Completely and utterly flat, you're right. Still, at least I'm in Scotland and waves are coming soon.

All this B#tching about unriden 6inch british perfection and white Safas, 39 and Catfish both seem to be suffering from a lack of good waves. Go for a surf and wash all that bad vibe out of your heads. Sory 39 you probably going to have to wait a while before it gets 6inches again. Where you from Catfish, Durban?

Catfish, you say you've been surfing since the early eighties, so even if you started at 5 that makes you at the very least 25. You really need to grow up. Where are these gnarly pictures you mention, the ones of you all bloodied, dragging your broken board up the beach after a gnarly wipeout? Or indeed anything of you actually surfing?

I am a white South African too, and we're not all opinionated idiots like catfish seems to be. This is a great shot of a very ridable looking wave, well done!

Douchefish, your just like every other south african who unfortunately ended up on Cornish shores this summer an arrogant, illiterate idiot. Keep your opinion to yourself and oh yeah why don't you go and charge puerto on your 7'0'' or 7'2''? Probably because your a kook and you have nothing better to do with your time than slate other people's sweet photos. Once again you are a douche.

I'm married to a South African and she'd be ashamed at Catfish's comments. If the surf is so good for him....how come he has so much time to browse our lovely Cornish waves. Check out this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=de6V90jT4SQ

Catfish, don't know if you realise this is a British website, hence so many pictures from the UK.We are still awaiting the epic pictures you say you have of yourself emerging cut and bloodied from being dragged over dry reef. Why are South Africans so unpleasant ( well, I mean White South Africans) is it the arrogance bred from Apartheid?

Pussyfish- 1st things first dont call us pommies (i assume thats what you meant by "pomy" you illiterate retard) only aussies / Kiwis are allowed to do that ok (ask Daddy to explain). Secondly - if you study the other recent pics on this site you will note that there are several other shots of Porthtowan going off on that day. What you have to do is look at the pic. Then read the name of the break (ask Daddy to help with that bit). Then check the date...and hey presto before you know it you will be putting the jigsaw together yourself.

The reason why there's no-one on it cause it's only 3 inches high.
