    Yeah I was meant to go last year but it clashed with a mates 30th that had already been arranged. So hopefully they come back to Ireland again this year.

    :D Sounds like you had a belter dude!

    Glad it picked up for you all on the Sunday, I popped over to say hello on the Saturday but it wasn't really worth getting wet for the couple of hours we were there unfortunately. Really good bunch of people on Barbers' weekends mind, not only Rob and his lot but all the local spongers that you get to meet through it as well. Anyone enlighten you of a few new spots to try dude?

    I'd reccomend getting yourself down to his place over in newquay for a weekend as well. Always a good crack :)

    Fair enough dude, sounds like you've explored the Gower well. Yeah team taff are a quality guys (and gals) fair play. Rode many a wave with 'em :) Plenty of breaks to explore down by Newquay, and that tidy wedge too ;)
