The Great Surf Pilgrimage | Dom Moore's Surf Sanctuary Blog | Surfing Scene | Scoop.it

Yesterday, on the 6th of January, the Hercules Storm arrived in Cornwall, bringing 20 ft swells with a 20 second swell period. Options for surfing were greatly reduced due to the overwhelming size of the swell, but some near-mythical gems were waking up. My mate Nick and I went to the best of these, and although around 200 others had the same idea, I won’t be naming the location here.

Elliot Walker's insight:

Excellent write up on surfing perfect barrels in the eye of the Hercules super low storm which hit the coast of the UK in the first week of January 2014. It's an exciting tale of search and survival during the surf of a decade on a wave battered coast.
