Spring swell is upon us!

Yo….

Well, all western coastlines have been alight with groomed groundswell, offshore winds and back to back sunshine this past week.

It makes you appreciate the perfection that lies on our doorstep when all the elements combine. We often feel inadequate as a surfing nation to our neighbours who suck every drop of Atlantic power and are favoured by blocking high pressures. Through a winter plagued by stong on-shores, we have finally been blessed by a unsual early spring, offering optimal surfing conditions and record-breaking temperatures.

The following shots were taken at Saunton Sands, with a few from Croyde Bay thrown in for good measure. Blinding glare and awkward tides, made for tricky shooting conditions.

Be proud to be a UK surfer!
