Woolacombe surf pumping

Surf trip to Woolacombe  which served up the goods with a pumping head high swell and strong offshore winds. A bit of crew me bro, Rich W, Paul and Tim met up at Taunton. Can't say I had a great session with really tough paddle outs and blind take offs - still if you were fit and up for it there were some great waves to be had. Only caught a few big ones. Surfed over high tide it gradually decreased over the day and the stiff SE wind dropped. Should have gone in a bit later when things had calmed down but sometimes you have just gotta get out there without the risk of conditions deteriorating. The session was a good bit of exercise and kept me in touch with the ocean. Mild with some sun and no need for gloves or hood. Photos were from after I'd come in on the dropping tide when things were looking more manageable.
