Do what feels good

I’ve wasted a lot of time putting far too much pressure on my surfing. Wanting to progress and taking it all too seriously. Surfing when I don’t feel like it, trying too many different things, listening to lots of people and then getting totally overwhelmed and not knowing what to do for the best.

The one person I should have listened to most in all of this, is me.

My friend Kelly’s always telling me to do what feels good. It’s a simple concept and inevitably brings more fun and joy than doing things under tension.

Turtle Bay Caribbean restaurant and bar...tenuous but a vague link to surfing?

Surf vibes

Cue Turtle Bay – a Caribbean restaurant and bar that oozes chilled vibes, amazing food, fab cocktails, reggae tunes and the next best thing to a surf bar that you will find in Birmingham city centre. And although we couldn’t see the sea out of the window, the bar, fairy lights, Bob Marley wall mural and the smells of jerk chicken and coconut wafting from the kitchen almost fooled us into thinking that we were on far flung shores, about to step onto a white sandy beach, pick up our surfboards and head into tropical waters.
