Hey Nick,

Have you ever considered going out of Uk for surfing ?

I own a Surf House at the entrance of Baleal. Its a small
surfing vilage in central Portugal (100 Kms from Lisbon
airport).

Here you will find perfect shaped easy waves for begginers.
The water temp is still pretty warm from summer and the weather is mild.

Our Surf school has the best teachers and our gear is brand new !

Also you can fly for less than 100 pounds (return flight) from the Uk to Portugal....

This is the best advice I can give you....

Cheers !

To tell you the truth, they're right, it's a lot more expensive to stay in England
and surf and for the time it takes you to get from London to say Cornwall, you could be in Biarritz or Lisbon (in half the time and it's cheaper, plus cheap flights), where you have a better chance of getting good waves.

I've pretty much just started surfing too, and now am back in London and can't get my mind off it. I've surrendered to the fact that surfing in England isn't happenening for me, but am definitely going to be travelling for it. 50 pounds or less to Biarritz... that's a winner.

There is a surf club in london isnt there you can pitch together to get a lift?

Im sorry, surfing requires a lot of work and fitness and getting a jet out somewhere once in a while isnt going to help your progression. Simple solution, move out of London to where you can surf regularly. If you are not that serious quit a sport that requires this much work, take up kitesurfing or something.

Sorry realised previous statement was a bit harsh but I would make sure you keep the fitness up while away from surf by swimming, balance etc so you are not a liability when going to good breaks.

Hi there, once again head out of the UK or if you are in London Brighton gets some good waves from time to time when you know where to go. Today is going off down here.
