One for you WAFI types....

Back in my yot racing days, we used to throw bits of bread into the "slot" (the gap between the fore sail and main) for gulls. The air turbulance really plays havock with their aerodynamics. In a bit of a blow they suddenly resemble a bit of cotton wool and quite often the can't get their feathers straight before they hit the water.

i hit a big bugger at 47kts just before i came into cows a few weeks ago was the funniest thing i have ever seen. He hit the front tube and just bounced strait into the water to then be swamped by the breaking wash of the boat.

Another good 1 if theyre ever hassling you at a beach barbi is 2 use a few remains of bread roll in the water, grab sum nice sized rounded off stones and hav a mate offer you a tenner if u can knock 1 of the f***ers out!

We got real close and discovered an important trick that will also aid the running down of the scum....the smaller ones r more manouverable....the big b*stards r 2 slow so shud b much easier 2hit!

P.S I donít think running over Seagulls is a very humane way of addressing the over population, did you I do run over other surfers when there is too many in the break.

We were at Gwithian yesterday with the two eldest kids, nice 2ft clean. There's me tootling along when a daft cow on a pop out drops in and landed clean ontop of my board, fin right over my foot. If she'd picked it up and placed it, it wouldn't have been more accurate.It was well crowded. Great for the kids though. They were riding the same waves, one reg. the other goofy laughing and giggling, good fun .
