It’s been a long old shit wave/ flat spell wait but finally, hurricane Larry delivered the goods; a classic and much fabled September swell. What’s not to love; light winds, sunshine, easy surf and every man and his dog straining at the bit, wound up by Medina and Carissa’s ‘World ChampionsHip” display the day before.. […]

Combesgate candy

One of the best walks around Woolacombe at the moment is; up the donkey path to Twitchen wood and back down by the stream. Short, sweet and full of colour. The bluebells are the divas of the show but there are strong supporting roles, not least the heady smells and bright white flowers of the […]

Devon-date 27/02/21. It’s a day we will remember for a long time, a top contender for day of the winter. Super clean long range swell kissed by gentle offshores.

Woolacombe sunsets are a photographers dream. Big skies, big beach, big sand dunes and big tides. Foreground interest (usually dogs), mid ground (crashing waves or rocks at combesgate) and background – the magnificent light thrown up as our planet rotates away from the star that gives life to our galaxy. Here are a few of […]
