Brussell sprouts, Neil Clifton and a perfect swell

With leaden sky’s the light is flat today, thankfully the sea isn’t! Thanks to Andrew From Pickwell Barton who kindly allowed me to film his family and friends bringing in and processing the last of the brussel sprouts for Christmas. The farm has been in the Cook family for nearly 100 years and overlooks Putsborough and Woolacombe Sands, you can find out about staying on the farm here.

The featured style master was local lad Neil Clifton (the surf doctor). If you need to improve your surfing check out his website.

Thanks to Kevin MacLeod for his beautiful arrangement of Silent Night.

Have a wonderful holiday everyone

Having indulged my work ethic I’m going surfing tomorrow, Yeehaa!!!

    Hey Rich – Merry Christmas! Really like that short, and the “Silent Night” was lovely. Stay well.

    Will send photos from Hawai’i for you. Back around July for a few weeks to sort stuff out; hopefully see you then and we can maybe get some waves together again 🙂

    Here’s an idea… why not edit all this amazing footage you have from the UK & Ireland into a DVD called ‘Seasons’? I reckon it would work…
    Happy New Year x x
