After over a month of pretty flat and very cold conditions Boxing day and the 27th of Dec 2010 saw a decent swell finally hit the North Cornwall coast combined with offshore winds.
Inspite of the icy cold water and solid head high + conditions plenty of surfers were out braving the cold waves.
Below are a couple of photos of the action, including the one above where a surfer gets a little bit too close to the rocks, just as the wave behind is about to close out!
My God that looked proper cold. I was out in Bournemouth Bay I think the same day and had a great day but boy was my head stinging that night.
What camera are you using for this pics? They are really excellent. You put the shots I took that day to absolute shame!
cheers. Camera is a Nikon D60 with a 300mm lens.
