Just got a job at King's Lynn for a year, a welcome break in my career in Greece, as it will involve learning new stuff, improving the CV etc.
The downside is that I will have to forget about the luxury of having Kremasti and Prasonisi on my doorstep for a whole year...
I hope Hunstanton can be an alternative, I know it is not as windy but is it as bad as these statistics show? (see image)
I am moving to KL at the beggining of June. Questions:
1/ Will my 5/3 wetsuit be any good for the summer months or should it be a drysuit for the whole year? Any water temperature statistics?
2/ Is there any way of knowing what the conditions are in Hunstanton before making my way there from KL?
3/ I understand that when the tide is high, landing and launching can be a problem but we haven't got tides in Greece, I am not at all familiar with this, is it risky in any other way than just reducing the available beach? does it change rapidly? is it predictable? is there a forecast for it? any general advice?
4/ What is the water depth?
I am fairly experienced (four full years) and safety aware, intermediate level with 3-4 advanced tricks, I am fine with self-rescue and self landing and launching.
Any more advice is very very welcome!
