I headed out at Towans around 1.30pm on a 9m 2011 Rebel and strapless on my Resin8 6'3 Tokoro pin. I had 3 decent waves before it got too light to go safely down the line so I came in and changed up to the trusty 11m.
The swell peaked at around 3pm and bottom turning on a few that were 4 times overhead in such light wind the adrenaline was pumping especially being out by myself. The wind then dropped another knot or so and made it super dodgy with the amount of water moving and some of the wave closing out all the way to Godrevy. With the escape route being hampered the tide being too high and 10ft of white water crashing against the cliffs, i called it a day after having around 20 waves with some nice turns on the few I ad enough wind on.
Definately the biggest waves I have ridden strapless on a kite and the biggest anywhere except for Margaret River.
A couple of windsurfers tried to go out just after but couldn't get no where near out back.
Pics are taken form top of sand dune 100+ft up but you can get an idea of size.
With a cacking forecast for the rest of the week, lets hope its the start of an awesome winter.
