On Wednesday the 2nd of Sept 2010 some of the longest wave periods predicted all year arrived on the Cornish coast. This was then combined with 2 other things:- an offshore breeze and warm summer sunshine!
A rare sight in the UK – but for a while Fistral beach in Newquay and many othr local spots up the North Cornish coast were sculpted by nature into a surfers dream.
By early morning some of the UK’s top surfers entered the water to make the most of the waves, and https://www.newquaysurfer.org caught some great stills that day. In the mini gallery below you can check out images of top UK surfers:- Spencer Hargraves, Johnny Fryer (British mens champion), Sarah Beardmore (British womens champion), Matt Rodwell and young surfing prodigy Laura Crane.
