Surfing since lockdown

Surfing since lockdown

We are fortunate in where we live. Even though we have just been put into tier 3, and cannot travel out of our region, we are lucky to have the amazing coastline around us. In recent years I have been mainly a park n play paddler, but with everywhere closed to us, it is time to get back on the surf which I love.

Crosby has always been a favourite spot. It’s close to home and gives a good beating when the wind is blowing. Even an hour on the water makes you ache the next day.

With lockdown here for a while, whilst we are still allowed, it is a great time to explore the local coastline.

In the last week we have been to Crosby Beach, Perch Rock New Brighton and Leasowe Bay, Wallasey.

Crosby runs on Westerly winds of 15mph, looks like New Brighton and Leasowe run on Northerly winds of 10mph.

If you get the opportunity to try the sea, give it a go. Even if you swim, it’s usually a short walk to the beach with your boat and paddle. Ask Karl Tattum about this, as he has been an expert it boat and paddle swimming recently.

Hope to get out again soon. See you on the water.
