When ye miss opportunities like this it's one of the VERY few times I think I should stop drinking. Looking at this weekends forecast I may drown my sorrows!

I reckon I didn`t...... :-) I feel no need to embelish my photography or increase the true size of the swell/surf, I`m quite confident in my judgement here.

There was nobody on it the following Monday morning. Too heavy. Round the corner was a cross shore shoulder high wave with a few lads out having fun. But the swell's away for a few days now. It was a pathetic sight this afternoon.

there would not be any discernable swell lines like that if the break was so small
