Too much screen-time
Precious little water-time.
Back soon. Maybe.

North (East Lincolnshire) Shore

Even Cleethorpes got rideable(ish) surf today, all the way up the Humber estuary. Odd as it may seem (to those familiar with that part of the world), but Cleethorpes does occasionally get waves, but only on the biggest, most well travelled swells, and only about once every blue moon. That's one cracker of a swell stomping it's way down the North Sea. Not overly massive. Just immaculately well groomed.

(Disclaimer: I'm not including The Whale-Back (sand bar) in this. That gets daft waves – and they're reasonably regular visitors – but it's not what you'd call 'accessible')

It's all kicking off in the Atlantic this week. A big low pressure system is about to drop 50mb's in under 36 hours (serious stuff). It's known as a 'bomb' in meteorological terms and it makes the sea go all wavey. If you're on a boat, in the middle of that... I wish you well. Click here.

Think I'll just post-up about Ireland from now on. Great footage here by Tim Davies.

One of the most inspiring things I've seen in a long long time

Mickey Smith. As humble and as inspiring as it's possible to be. Unmissable.
