... pretty weird... waking up in full sunshine with no tree or music playing; it was pretty much a normal day. This was exaggerated when Bryony, Irina and I went down to the beach - everything was open! Bars, shops - everything!! And the beach was absolutely chokka. What a day though - it was 35degrees so sunbathing was interspersed with many a dip in the (freezing) sea... wearing my santa hat aswell, of course!

There was nowhere nearby, but ten miles down ...
... dumping our bags we decided to go in search of the 'Supertubes' we had heard so much about. After about an hours walk along the beach we eventually found it. We sat around for a while and watched as only the most experienced surfers took on these crazy waves. Basically if you've ever seen a picture of a huge wave and a surfer riding inside it then thats basically what the Supertubes are. We took some videos of the surfers getting absolutely creamed inside these ...
