Land of Hope and Glory

by on Friday 27th September, 2013   26770 Visits   Comments

The British surfing summer was much like any other; a dismal blend of feeble lines, windslop and millpond moments. With a pessimistic outlook nurtured by months of high pressure, many feared that September would follow the same course. Fortunately, it didn’t.

For the past week, surfers across South West England have been greeted by corduroy lines and overhead tubes on their approach to the beach, and mental image to be treasured and locked away for those inevitable flat days to come.

This album is a selection of the best shots we’ve had sent in from the swell, most of which fall between September 23/24. With the forecast still looking promising, no doubt there will be more to come.
