Leaving behind the rain of England to catch the Plymouth to Roscoff ferry was followed by some difficult driving conditions with heavy traffic and difficult weather for several hours of the 550 mile drive South to the sun and surf blessed Landes region of South West France.

The first stop was Mimizan Plage where we greeted by temperatures in the high 20s and chest high surf. After a quick surf and play in the shore break with the kids, went to Bar Le Surf for some late lunch, a place I have been frequenting since 1992!

Windsurfing St Johns Lake 21/7/13

Written by Salinated. Posted in Magazine, St johns lake, torpoint, windsurfing

We’ve had an unprecedented 2 days of sailing in F5-7 winds in board shorts this weekend as the heatwave draws to end with the breakdown of the high pressure generating some good Easterly winds.

To turn up in my board shorts, sail for a couple of hours and and then drive home in the same shorts – well it just doesn’t happen does it? Especially not in Cornwall.

Stunning day down Mazza on the SUP. No waves, but super warm and super clear water. All you need is a SUP board and a waterproof camera for days like these, Managed to paddle around St Michaels Mount at high tide and shot some underwater video.
