hey surfers in London..wheres the surf around here??

Im from Gold Coast and just moved to London and found out that it dosn.t live up to the hype at all..expensive hole comes to mind..anyway where is the 'best' place to surf east or south of london? are there any landlocked surfers from North London keen on a surf trip? I have been to France and Portugal last week and it was sweet as..anyone wanna do a surf trip to Portugal in a few months?

Mate If I were you Id travel to Cornwall. You'll catch some quality waves there! Or head up to Scotland if you dare, cold cold waters but insane waves when its going "off"!

West coast is where its at!

If you want insane I agree with the Aussie, get up to the West and East of Scotland.. Went off on a moment and took a trip to Orkney.. Amazin place empty line ups. Really goes off so prepared to get bruised.

Drop me your email address and I'll mail you a couple of photo's. Def Cornwall for waves too.

Newquay, Cornwall, Bude and any where south west.. Beautiful coastline without the weather! Competitions and festivals happening most months on Fistral beach, Newquay. Much nicer in June,July though....see you there

Aloha UK Bros,

Looks like your Yankee cousin from Honolu'lu is moving to the cener on the modern world (London!) in Sept 2007. If you could only pack 1 board, what would it be? I've heard I'll need a wetsuit too. Please advise!

Mahalo and many thanks,

D.K. Crowell
