Wow, and you are surfing with no fear? What a wall! How high is it, about 10m? Beautiful daring shot! Jan

Steve Paxton on February 5, 2009

you see it look very big but was about 2m high we only get your size in winter and they get very unrideable on this beach no reef to use.

WOW!!! Nice shot. We don't get waves like that on the south coast of England.

Steve Paxton on September 6, 2009

studio4t1 i was down south last weekend saw waves that made these look like tiddlers but you could not ride them way too stormy. steve

TonyWalker Studio4t1 on September 6, 2009

WOW If there much bigger than these they must be huge. When i said we dont get waves like this one i ment ours lean forward more at the top This one gose strait up. Awsome must be good for Surfing. Sadley we cant surf on our beaches on the South Coast UK. Although Bournmouth were talking of installing an artificial reef. tone.

Steve Paxton on September 8, 2009

Tone this is a at the point of the wave about to break as a line. we could do with artificial reef too we are a sandy beach for mile we have to rely on shifting sands to get our "reef". steve

TonyWalker Studio4t1 on September 9, 2009

Steve the shifting sand seems to do well, the waves are great. Tone.
