Arrived at Watergate Bay with a truck full of teenagers for the Boardmasters Festival to be met by a howling gale and rain lashing down – literally!
A serious case of bad timing but they all decided they just had to get out and go for it, wanting to get a good camping spot. Despite being soaked through within five minutes their spirits were in no way dampened – they went off in the downpour, very very bedraggled but laughing. No photos because it was simply too wet! Back in Tavistock the sun’s been shining and I hope it is now in Newquay for everyone there.
‘Boardies’ has been running for over 30 years now and it brings in around 150,000 people and over £40m to the local economy so it’s a big deal, set on the spectacular North Cornwall coastline.
I quite wish I was there to see Jamirouai…
Update from Boardmasters: the sun is shining!
