Following the demise of the BSA, surfing's governing body - a new organisation has been set up to take it's place - Surfing GB. The day before going on hols, I had a meeting with them down at Fistral with a few of the bigger surf schools and have agreed to come on board to help set out the new criteria and programmes for surf schools and instructors. To be honest, it's been a long time coming, but I think between us we can really up make a difference and bring it all up to date. Lots of work to do in a short space of time, but we should be able to bring it all together in time for the new season.

I really wasn't looking forward to Lanzarote! In my heart of hearts, Bali was where I wanted to be going as we boarded the plane. But Lanzarote it was, and more specifically Club La Santa. To cut a long story short, it turned out to be an inspired choice. It would have taken something special to top our Bali Adventure last year, but even I would have to admit that for us as a family it surpassed all expectations. Could have stayed there a lot longer!
From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, everything seemed to fall into place. CLS (as it's known) is a complete one off, very inspirational - dedicated to fitness and sport - with the added bonus of being hot and sunny! All the facilities you could ever need. Loved it. We'll definitely be going back again - sooner the better!
Cycling up Tabayesco - 10k climb. Nasty!
