I went to Croyde Bay on Bank Holiday Monday and immediately i went for a sponge. The waves were pretty good for bodyboarding, with a fairly good wall and a nice break of left and rights. That surf session only lasted around 20 mins though :(

Next morning i go to the beach only to find that the waves are below 2ft....more like around 6inches-1ft. And another thing, it was really messy! Loads of white water. I was anything but stoked.

The next day (wednesday) i went in, the surf hadn't really improved apart from it had more power and still was messy, there was a really big undercurrent as well! Then I got stitch so I came out anyway for a bit.

I just couldn’t believe my luck. I don’t live near the coast so I only get to bodyboard on holiday and rarely when I go to the polluted area of Sutton-On-Sea. So, for about 2 months I’ve been sitting, watching the sick surf on the Croyde-Surf-Cam and then the very week that I go to bodyboard, the moment I wait for all year and the surf and swell magically decides to stop and turn sh***y!

At least I got some better surf on Thursday….but it still wasn’t the well known surf Croyde Bay is famous for.

I thought i managed to do pretty well considering the conditions. Because it was messy i found myself mostly riding the power of the white water, occasionally along a waves wall for a small ride. I performed a few spins and nearly managed to do the drop knee stance. The wave wasn't good enough for me to learn or try to do some air manouvers or even get enough speed for it!
