Grey Skies, Green Waves : A Surfer's Journey Around the UK and Ireland, Paperback Book

Grey Skies, Green Waves : A Surfer's Journey Around the UK and Ireland Paperback



So this is surfing in Britain, I told myself as I grumpily walked up a slope of wet rocks and wispy beach grass, trying to keep a foothold as rain and wind both tried their utmost to send me skidding back down to the freezing beach below.

Tom Anderson has always loved surfing - anywhere except the UK.

But a chance encounter leads him to a series of adventures on home surf...As he visits the popular haunts and secret gems of British surfing he meets the Christians who pray for waves (and get them), loses a competition to a non-existent surfer, is nearly drowned in the River Severn and has a watery encounter with a pedigree sheep.

All this rekindles his love affair with the freezing fun that is surfing the North Atlantic.
