be put up in and around bossiney car park to catch the vandal,
