Wow, what i fool i was to think a wave could break next to a wall! If fact there are a few here too http://magicseaweed.com/Newquay-Town-Beaches-Surf-Photos/967/ . So people have far too much time to go around faking all of these pictures.

The local mags cannot produce fotos like this because their photographers are not around at the right time,when the Harbour Lefts are breaking like this,I am going to prove you wrong and put other local surfers,shot at this spot regularly.This is a unique photo and we happen to be in the right place at the right time....we will ignore your ignorance and negativity stupid=negative

Why would anyone waste their time and make a fake photo to put up here...? I mean really, don't people have anything better to do with their lives. Today is a sad day for me... And Freddie isn't playing either. Balls.

Dont be fooled. It is not as good as the photo shows. It is real and if photoshopped then only the colour. They put the boats up onto the wall for maintenance during the winter. Depending on the tide you can stand on a ledge on the wall to watch for sets so needless to say the take off zone is kind of small. It would be the smallest wave in newquay that day by miles but kets shelter from strong west winds which is its only good point!

Thank you,you are right we shoot rain or shine everyday on the beach so when its good and there are a few days of the year when it breaks like that,we are there to capture it.Only the color has been tweaked.I'll add more shots of other locals surfing the lefts on better days!

if you look at the boats in the harbour, they seem to be sitting at a higher tide than the surfing side of the wall.

It's beacause the boats behind are sat up on the harbour wall, maybe for anti fouling etc.
