Womens surf club weekend

Last weekend 13 girls from Newquays women's surf club hit the road for a weekend surf trip heading up the coast to Bude. Arriving at a bunkhouse in Bude us girlies checked into the hostel for our first night packed full of watching surf dvd's and several drinks.

After our fun night we all got up early ready for our first morning of surfing, unfortunately the much anticipated surf did not want to join us girls and was completely flat.

Checking the tides and the forecast we were ready to catch a small afternoon swell so what better way to spend the morning than a spot of girlie shopping.

With a gaggle of girls we walked from the hostel to the beach and arrived to find some lovely clean small waves and no one else in the water. (it really was small) but this didn't the girls from having loads of fun and loads of laugh. sharing the boards around a few of us tried our hands at longboarding and others just enjoyed a good gossip and girly catch up whilst waiting for the waves.

Back at the bunkhouse a feast was cooked up by the girls and we all sat around laughing and talking about the day. another evening of surfing movies and lots more drinking followed with a few a little worse for wear for the next days surfing.

Unfortunately the Sunday didn't bring any better luck for the surf club with another bout of smaller swell so a swim in the sea pool was all the water action that we got.

The surf camp minus a lot of surfing was absolutely brilliant and I can not wait for the next one. Whilst the rest of the girls travelled back to Newquay with sore heads I continued up the coast further into Devon for a few more days surfing. Check out my blog soon for my post about my lone adventure in the search for waves.
Keep calm your in Bude
