cleethorpes has been bubbling under for two years now, its gone from a handful of riders to seeing fifty guys out on the best day we had this year, truly epic site.

the beach is a mile + easy, low tide is low and a trek. cleethorpes benefits from a superb long sand bar whcih protects the main channel at anything an hour before high tide, with butta on the inside and waves out back.
give it a spin, anything with an easterly in it.

Yeah, been reading about this "Tiggy-off-the-ground" - i need the low down:

what was it?,
how long did it last?,
was plenty of booze involved?,
who won?,
was it worth winning?
and most importantly - who's got the photos?

I know you all really had a good time, Russ texed me at 04:00am, apparently he was "Bladdered" & yet, there was no wind! - quite surprising, considering the amount of booze you guys probably got through. :lol:

Pete, you little tinker!

I was very drunk, she wanted it, so she got it. The vomiting bit at the end was unfortunate.

It was one of those moments you'd choose to let pass by - if people let you. :oops:
