Here's the shots  from Fistral the other weekend when the ZapCats were racing. Thanks to Mike Nicholson (07724814085) for taking them and letting me use them here.

Fistral is perhaps the home of surfing in the UK and usually pretty busy with surfers. I think if you're going to windsurf there you need to pic a windy day and find an empty peak to avoid conflict (and if you break masts at Gwithian then don't even think about it.)
I've never had any problems with the lifeguards or surfers but will always find my own space even if it means sailing the Cribber. On this day I was sailing rocky/gusty little Fistral to avoid the ZapCats at North Fistral and the surfers at South. Luckily there's a rip at the corner to drag you out if needed (see last pic) -something I've learnt from surfing here a lot it whips you out even if you're down without spitting you on the rocks even though it feels incredably sketchy being there.
Best at Low tide with a S wind and only better than Gwithian if the swells SW and small there.


How's this for a surf wagon? I'm not jealous of my sister at all...  available for hire in the summer when they're not off snowboarding in it.
