December, 1973: Caught the train from Exeter on Xmas break from Uni Exeter to Cornwall. Hitchiked to Sennen Cove. Huge waves, too scary for me. Waited for the swell to settle, went out, maybe five guys in the water. Bitchen waves, but froze my butt off, after one hour came in, ran up and down the beach screaming IT'S COLD !!! Tears ran down my face. Have to hand it to the Brits, man, those guy, talk about aclimated, call it what you want, but those guys have some really big huevos.

All I can say is that you poms must have small feet. Probably becouse you all have small penises. You reckon the North Atlantic is the heaviest seas in the world? try going south to the Roaring forties. I've been on deep-sea fishing boats all over the world, including the North Atlantic, and the seas around the Antarctic are the biggest and meanest you will ever see. 20ft Pommy = 10ft Aussie.

down in the scilly isles there are a load of of shore reefs that break on big swells, have never been out too them because there is allways some were good and managable too surf on the islands, but you can see these waves breaking from a good mile away of the back of samson island, the biggest iv been out over there is about 8ft wich is big engough for me but the place can hold a lot bigger swell. on the outer reefs wich there are many too explore im talking 20 plus, way way out my leage but they are there.

It was a joke!!. We all know that Brighton blows, and I agree, anybody who has to get advise on surfing waves bigger than 6ft on a "kook forum" like this needs to seriously think about thier ability.
