South East - There are some friendly breaks and some nice people but in general, the South Coast sums up all that is uncool about surfing: Crap waves, polluted water and naff pikey people with really bad attitudes.
Where shall I surf? - Might be moving from Devon to the South-East... Where's the best surf spot for longboard (i.e. most regular/consistent, pref beach break, size isn't everything)? Votes please!
- Every now and again there's a little groundswell that makes it all worth while but generally surfing in this area means a grim rainy day, getting battered by the gale force prevailing SW winds just to get an hour or so's window of blown out slop. So... respect to the persistence of the surfers in this area who get in and make the best of it.
crap - england is seriously the worst spot to surf ever.
surf - go surf anywere else.. this is full crowded
overrated? - Can someone explain why people see fit to slap 5 stars, and "top 30 - world calss" on dribbly weak breaks all over the southeast? I mean c'mon - the beaches here have got more stars than North Cornwall - even Hossegor hasn't given itself 5 stars! the southeast is inconcistant, generally weak, small, and murky. Yeah there are decent waves, but a little honesty guys! otherwise whats the bleading point in this website? yuor gonna learn jack shit about new spots when everyone consistantly overates everything just 'cos its home turf.Rant over.

Kingsdown surf - For anyone whos interested in kingsdown or wants to know if it can be surfed then i will tell ya it can. I have surfed it a few times and it is ok. I mean you cant expect much from here but if you get the weather right then can be good. It works best on mid and low tide so go then if you can. Also at low tide there are rocks and if the tide is low enough they will be exposed so watch your boards. There are alot of rocks to the side of ya but thet aint hard to miss. There are a few dangers but like a metal pole but you can see that clearly and rocks as i have already explained but can be a laugh if you get it right but nothing really special. I will try and get photos on here for it. Might put them in st margerets section but will title them as kingsdown so keep an eye out folks!!!

INTERNET FORUM SURF MEET - For those in the UK or planning on being in the UK over Christmas, would you like to join some people from A1surf.com's forum for a surf and drink? Perhaps the more well travelled could show photos etc.We are meeting on Esplanade Road, South Fistral, 12 noon Saturday 3rd Jan 2004. Near a Newquay surf shop owners blue Mercedes Vito van which will be parked opposite the Esplanade hotel. All welcome. We had a meet in September and had the pleasure of welcoming over 20 people. A throughly good time was had by most and we were even blessed with 6 foot offshore conditions on the Sunday. About 10 have confirmed already that they will be there this time. It would be particularly good to see the northerners amoungst you.If you have any other surfers email addresses, then please forward this invite and hope to see you there, hopefully we are not as rude and obnoxious face to face as our internet characters would have us believe! Free BBQ if we get enough people interested.
oldstairs bay kingsdown - yeah...i checked this place out on monday's SW.Mid to high tide seemed to be working but nothing at high tide, maybe coz the wind turned N.
