Newquay - Had a good little session at Porth, really clean 2-3 footers when Fistral and Watergate were blown out. Wasn't expecting much when I came to Newquay so pleasantly surprised. Pretty chilled out crowd too.

arron e + smiley sam - we enjoy romantic walks along the headland hand in hand. Then we hit it large when that spring high comes around on our bodyboards. Then when the tide pulls out it gets a bit mad for us so we go to the harbour where there are plenty of mega waves to be had.
