First Autumn Big Swell rolls in on the east coast...



All day at work on Tuesday we watched huge waves and tumbling surf roll in down at Peffersands...

After work i raced home and grabbed the Moonlander and headed down to the coast and watched the first of the big swells of this autumn and winter roll in. Hundreds of miles across the North Sea these huge waves will have travelled. The power of the sea  on full display, huge waves, the roar of the water once ashore in a kind of amphitheatre was impressive and amazing to watch...




















Have i said i really like riding this bike?,
With its 5" tyres on 4" rims and narrow rear chain stays giving no heel contact issues, 135mm rear hub giving options of all available Internal gear hubs as well as Trials hubs and single speed along with regular 135mm hubs like Hope Pro 2 etc, i still think the Moonlander with it`s perfect chain alinement for 3x9 or 2x10  is still the best Fatbike for beachriding despite all the new Fatbikes coming out...
But at the end of the day it`s sometimes about where you go and what you see that is more important than the bike your riding, or so i thought this evening as i watched the power of nature...

I Shot some film with the Go Pro on the chest mount (aka `the sports bra`) and the cheap Canon compact,
