Perranporth Surf Challenge Triathlon

Perranporth 2010

Just back from the Perranporth Surf Challenge Triathlon. This year was the roughest yet. The sea was a real rough ride with choppy waves that were tightly packed and they seemed to be coming from all directions. This is the closest I’ve come to giving up on a swim. There were some real monster waves that felt about 6/8 feet tall and they were breaking a long way out so it was tough going all the way to the turn boy and it didn’t get much better swimming along the beach. I got dumped end over end on two of the incoming waves and started to walk as soon as my feet felt the sand. The bike wasn’t much better with a strong wind blowing which as always seemed to be against me for the whole bike. I have looked at my times for this race over the last three years and I have been getting slower every year 😦 Still it’s a great race and we had a lovely weekend and will be back again next year. I will post some photos soon
