I was ther last week from low tide. Scum was pretty much all up the beach with the odd clear patch. Couldn’t smell anything and didn’t suffer any symptoms that others reported. The beach was very clean and no debris bricks etc were visible. I’d forgotten how good the sessions can be there and made a mental note to use it more often. I made sure I landed the kite on a patch with no scum or above the HT mark...

Scum in full force ! Still trying to get to bottom of chemical stink half way along beach . Meeting NRW , NPT and St Modwen on Friday . No debris like rocks or bricks at mo but one big swell will change that as more of the rubble that was dumped when the sea broke thru where the car park is now (years ago) is eroded out of the dune. I would give the car park 3-4 years before it’s in the drink !

I’ve now had so many nasties I don’t tend to go in much even tho it’s on my door step .
