In the water again at Whitsands!

I was so keen to get in the water again this weekend! 5 weeks out of the water and I couldn't wait for a session no matter the weather! Though it felt cold with NW winds I was pretty surprised how warm it was (with suit, boots and hood!). Whitsands has real potential for an amzing down the line place, but it needs a good wind due to the rip and some south swell. It is a mission walking down and up the cliff though, I still have a badly pulled shoulder from the walk carrying my rig up the cliff! Its like Highcliff on steroids! Anyway the session wasn't great due to the complete lack of wind (it was coming and going), and the rip taking away any wind there was! But it was nice to be out with the sun setting. Here are some go pro shots from the headcam:

Finally, a bit late coming, but a pic of the new Simmer Icons, they are awesome and light!

Next week I am off skiing to Andorra, I can't wait! Merry Christmas everyone!
