Big up the Ho! My home break :) Was soooo good last week, once in a blue moon. Everythings got to be just right, long period small groundswell, light offshore. If you can't tick these boxes go to Saunton...

If there was ever a case for an artificial reef this shot has to be it!

Agreed. The beach gets the swell but its as flat as a snooker table. Problem would be the tide range, it'd only work for a few minutes!

Are you sure this is in England- This looks very much like Wainui Beach in Raglan. Headlands to the North as well as the flax bush's in the foreground.

If England wasn't where it is half of Holland would be under water from those savage Atlantic storms!

England may rest where it is! If th British Isles weren't in the way of these swells there probably would be some nice pointbreaks in the area around Hooge Veluwe. Scheveningen or Domburg would be history.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a point for these lines to break off. Looks cool though.

the point is that 3 weeks later it did the same thing on a spring tide.
