A Weekend in the Otters Pocket

Another weekend away in the van this time to a different location, Budleigh Salterton in Devon for a bit of squirt boating on the river Otter. The Otters pocket is a mystery move spot formed as the tide pours over a ledge creating a powerful seam allowing downtime of 15 seconds plus if if you get it right.

 

Isle of Wight

Another great trip away for a long weekend, this time to the Isle of Wight. Its been at lest 6 months since I paddled my surf boat and with 2 ft of surf predicted and tailing off to flat seas over the long weekend I decided it would be good to take my surf boat with us.
One of our first destinations was Compton Bay for a surf to take advantage of the surf before it dropped off, this is only the second time I’ve surfed off of the isle of wight and both times i have been pleasantly surprised at how good the surf was.

The following day we visited Sea View and spent the morning crabbing off of the rocks, I can’t remember ever going crabbing as a kid and thoroughly enjoyed it, using left over pizza made really good bait.
