Oh I scoped out one of Englands best secret spots Godsave and gave those pommies a lesson in Aussie power surfing they won't forget in a hurry.

somewhere in North Cornwall.

they all tried to stink-eye me out like it was Newport beach on a Monday morning.

actually that coast was almost more depressing, because I kept expecting real waves and didn't realise Ireland blocks most swells.

Was this your fabled go out at millook on the borrowed minimal? I’m sure you’ve written before about what a great surf you had there when you weren’t trying to be all tough and hard-bitten in front of an antipodean audience

Anyway it’s a shame. Had you spent a bit more time figuring it all out and a bit less time on the bong you’d have had some decent waves

didn't get on the end of a single joint or bong hit Godsave.

but yes, it was the fabled mini-mal at Millook.

two wetsuits mind you.

decent waves; nah.

even the fabled English sense of humour and banter I found a little underwhelming.

just a lot of half dead cnuts nursing hangovers on the weekends, mostly and then waiting for Friday to do it all over again.

Should have headed down to South Cornwall Steve.

I'm not sure the Australian is wired up correctly to negotiate the complexity of tide, wind and swell that characterise many UK surf spots. It's a bit like rugby league v rugby union

you've done so much better trolling in your heyday Godsave.

mate, you'd be lucky to get out of a rip at Bondi.

there ain't that much to the UK swell window and the (north) Atlantic storm track.

the lows stand out like dogs bollox.

tell you what if you want like for like.

I'll forecast England/Wales and you forecast east coast of Australia.

Oh the macro is easy enough. It's the micro that I think the more, ah straightforward, Australian would struggle with. I'm not judging you for it, just stating facts

I like that you are always trying to deflate the superciliousness of the antiopodean surfer- thats a noble project. It's just the inherent inferiority complex of the UK surfer sometimes makes it all sound a bit tinny and desperate.

You don't need to prove anything to us Godsave.

Its probably a good thing that GSTQ does't head down under, he would spend the whole time compiling and reenforcing the vision of a stereotypical pommy whinger. First it'd be the heat and flies, then the vast distances need to travel ... then he'd start banging on about the uncouth inhabitants and their lack of culture, before asking why he can't get chips and gravy with his Chinese take away.

To be fair, the flies, the heat, the tyranny of distance, the uncouth inhabitants, the lack of culture and the lack of UK/Asian fusion food is a real issue in Australia.
