isaluteyou wrote:my worst was also a leash experience but in close to DOH surf. No one out was surfing the south side of a pier which is all reef and in big surf its a tad trickey to come in. A big clean up set washed in and i managed to duck them all but the second to last one whipped the board from under me. When the last wave came i didnt have time to collect my board so i just went under.
I came up to see my board getting washed in. I sa a big wave and tried body surfing it i pretty much got totalled and was pinned down for ages. I managed to break free and started to swim back. But with strong currents and heavy swell it was touch and go if id make it back.
Lessons learned - dont surf a heavy break on your own

If it took you 15 minutes to paddle out at Saunton (looking at the webcam yesterday, it wasn't that big and was pretty clean really - so comparatively easy paddle out) - then I'd suggest you should have stayed on the inside!
God loves a trier and all that, but using up ALL your energy getting out back is just asking for trouble.........
I'm no super surfer and my paddle fitness leaves a LOT to be desired - but if I feel as though I'm killing myself to get out back, then I know all I'm going to do when I get there is be too tired to catch anything and potentially put myself, or others, in danger.
Part of learning to surf is learning when to admit defeat.
I've seen people paddle out at Saunton and you just KNOW that they're in over their heads, but they struggle on and normally end up flailing about when a cleanup set comes in, bailing their boards or doing other dangerous kooky things.
Not saying you're any of the above, but just learn to accept your limitations and you'll have more fun..........
