      air temp was 5, sea at 6. Strong 40mph offshore wind and hail showers and a weak 1-2ft swell. Awful conditions and nobody out except me. Great opportunity to work on staggered surf stance in the little waves, really enjoyed it

      great paddle out around the pier and over to the next bay, saw a cute seal pup on the rocks but paddled off before an inquisitive seal mum got cross with me!

      trying to get the hang of surfing still, windy day but just OK for SUP but lots of chop. 3-4 ft with sets about head high. Probably too big for my level but gave it a go. Head full of salt water but got a couple of nice rides, both straight into the beach, can't go down the line yet, it was just too choppy for me to stay on board

      Rented an iSUP and took it for a spin around the bay at Caleta to get used to an iSUP as I only use one once each year. My little fella Dan came out for a while too and had a go himself, think he's hooked..

      a super calm dawn paddle from Pooilvaish beach out to The Carrick, a rocky outcrop that is only visible at a low tide. It has a tower on it that I have always wanted to climb. Ticked that one off on this trip. Lots of jellyfish inshore and 6 or 7 grey seals out at The Carrick. A beautiful morning on glassy sea. Even bumped into a fisherman that I hadn't met for twenty years...he still recognised me though!

      Used this session to practice better paddle technique, got myself an annoying blister in the process. Fun couple of hours, and enjoyed watching some aircraft taking off and landing at the airport. There was a nasty offshore when I went open water across to Fort Island and had to go prone for 10 minutes when paddling back in to it on the way back to Derbyhaven

      went out for the first dawn SUP of 2017, I picked the wrong day! It was 07:15am and sun was yet to rise, air temp hovering around zero and 30mph east wind.
      I nearly jibbed out as it was so windy, offshore too, but talked myself into going for it. Water temp was OK with 5mm suit, booties and gloves, but once wet the wind chill soon had me wanting to head back to the van. I was so cold I couldn't get my gloves off and had to clap for a couple of minutes to warm my digits enough for them to function again...

      a grey and overcast day, was the only one on the water today. 1-2ft swell and a little chop but pretty calm considering the storm that just passed by this week
