These surfers in the water knew a new trick to get their surfing kicks. They waited for the wave to hit the wall and then caught the rebounded wave back out to sea. Another adrenalin trip, I decided only to share via my camera.

Taken near Towan Beach, Newquay. It's sister picture, Herb

This i have done when waves are too big to ride as they just close out in a line you ride the rebound. steve

Hi Herbert This is a very good photo. I like how you got the waves and the surfers there as well. Steve.

Steve111 All looked pretty dangerous to me, I have to say. I have some others that show the surfing waves better but photographically they are not as interesting as this. Judging from your surfing shots, I can imagine you too doing this but do you have these walls?

Steve R -Hi Steve, nice for you to drop by again. Now you know what I was up to in Newquay. Glad you like this.

Cheers, to you both, Herb

Herb our waves bounce from the beach back out to sea when we have 3-5m wave but tooo big on the sandy bottom i wish they would put in a tire reef which they have done in a few places to make the waves break. steve
