Easter was great for us coaches, but it wasn't good for business, meaning the surf was pumping, but too big for our learners to learn ! We had to cancel lessons because the beach was red flagged so we postponed classes until the end of the Easter when the conditions decreased. It was a little bit like Winter as Easter was earlier this year and the water wasn't quite warm enough for a Summer wetsuit. However, we must thank the patience of our students who waited days on end to get in the sea and go surfing when the conditions finally cleaned up, and reminded us just how beautiful Sennen can be all year round.
If you're a fan of surf gadgets, you're going to love the Rip Curl Search GPS tide watch. Not only does it give you accurate tide readings anywhere in the world at a single touch of a button, but it also boasts some very tech features that can enhance you're surfing experience each time. We're talking top surfing speeds, length of wave distances, wave count, paddle distance as well as others.
It's also completely interactive through an Iphone app so you can keep an eye on how your friends have been surfing, as well as the Rip Curl surf team (who you will automatically be following, Mick Fanning, Owen Wright ETC)
You can hide locations if you don't want anyone to know your surf spot, add pictures, rate you surf and much more.
The watch is very simple to set up and sync with your device and it is extremely basic to use.
I've been wearing mine under my wetsuit each surf and the stats have been very interesting indeed.
You attach a clip to the watch and charge it through USB and the battery life lasts for weeks !
It's pretty bulky but you can still pull it off for casual wear and it's gonna cost you just under £300.00
All of our coaches at Smart Surf have tested it and we all agree it's well worth the money.
Here's how Sam did lately.....
We will keep this short and sweet.
So far, so good, and when I say good, I mean the best wave I have ever surfed.
Above is Chicama. Where the desert meets the world's longest left hander.
I rode a wave for over a minute and it wasn't even considered a good day.

Be nice people... Sam :)
A little video edit produced by Seb Smart..Sam Smart and John Buchorski enjoy a late Summer Jam sesh.
Little Alfie took to the water like a duck. Our head coach Sam Smart gave Alf a private one to one lesson and he was up and riding within 20 minutes. What a cool little surfer dude...
