Although conditions weren’t perfect on Saturday, the sun was shining, Matt had a new body board to test out and well, it is one of my new resolutions to get out into the waves and surf at every available opportunity. So we loaded up the motorbike and side car (adding the kayak into the mix in case the surf really was too small) and then headed down to Kennack.
Despite having been apart for a week, it felt much more like a month so we spent most of the time sat on the old stone wall chatting and just being together. Later joined by some of the National Trust’s grass chomping ponies we basked in the late winter sun and eventually (upon realizing we had half an hour left) quickly headed into the surf. It was at this point I realised I had hole in my wetsuit at the point where my back meets my butt – so it really was a quick surf! Still it was a great first day back in the water as well as great first day back in Cornwall!
