Surfing Lessons at Compton

The Sunday surf lessons saw Chris decide to teach at Compton, Hanover Point. Chris first takes them through the basics on the sand and then into the water. They all caught wave after wave, having an absolutely fantastic time. The pictures below speak for themselves.

A huge thanks from all who participated to Cathy Budden and the West Wight Landscape Partnership for organising and putting on surfing lessons with ISurf and Chris Mannion. Anyone interested in Surf lessons Chris can be contacted on 07968 609 169 or through his website iowsurf.com.


Surfing Lessons at Shanklin

A huge thanks from all who participated to Cathy Budden and the West Wight Landscape Partnership for organising and putting on surfing lessons with ISurf and Chris Mannion.

With the strong wind and swell Chris had decided that the best and safest place to surf on the Saturday afternoon was at Small Hope Beach in Shanklin. Chris initially takes them through the basics on the sand before they all enter the water and it wasn’t long before there were hoots and high fives with huge smiles all round.

The only way home

I have been told a story about Paul Taylor, Dave Gray & Chris Salter once doing a trip to the west country. At the end of the trip and time to think about returning home they realised that they were all skint, totally penniless. The boys soon came to the conclusion that the only way to get home would be to try and raise some money some how. To get enough money to get home they were would have to sell something. They decided to draw straws and unfortunately for Dave Gray, he lost. Dave had to sell his wetsuit as a means of raising cash so they could get home.


Barney Barnes

From the Virgin Islands they traveled onto America, working their way across to the west coast. They stopped in North Carolina to stay with Barney’s sister Rosie who was at university there. Word had got around about Barney and Chris’s travels through Europe and across to the Caribbean and onto the U.S.A. and the university president had questioned Barney’s sister Rosie where they would be staying. When he found out that they were staying at her small flat he made arrangements for them to stay at his mansion. The staff were never to remember Barney and Chris’s name properly and they soon became known as Bonnie and Clyde by the them.
