if the north east UK got 15-20 second interval swell there's three or four places i think would end up looking like this! meanwhile, back to insane jealousy.

I was there during that swell. It was fun for a few hours until it dropped to waist and 50 people showed up. This is the end of the wave but the other two points weren't really doing anything either. This is one of my favorite waves that I visit frequently but not that day. I would recommend catching a 8ft swell in the middle of February where your guaranteed to have it all to yourself. I Immediately left and went to Huanchaco and surfed it with one other person (over head, no drift :)

This is the end of the wave ...... these guys are just waiting for the water-taxi to take 'em the half mile back out to the take-off, which is 6ft and pumping !

Yes, even world-class point breaks have their flat days. The times I've been there in June-September (Southern-Hemi winter), I've fortunately never seen Chicama flat. If it is too small for your likes, bigger waves can be found one hour north or south. Sweet dreams.

No takers because if you look at the surfers at the top of the point i would say its no bigger than 1-2ft. Looks pretty small and gutless to me!

I didn't know Austin Powers could surf... As for the four clowns having it for themselves only, who travelled countless miles, then drove thousands Km on dust roads, to spend a few nights in their tents in this remote place, they're probably waiting for a bigger set... Do you know what's a set Austin?

haha Younss'sss''ss is right ...I got fairly lynched for a slightly crooked horizon once but I learnt to better myself and conform to the norm and now I'm going straight and I seen the light too!(nice lineup too, regardless of the size.)
