Oh my jeez! I reckon you could do a triple backflip on a booger of you caught that. Not that I'd go that, haha.

If your wondering what's happening here. The huge was you can see is a rebound off newlyn pier. they catch the wave off the rebound and fly up the wave coming towards them. and this spot is an easy paddle out, although ive never surfed it that big :P

gstop and others called this right. That wall of water is moving to the left up a wall of rocks. They're moving to the right, about to benefit from the wash back out to sea off said rocks. Or that's my guess. No actual surf is in this pic.

Are they intentionally trying to surf here, or have they actually been washed into the rocks and are in serious danger?

This is real ... if it is the same storm that I am thinking of this was a while back and these two made the press. If you look about there is a shot of one of them caught in the backwash impact and he is about 10-15 feet in the air over the pit!
