Jersey surf school business 'down 75%'

A Jersey surf school has said business is down 75% compared to last year due to poor surfing conditions.

Dan Harris, from a surf school in St Ouen's Bay, said there had been eight weeks of poor waves.

John Searson, Jersey Met forecaster, said it was down to a change in sea patterns and "the swells going south towards Spain and Portugal".

Prof Paul Russell, from the University of Plymouth, said the surf had been unusually bad.

He said: "From Easter onwards lots of people wanted to get in the water and virtually from the start of April there has not been any surf."
