It’s a good week for surfing monster waves of two very different kinds. The high winds and deep low pressures across western Europe have given the opportunity for one Devon born surfer to ride the biggest wave ever recorded at 100 feet tall. Have a look at these pictures from the Daily Mail website there is a good video on the Telegraph website too.
Meanwhile the Servern Bore has been the target for surfers and kayakers who like life a little more sedate. The Severn Bore is one of Britain’s few truly spectacular natural phenomena. It is a large surge wave that can be seen in the estuary of the River Severn, where the tidal range is the 2nd highest in the world, being as much as 50 feet (approx. 15.4m).
