Default West Cornwall - Not bad for Boardmasters

Europe's biggest Surf Festival, at least it's been mainly dry, with a messy, challenging wave - probably a very good wave tomorrow.

Just an extra 200,000 or so in Newquay at the moment (the towns winter population is near 12,000.) In fact Cornwall is ludicrously packed now Big Brother has scared people out of taking kids out of school. (School trips to the seaside are fine of course.)

Back in the far west it's really rather summery, everyone's seems to have got accustomed to temps in the high teens rather than the mid 20's, so whenever the sun's out the beaches resemble a heatwave. (camera scrolls around)

At least we missed all the rain the SE got, it was sunny, but distinctly windy, instead.
