But I would be a bit pissed of at websites cams etc letting eve...

BACK TO AV Oh Well the Golden Girls (as the senior North Avers are known) will have to give up putting sHit on Laz - and his immediate family - for his infrequent surf reports crowding the beach out. They have technology to blame Wait for the Baywatch style public meeting, or the new political party...

You would buy a lottery ticket if you got waves this time of year at Angus. Check the Swell net site it has reports and forecasts for the area.

Bear - you want it so do it. Sounds like you have a bit of momentum and 3 years is not that long
It's not right to let the fear of regret stop you. There is plently of opportunity to travel and explore after 27, even after 30 years of age, even after 40

Geez Porky thats a big call labelling me a lefty on the basis of a basic human right!!
You would be WRONG big time - I don't support anything Hicks has done but i cannot support denying an individuals rights to justice.
