Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday

Saturday had an awesome 5 hour surf, quite a few nice rides. Even got a complement from another surfer!

Sunday I actually got up at dark to go and surf the messy, stormy 6-7ft conditions at Polzeath. Managed to brave it for 3 and 1/2 hours. It was brutal. Had a few gnarly wipeouts (and I think its safe to say, a few near death experiences!) Think my best ride was the wave in!

Monday. Conditions were amazing at Polzeath, Clean and slow breaking waves... Unfortunately I was pretty exhausted from the previous 2 days! However, I had a few good rides; and was lucky enough to experience close up dolphins!!! Surfing with dolphins! Once in a lifetime chance I think! It was amazing being within 20 or so metres of such awesome creatures. After seeing the dolphins I had a good ride. Quite a few bomb sets as it got darker!

Tuesday. Clean, clean conditions again! I think I'm safe to say that there were some mini barrels at Polzeath aswell (with photos to prove!). Despite the good conditions I decided to sit out and photograph some material for my project (which if you havn't seen yet look here! http://www.behance.net/Gallery/Surf/315790).

Managed toget a shot of a bit of a barrel; over on the right hand side near the rocks (low-mid tide). Unkown surfer.

Job WANTED: Enquire within

I'm a mature 18 year old college student with an unconditional university offer looking for work on Mondays, Tuesdays and one weekend day. I have 11 A* to C grade GCSEs, 3 A Levels (A,A,C grades) and 2 half A Levels (A,B), all key skill certificates and have nearly completed the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.
Previous work experience and employment includes Assistant Surfing Instructor, Kitchen Porter and Manual Labourer.
I am trying to save money to go to Canada to do 4 weeks of volunteering work at a National Park in the British Columbia region.
I have been looking and applying for jobs for the past few months and havn't had much luck. All I want is a shitty supermarket or cleaning job or similar. I think I need to drink water from a lead tank though before I can get one of those jobs.
