Atmosphere

I surfed back in the mid 90's on what can only be dicribed as the calm after the storm. I had checked shitsands to find 20-30ft waves and made my way back around to plymouth sound to check a few spots. Drakes bowl was 6ft and going off!loads off empty pits.

Whitty 20-30 ft - Shut up you absolute tool. In 20+ years i've never seen Whitsands at 20-30ft, and certainly nothing near to that size that was clean enough to surf. And as for "Drakes Bowl", all it ever does is break on to dry rock. Been past in many times on a fishing boat. Not that it matters, because you won't be able to hold position because of the currents. Now, get out of your little dreamworld and go find some spots that do work.
