EISCAT solar research station. These antenae are gathering data to help predict when the sun will send out a wind so brutal that it knocks out all electrical systems on Earth. A day that'll make Y2K look like our first days at infant school by comparison!

Well protons will be protons eh; smashing into each other under intense gravitational force and releasing packets of energy as hydrogen turns into helium. Wth indeed.

There are 4000 snowmobiles, 3000 polar bears, 2000 people and 2,100 glaciers in Svalbard. This is one of them (glacier, lower left of pic)

Not quite top of the world, but not far off! 78 degrees north and -30 degrees below zero in Svalbard. Staggering landscape in this place, have wanted to here for many years.

Storm Freya or whatever the latest gust of wind was called was fun but can we talk about February for at least a couple of years please? 😬If you can see Dom on his board charging the sweet spot of the mighty Cribbar then you can cancel your next visit to speck-savers... #surf #surfer #newquay #cornwall #wave #fistral #kernow #newquay #surfphotography #warriorsofwinter #wavelengthsurfmag #carvemag #nikon #nikonphotography #bigwaves #winter #uk #mono #bnwlovers #bnwmood #noiretblanc #bnwphotography #bw #noir #bnw_captures #bnw #blackandwhite #monochrome #monochromatic

Paddle switching - why, when? This cross board stroke is a fast way of getting the paddle back on the inside rail without changing hands.
.
If you teach your clients this from day one on flat water by the time you get them into the surf it will become instinctive.
.
As a coach you're providing a vital service to your client by being firm on their technique so they learn to paddle with efficiency and power from the earliest stage.
.
16th-17th March we're running a surf sup instructor training course, it's mostly water based and with zero powerpoint presentations. Aimed at developing your open ended sup surf coaching skills, send me a DM or call if you're interested.

The surf came back then. Great Western today on a big friendly 10'6 188l NSP Allrounder; doubt I'd have ever found this section on a shortboard.

Bit of a rediscovery riding big sups in surf again. There are definitely times when it makes a lot of sense and a lot of fun, it is actually what got the sport going in the first place.

Yesterday's scenes at Cribbar - the swell had peaked and dropped a bit but this one came steaming through like a raging bull.

I sneaked out of the quantum mechanics class for a quick surf earlier, turned into a three hour battle against a 30 knots SE wind but wouldn't have it any other way...or I suppose you could have if you invoked Shoredinger's law

Thanks to @nathanphotoman (Insta) for the light fixing

P.s. the Shoredinger spelling pun was unintentional so apols if you came for the pic but stayed for that

SUP coaches...we're running a BSUPA SUP Surf Instructor course on the 16th and 17th March.
.
This course is designed to equip you with the skills, knowledge and techniques to safely introduce your client into the surf zone on their sup, and to get them on the path to riding waves.
.
We look at foundations of surf fitness, stress vs performance, the paddler's 'timeline', how to create an open ended framework for progression and of course all sup surf funtamentals and relevant meteorolical factors.
.
As SUP brands are introducing more longboards to their ranges, and the SUP foiling gathers pace, more paddlers are needing to learn how to safely approach the surf on their SUP.
.
If you are interested, DM me here or dom@surfsanctuary.co.uk.
