Arranged to meet Peter Cutts at The Dip and the direction was fine dead side shore with wind nearly all the way to the beach. The tide was still fairly low making this the flatist part of the day but cloudy and only 9 degrees :( we both rigged big freeride kit and braved the sea - when I fell on my first gybe - nothing new there !!! the sea was so'oooooooooooooooo cold I thought my heart would stop :( just over 5 degrees isn't great !!! With this being my first shortboard session since 31st Dec 2012 and fully kited out with gloves,hood,helmut etc I was only doing a few runs before returning to shore to warm up !!! Going fast was difficult in the lumpy sea but we made the best of the conditions - the sun only coming out when we packed up !!! it warmed up a few degrees then. Not a bad turn out for a cold Tuesday with me and Peter, Stephen Miller,Darren Thurston,Phil Trett,Alasdair Parker and Mark Smalling :)
