It signifies the long, long, looong dark months ahead until March, maybe April when their is frost on the van in the morning. The heating as to come on and you find yourself wrapping long wooly objects round your neck. Next thing it will be tearing the garage apart to find stinking rubber things to put on your feet. I hate this time of year, the cold the long nights and general lack of opportunity to get on the water. It looks like we are in for some wind next week, some amazing swell according to Big Salty. I just hope there are enough people free of shackles of work to make use of it.
In the meantime, here are some lost pictures of a special day in Sidi Kuoki with Jim Cox, Jack Hunt and womens 2012 champ Debbie Kennedy. Warmer times!
