Re: Surfing Alphabet

S is also for Surf Boats, left to right, my P&H Surfer II, Rick Starr's original Surf Shoe and an Ark (or Arc) squirt boat.

Another "R" - Rock Dodge at the 1969 Bude Surf Champs. The surf was totally flat the day of, so we had a race around the rocks just north of Crooklets. That's Alex Allen of Penzance CC trying to coax his boat to turn left *grins* http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll161/wr250r_wow/image2999006.jpg o...

Re: Surfing Alphabet

Another Q - Quirky late 60's photo after a trip to Porth Ceiriad, N. Wales. We had a Soar Valley Special slalom boat, an Ottersports T1 touring boat, and a KW9 Downriver boat tied on top. Yes, we did attempt to play in the surf with all 3 of 'em *grins*. We were more than a little relieved when real...

Re: Surfing the Severn Bore..?

Just checked Google Earth and looks like we got to the Severn off Rea Lane.

Re: Surfing the Severn Bore..?

I surfed the Bore twice in 1972 or 1971 - once at noon, then a moonlight run 12 hours and several pints later. I'm not sure the put-in had a name but it was just after a left bend 4 miles downstream from the Maisemore Weir. I used the original Surf Shoe made by Valley Canoe Products, which worked ju...
