I'm Matt from Croydon. I started bodyboarding as child on my grandads wooden sheet of ply when on holiday in the south west. After a couple of polystyrene and foam bords I got a Mach 5 and some manta fins. My favourite beach is Harlyn Bay but Croyde, Woolacombe and St Ives hold good memories for me. I lived in the Gold Coast for a year at surfers paradise, where I boarded every day it was possible. The pinnacle of my boarding experiences was a couple of sessions at Snapper Rocks in 2013. Since then I have boarded only once. A chance Sunday at Harlyn where conditions were good. I've joined this group with the hope of having a board with somebody. The weather has been bad recently and I'm hopeing that there may be some half decent waves this weekend between Brighton and Portsmouth. I would head down the witterings or hayling island, but any advice would be good.
