As we head into the silly season , just a quick update on what's happening in Croyde Surf Clubs Wonderland. It's been a great start to winter plenty of swell,and surprisingly mild. Monday's nights Grom club has ceased and winter beer prices are back ! Oops sorry that was wishful thinking , but there are meal deals all round at Croyde's favourite watering holes.
The next event for CSC is the Steve McKewan Memorial on December 5th , with the presentation for the event and the end of year trophies for all divisions . The social and presentation will be at Billy Budds , so if your a contestant, contender or socialite , hope to see you there !
Nationally CSCs finest have been competing literally the length of the country from Newquay to Thurso. Flora Lawton , Peony Knight and Storm Wall made the 734 mile trek to Thurso East , the UKs premiere reef break. The surf was epic, with Flora making the women's and the U18s final ,and Peony making and winning the U18s final.Storm bagged a couple of great results with semi finals in both U16 and U18 divisions.All proof that Croyde is still producing top end British Surfers. Well done all ! And a big a thanks to Damo Beveridge of Surf Development UK.

Before you hang up your stocking , hoping for an airline ticket South of the equator , have a thought for the joys of Winter surfing in the UK.
The Pros.Long period ground swells ,Consistency,Possibly solitude.
The cons.Frigid water, dense neoprene, ice cream headaches.
Why ? We all have our own reasons , maybe it's just good old British bloody mindedness, whatever your reason, great to have you on board, Welcome to the club !
