There are waves in Cornwall I haven't and cannot surf. There are waves in Cornwall that are still mythical. They are not down a track I haven't tried yet, they are not so rare, that hours of driving and gallons of petrol put me off. They are not so fabled that I do not possess photographs of them. Here are the photos of a Cornish wave I have not ridden. May be one day.

One of the World's major newspapers, yes The Cornishman, featured a slice of a spring south swell in deepest darkest Penwith.
Surfing the backwash off newlyn harbour...hope the shopping trolley scheme was good.
