‘Catching the Waves’

IMG_8078The upgrade in our weather warnings today from the 75mph winds associated from the remnant effects of the powerful ‘Hurricane Gonzalo’ were not going to put these dedicated few off their passion for wind and kite surfing; on some of the best beaches here on the South Coast.

The winds were indeed strong enough to bring down several trees in our area; and three women in the next county to us were all sadly taken to hospital after a tree fell on to them.

It also claimed a life of a woman in the City of London when a wall collapsed. It caused a multitude of flight Rail and Ferry cancellations and thousands of passengers faced lengthy delays to their daily commute.

However, when your enjoyment revolves around choppy seas and strong winds coupled with the excitement of skimming across the surface of the sea then you can easily begin to understand why so many people were out today catching these waves.

‘Bracklesham Bay’ certainly is a great place for all water sports including kite surf, windsurfing, and surfing. The latest sport of paddle surfing is also done along with diving.

  1. We had some strong winds over in my neck of the woods today, slightly east along the coast from you, but nothing that devastating. Maybe we’ve got it yet to come. Nothing too unusual though, although the hurricanes tend to hit us around August-September time don’t they? They’ve come a bit late this year. I think Bill was on the other side of the hurricane it to us. I could hear the wind howling in stereo as I was talking to him on the phone. Sad about those women.
    Great shots though Bob.
    Wishing you well
