Howling Cross-Shore wind
Surf conditions at 7.40 a.m. on Friday 3rd January 2014:
It's a tricky one to judge here this morning, it's big, really big and set to get bigger!
An hour or two after high tide, set waves are still surging towards the bridge, the slipway gaining a two foot drop to the sand, Anthony's fence suffering a battering and the Surf School's container having had a good wash down. Hilly and Chris (Harlyn Surf School) Rea were both agreeing that it's as big as any of us had seen and it should get bigger on this afternoon's tide, this evening promising some mayhem and probably some more damage.
Hilly seems up for a low tide one but I think that maybe it will be too big to get in. Just to put that in perspective, Hilly is a multi championship winning drop knee bodyboarder, he's been surfing a long time and likes it big. But it is probably going to be too big! And Chris has as much experience as anyone around.
So if you haven't got the experience, done the training and have the confidence to look after yourself then give it a miss. There are other places, other days.
After saying that, Cheyney's could be impressive to look at at low tide maybe!
I'm guessing that we will be awash with some stunning images soon enough!
