On a brief visit from Devon, Captain Skelly turned up at our door this morning, wound up my son Jago to the point of no return, drank my coffee, had a chat and then left to walk to Cape Cornwall and back with his mate James. No doubt they will be surfing this afternoon whilst I continue to calm down Jago, still reeling from the aftermath of Captain Skelly. Saying this, its always a pleasure to see him and always welcome, and ladies; he's an eligable batchelor that has his own Captains hat, Red Ensign to fly from the van on special occassions,is a great surfer, has a massive collection of vintage boards, is a creative artist, a salvage expert (whatever washes up on Saunton beach is his), a quiver of antique consatinas, spear fisherman and has a great dog called Bear who keeps him on the straight and narrow. Oh and he loves beer. A great catch for anyone, for more details contact Gulf Stream Surfboards between Friday and Monday 10-5pm.
