    Come on Paddy, give us some more details, the rest if us need some scraps to read about , these are desperate times!

    EDIT.
    Or was it really bingo, that could be my new sport.

    More details would mean me confessing that I didn't go out till late in the day, when the swell had dropped a lot, & also I went out with a kite!

    Cross shore At Brook. At 1.00 the waves were as big as I've seen for some time, some braking nearly a mile out. I guess 4.7 wind, a bit gusty. I think Jason rigged a windsurfer, but not sure if he went out. When I went out at 4.00 the waves were about mast hi, & better spaced, so you could pick out a nice one to ride. Wind was about the same.

    Shame it got dark, though the wind went NW after dark.

    I did go out on Friday at Evening Hill but wished I hadn't bothered. It just turned into a muscle-wrenching session resulting in cramp. The Parkstone meter was showing it swinging rapidly between 17 & 33 knots. It was frustrating as it's the first time out since before Xmas, & SE is usually my favourite direction down at that end of the harbour.
    Loose - the opposite of tight. Lose - the one that's pronounced 'looze'.
