Here in North Devon the weather did nothing to help relieve the festive hangover, it was damp and windy and the fields are knee deep in mid-winter mud, not suitable for a gentle perambulation, but with a mahoosive swell running; it was ideal for slab hunting.

This (above) was the end of Morte Point, mid-storm with a big one just about to unload. It’s difficult to say how big it is but for those of you who know the place; Morte Stone is that tiny rock being drenched on the inside!

Here’s the Stone again, in between sets and a friendly local.

Never seen this one break before, pretty raggedy but do-able I reckon, probably head high (and a paddle to die for). Click on the pix to make them bigger.

In other news, I got soaked to the skin walking home in the rain storm from hell and am now doing my Bob Fleming impersonation.
