that tanker was there, i can assure you. i was in the water that day. i reckon the bloody tanker was holding back the forecasted 15'@15s swell. :o( (joke - 1. it was a west swell and that tanker was to the south, and 2. a floating object cant hold back swell).

It is a dodgy place to leave a tanker. Cornwall is well known for it's pirates!!

Ha, 10 out of 10. I was there that day but opted not to bother with the contest area and the other reefs were looking very average. I got some nice quiet barrels futher down the coast but i can say that the slab, graveyards, harbour wall or what ever you call it does indeed break like this.

That big shipping vessel was not originally there....definitely photshopped! Shame on the photographer for faking the appearance of commerce in such an economic doldrum.

not photoshopped, look at the guy behind the wave on the right side but not on the left. Plus, the drop in for one is at a different angle than the other...

Not photoshed. First, I supposed it was but if you tchek, you can see that it's real. The two bodyborders have a different position and the trajectories are not the same...
