surfrider-Depends what your into,your the weak beachbreak with lots of crowd kind of guy then,I spent a few weeks up there in the NE,not gonna mention any spots,but we had 3 days of 6ft lefthand barrels,as wide as they were tall,barrelling all the way down the point,Name one spot in the SW that does that

Mookesh - waves in NE england better than devon/cornwall, who you kidding, not in all the time I've lived in Tynemouth, NE scotland maybe... And bearded Clam, are you trying to tell me that's hitting the pool or a pier>

mookesh griffin Jan 7, 2009 Rating: 0

I don't reckon thats mavs. The NE coast of england for sure,Theres waves up there that piss over anything cornwall and devon have too offer,proper heaving slabs and long barreling points,one in particular is world class,just fickle,fuckin cold and water thats poo brown

Photo is from the lineup looking at the back of the wave right on the bounce. The North East has its days, but I have never seen it bounce up like that before....its fookin' mahoosive......in addition to the Bro's valid comment below on the gun, my money is on Mavericks.

yeah, don't reckon that's Tynemouth, however you do need full suits and hoods there; its colder than mavs!

I agree with Capesurfer. They are in fullsuits w/ hoods. I've also seen this photo somewhere stating that it was Mavericks

capesurfer's avatar

It looks like those guys are wearing hoods. I've never been to todos santos but does it really get cold enough to warrant hoods?
