Even a cold winter’s day ( 6°C) couldn’t deter these hardy surfers and paddleboarder from the water in Porthleven.

  1. What my son is missing so badly!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Perhaps not in this weather!

      1. He is hungry for waves: temperature probably wouldn’t deter him!

        1. Heyjude says:

          When do you all depart? Can’t be long now and it must be quite daunting leaving after all this time.

        2. 8th March. We’ll be in sorting out mode after Hugo leaves on Monday afternoon. He’s been an amazing uncle, but he can’t wait to get back to his dog and the surf.

        3. Heyjude says:

          I guess he can take some of your stuff back for you. The kidlets will miss you all – you have created such an amazing bond between them.

        4. The only extra I have is a jacket, boots and a few tops. We have 60kg baggage allowance. Most of the accreted stuff was for the kids. My daughter is not pleased!

        5. Heyjude says:

          That’s a large allowance! Are you travelling first class?

        6. You’re kidding! Emirates is generous to its economy passengers.

        7. Heyjude says:

          That is very generous! Mindst you there is no way I could carry that much – my case is usually around the 12kg mark! It does have wheels, but lifting it on and off trains is no fun 😦

      Thank you Mick – do you surf?

  2. beetleypete says:

    Good surfing atmosphere shots indeed, Jude.
    I hear that Cornwall enjoyed 15 C yesterday. You will be getting the shorts out soon!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      It was warm yesterday, I almost took my jacket off as I was walking the streets in Truro. Started foggy, but the sun was already out down the hill.

    Huge waves, they must be bonkers!

    1. Heyjude says:

      The waves were fab – crashing onto the pier too!

  4. Anabel Marsh says:

    Wow, you gave caught that brilliantly – the header photo particularly with one surfer below the wave and the others above. Off their heads of course!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Surfers are quite a different breed to the rest of us.

  5. Brrrrr, that water does look cold. Nice photos, Jude.

    1. Heyjude says:

      The water did look cold, dark grey and green instead of the lovely warm blue, but it was also quite cloudy too. We spoke to one chap who passed us and he said it was actually warmer in the water than out. I’ll take his word for it!

  6. Poppy says:

    Great in the moment shots Jude … yessss * shiver … it looks pretty darn chilly to me ….

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not a surfer then Poppy?

      1. Poppy says:

        You’re SO right there Jude 🙂

  7. Wow! Great captures, Jude. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      We must have stood watching them for half an hour until my fingers were ice cold!

  8. Sue says:

    That’s dedication!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Mine or theirs? 😉 😉

      1. Sue says:

        Theirs, for goodness sake 🙄😉😉

        1. Heyjude says:

          Just wondering o_O

  9. Eleazar says:

    Wow! Those are extremely nice waves for surfing!
    I guess they were very lucky to enjoy them!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you for visiting and commenting!

    Whoops! Almost missed this! You are SO elusive. Not that I’m complaining or anything. Just saying 🙂 Super waves! Did you get a Valentine’s outing?

    1. Heyjude says:

      I had a day out in Truro on my own and a haircut! We don’t really go in for Valentine’s Day, never have. Got another cathedral to write about now!

      1. restlessjo says:

        I did get a card but I forgot to get Mick one so I improvised with some paper hearts. It amused me 🙂 Bought my own roses. £2.09 from Aldi! Last of the big spenders 🙂 Just as well because the James saga gets worse. The employer is withholding this month’s wage as a down payment on the £24,000. And yes- it’s in his contract! 😦

        1. Heyjude says:

          Ouch! He really should have just bitten the bullet and gone to London. Two years would have flown by.

        2. restlessjo says:

          Yes but how was he supposed to afford London on what they were paying?

        3. Heyjude says:

          Ask for a raise? London weighting? House share? I know, it’s tough. My daughter house shared for years, until just before her second child was due.

  11. They must be mad! Great shots, though. 🙂

  12. Joanne Sisco says:

    Great photos Jude … but I can’t help but smile at the fact that 6C here in February has everyone doing a happy dance 😀

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s all relative isn’t it! We are expecting highs of 16 degrees next week. Somewhat balmy / barmy weather…

  13. Sherri says:

    Fab surfing shots Jude, reminds me of California! 🙂 xxx

    1. Heyjude says:

      Rather warmer there though, even in winter!

      1. Sherri says:

        Yes…true. But at least you have palm trees down there 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          Well, Cornish palms which are really a form of yucca tree. Cordyline Australis. I rather like the Australis part 😉

        2. Sherri says:

          Ha…yes, I can see why you would like that part 🙂 You’re so knowledgable about botany, thanks for that little snippet, I had no idea. Did I ever tell you I had a palm tree in the garden of house I rented in Dorset when I first moved back to the UK after California? I thought that was quite ironic… 😉

I like a like, but I love a chat
