Normal winters day for the rest of Essex and Kent coast - what's special other than a higher tide and a SW wind?

It's winter...it's a storm...any chavs out there surfing? The sea wall did its job. I think maybe I will post a video of my neighbour's fence rocking in the wind.

Thank you Mr. Duce for sharing your video footage. Those of us who sail will find it particularly interesting.
