On the evening of Wednesday Sept 1st Newquay saw the first of 4-days of epic surfing conditions which saw overhead waves and offshore winds combine with plenty of sunshine, that made Newquay’s surf spots look more like Hawaii’s North shore than a UK seaside town.
On Friday evening on the 3/9/10 the tide dropped, the sun began to set and some of the best local pro surfers hit the water…then Fistral began to barrel.
Watch the video below.
I climbed up onto the rocks at North Fistral and shot as much of these rare moments as I could. Filming with the sun in your eyes can be a bit tricky, but in this case was worth the effort 🙂 The result was the following video ( above). This video is also featured on the extreme sports website Mpora.com
I think everyone agreed the guy who got the barrel of the day was Mitch Corbett
