It's amazing how huge these waves are. When I get good enough and get my own place, I wanna move here so I can ride the wave every day. These are some awesome pics, I've never seen Jaws! It's huge it's even bigger than the waves that hit Indonesia! I heard a mega-tsunamis hitting my place soon.

Isabel Australia

Tonya Martinez, Dallas TX.
I think Makua Rothman is the finest surfer i've ever seen! I'd like to meet him. He caught my eye on the "True LIfe" show. I like his personality, he's down to earth, he's real. And he's got talent. He made me want to learn how to surf!! He doesn't put up with anyones bull****!, because i've seen him put them in their place and i like the fact that he surfs because he has the passion for it, and not for the attention.

8r1 in ict richard lander school , truro

nathan phillips is stunning! i know him and live near him and he is an amazing surfer

Nicola, England
Surfer girls are much cooler than the boys and i think girls are much better surfers, i'm sick of boys getting all the credit when it comes to sport, i think girls should steal the show for example Sanoe Lake, Michelle Ballard and Layne Beachley are the coolest surfer girls around, you rock!

Nicola, England
Makua Rothman looks so cool surfing that wave, how brave is he! Surfing is the coolest sport and so is he. I want to see more pics of Makua as he is so awesome!

porthleven has got to be the best brake i have ever surfed at and no its not just because i was brought up there, the waves are so powerfull comparied to any other, solid hollow sections, but only recomend for the more extreme people surfing or bodyboarding!!!!! cornwall has so many grate brakes just got to down there and drive untill you find the type of brake you like!!

Louise Hayle

Monners from Cornwall
To the New Zealand surfers who have moved from the UK: How has it been as I'm considering it, going on holiday there first. Plus, are the Auckland and New Plymouth areas the best to explore first or are there other areas.

Please be nice to us Kooks, one day I promise I'll be as good as you, and until then and forever after will treat you all with ultimate respect, but give us a chance, we know how awful we are and how we get in the way! Hey, at least we provide entertainment on our big ugly boards with our spectacular wipe-outs. Loluv.

Kevin Acosta, Bourbonnais, (Chicago), IL USA
I stumbled on your site...I'm really stoked with your great shots. Fantastic photos. We sometimes surf Lake Michigan (see but it's nothing like ocean surfing.
