Looe returns - was my first surf since being back in this country. was good to see my local surf spot going off as it only works now and then. it was a small fun wave about 3-4ft. surfed for about 2 and a half hours before hunger finally kicked in.

Froggie - Often on a warm summers evening as the sun is setting over the bay the yellow longboard surfing legend can be seen paddling out to sea, no doubt hoping to catch a rouge wave out by the Egan Lane!!

Is the Froggie legend alive? - First I heard a friend of mine talking about a surf legend that would be living in Looe and surfing just on the sickiest days. I'm in love with this guy since I ve seen him in Pothleven on a 12' wave with a 9' yellow board. This guy got big balls, he's pretty sexy & hot. Some people says that he would have surf one of the bigest Waimea ever (45') with his longboard. Does someone know a bit more about this heroe? They told me that it's a very close friend of Laird Hamilton but there's no way to get information on that guy.
