so this weekend i went up to south west wales for the BWA Welsh competition The forecast was looking really good so everyone was really up for it when we got up in the morning there was about 10 mph of wind and a 4 foot mush swell and bang on shore. we went to breathing
at half 8 and they said when the tide drops the waves will get better and the wind should be picking up and said they are going to do an expression session to see what everyone can do. I went out on my 5.7 and 105lit and dident get planing so just tricked around really and then after the expression they call it off untill 12 and by then the wind had drop even more so me and tom Bennett went out for a surf and got a couple of nice waves and then dad come out and joined us and after that we pack everything up and we went around to new gale for another surf. me and tom went out and we spent a couple of hour packing so it was a bit rubbish but still nice to get out there. The next day there was no wind but a bit of swell left so we had a little prize giving at at the cafe and i ended up winning the amateurs and won a harness so was pretty happy and then after that we went back round to new gale and had a good surf they are going to hold the event again on the next good forecast so hope full i can make that too. and that fro jim from pura vida and buck and luise

So yesterday we went down to great yarmouth.. On the way down we stopped for petrol when we was half way there and as dad went in to pay for the petrol he realised he forgot the wallet and left it sitting beside his bed at home so he haveted to call mum and get her to pay over the phone so clever daddy gave all his card detials out to the whole of great yarmouth nice once we had sorted the 1st dilema out of the day we got back in the car and continued realising that we had no money to get food or anything all day exept one pound! so we carried on driving for a while then checked out scratby it was looking well good when we 1st got down there but lex+dad wanted to go check out californias first but it wasent looking that great there so we headed back to scratby and took max for a walk and all decided that it wasent looking great and was all freezing and starving so as we went back to the car a rossis ice cream van decided to park itself next to us,tempting! haha! we carried on driving round trying to find surf, we went to check out a windsurfing break (without any kit!) and i fell off the wall into dogs poo, Nice one Megan! so we decided to start heading back through the strange dead end roads, then we finally found a cool spot called Lowersoft, by this time it was about 5 o clock, so we was all getting very hungry by now and just our luck there was a KFC+fish and chips to the left of us and two the right we had a MC DONALDS so we had amazing smeelllss heading our wayyy! but we all decided to go get wet considering dad drove around for about 5 houres (mise as well gone scotland or somewhere!!) i got freezing within the 1st 10 minss so i got out and took pictures of the boys instead! Turns out the boys said it was one of the best surfs they've had in our part of the country so the day ended on a high note after all! so we all rushed home to a nice roast dinner 'NOICEEEE'!

So below we have aleksy's amazing photography of moving cars! he diddnt quite understand that your not meant to follow the car when taking the pic!
