Post New Club Surfing Weekend Reply with quote
In case you've not noticed, Roger has added an additional surfing weekend at Westward Ho! to the programme. It's coming up fast - 17th/18th July.

Excellent opportunity for beginners to greatly improve their balance in the boat, though there may be a few swims !

Excellent opportunity for those with more experience to have a go in a proper surf boat - you won't believe the difference. Skern Lodge hold the Mega Surf Kayaks demo fleet and you can take one out for a try. Word of warning though, they are very addictive.

Hi everyone. I have again offered to organise 3 surfing weekends on behalf of the club. Thanks to the kind hospitality of John Watson we will again be basing ourselves at Skern Lodge and enjoying their facilities. John has a selection of Mega surf kayaks that we can use free of charge providing they are not being used for a course (unlikely). This is a great opportunity for you to try one of these magnificent boats so please give it a go, it’s a real experience. The first of these weekends will be 17th & 18th July. The second weekend will be 28th – 30th August and the final weekend is 18th & 19th September. The camping fees at Skern Lodge are £4/person/night. If you would like to come along to the 17th & 18th July weekend please let me know so that I have an idea who is likely to be joining us. If possible please reply on the forum, if not send me an email (roger.2.palmer@bt.com) if you would like to come down and join us.

Having spoken to Skern Lodge about the demo boats, they should be avialable but they would like them booked in advance i.e. don't just expect to turn up on the day and get one. Come on, let's have a whole gaggle of surf boats on the water (what is the collective noun for surf boats?).

John

Hi Woody,

Thanks to Heather for the surfing addition to my avatar.

Not sure they'll have a boat for you, just spoken to Skern and they are going to leave a message to try and make sure that the available boats are left for us if we want them. Unfortunately to quote them "Roger keeps organising weekends when they are away". So it looks like there will only be 3 boats there, a plastic Neutron, a composite Neutron and something of a similar size that I've forgotten. I think you may find the Neutron a bit small - that's why I've got a Megatron !

John

I'd like to come next weekend and give surfing a go at westward ho. Plan to pitch up saturday morning and camp saturday night. The purpose made surf boats sound great fun. If anyone who is going would be able to lend me a neoprene spray deck I'll buy you a pint saturday night. Shocked Very Happy

We might be up for this.

If we arrive on Saturday night we are coming. If you don't see us, we are not.

Further update on boats as I was surfing with John from Skern yesterday. The one I had forgotten was the Boost, in a nice pink, which is a bit smaller than the Neutron but they should also have a Bullitt which is bigger. Get your name down for the Bullitt Woody.

Cheers

John

Thanks to everyone who came along. I hope you enjoyed the experience and would like to repeat it. Hopefully August B/H will bring the good weather for the next weekend away at Skern Lodge.
