I have downed a few beers on that beach at Isle Ristol Zodiacman
.. the only downer is when you look at the mainland.. the locals have used a crevice in the rock to dump old cars down it etc .. fooking idiots
and if you didnt see it .. look closer next time,.. maybe then again ....dont.
Getting a weather window to do the trip you did is THE BIGGEST challange you had, and you scored
Its impossible when you dont have this, unless you have a decent RIB but then, even if you can make the trip you did,.. beaches of stone are impossible landing places, except with SIB's the few landing places get pounded at a moments notice as the wind and tide change due to the weather and currents that affect this area and are notoriously unpredictable, even with settled weather systems !!
40 ft + swells just off Priest are fairly regular
I love em
its what I grew up on
The rewards are great with the summer Isles and sometimes people who travel here wait a good few years to do them properly like you did.. Lucky you
Haste ye back
