Dont worry about the cold and a little willy, go and buy a drysuit. Just dont forget you have it on and pee yourself.

Drysuits are such a personal thing, both Sarah and I have tried them and they are just not for us...in fact I hated it.
Maybe I'll change my mind one day but I can't see that any time soon.

We still have a Mystic of Sarah's for sale if anyone is interested?


A good wetsuit and boots and I'm toasty...still not worn my new Mystic Legend (or gloves) yet as it's been so mild.

ps how many surfers do you see using a dry suit?

Rest was as good as it gets this morning, cross/slight onshore
Sarah went out on the 4m Junior Pro first but not quite enough when riding downwind on the waves, we ended up on 6.5m (my magic kite)and 7m

Helipodboy and John arrived later but it's dropped right off now.

Incoming....
Confidence is increasing for a particularly stormy spell of weather to develop during the end of the week and into the coming weekend, especially across more northern areas of the UK. Two areas of low pressure are forecast to develop across the N Atlantic, in conjunction with a powerful jet stream, and pass just to the north of Scotland on Friday and Saturday. The low pressure on Friday will bring gales to Ireland, N England and with perhaps severe gales to Scotland with winds gusting up to 60mph to 70mph. Further heavy rain will accompany the strong winds to produce poor traveling conditions throughout Friday across the northern half of the UK in general.

Of particular concern though is the second area of low pressure for later on Friday and into Saturday. This feature is currently expected to deepen into a very powerful low pressure as it tracks just to the north of Scotland into Saturday. At the moment N Ireland and N England are at risk of winds gusting up to 50mph to 60mph, especially across coasts and hills, with perhaps locally higher gusts. However, across Scotland winds gusting up to 70mph to 80mph are possible. There is focus on central and northern Scotland and the N Isles to be at risk of potentially extreme wind speeds on Saturday with gusts up to 90mph to 100mph possible. Structural damage is possible and widespread travel disruption is also possible too across central and northern Scotland and the N Isles during Saturday. The very strong winds will be accompanied by further heavy rainfall at times too with perhaps some localised flooding, but emphasis is on the strong winds.

Following the strong winds and heavy rain on Saturday will be an increasingly cold NW’ly wind. This is set to bring frequent wintry showers to Scotland, Ireland and N England as Saturday progresses with perhaps blizzards on high ground and some accumulations by the end of Saturday and overnight into Sunday. This scenario will be monitored and a separate Advisory will be issued for this if required later in the week.

If Windguru and XC are to be believed, it looks like it will drop off after midday. To go to the gym or take a punt....?
