The stars came together, very briefly. My old borrowed board, twenty plus years old, transported in a friends van five years ago from Cornwall to France. Stored at my parents in law in Montpelier. I have barely surfed in the last 15 years, but a memory lingered. After three years snowboarding off piste my love of the ‘glide’ was rejuvenated. I had a surf at Xmas time in my very old summer suit, it was a bit cold and the suit fell apart. Two weekends ago I had checked the surf forecast, in fact I checked it quite a lot. I ordered a new suit…and on one day after a poor surf the day before, the waves cleaned up, and I had quite a nice little surf, it wasn’t at all bad!
