Yep, it was saturday, my mistake. Usually breaks like this with a big SW swell, gale force westerlies and a spring tide. Maybe twice a year if you're lucky. The swell hitting the berach was 15-20ft, Sennen was pushing 30ft that day. Awesome to watch.

I seem to remember it was bigger on the Saturday. I'll leave that for our US cousins to try out when their over.

Is that somebody's hindleg way up in the air? Did some poor American use their poor judgement and paddle out by the rocks? Hm, well I'm not surprised at all...

Pretty often really in winter, swells march up mounts bay and hit the shore hard. Any south or south westerly blow has it munchin.
