Perranporth Bay, Cornwall, England


This photo was taken in Perranporth (Porthpyran in Cornish, stands for "Saint Piran's cove", Saint Piran being the patron saint of Cornwall) is a popular surfing tourist destination on the north coast of Cornwall, England, in the UK.
The village, and its large sandy beach, face the Atlantic, with hundreds of miles of uninterrupted fetch producing large waves, making it one of the most popular surfing destinations in Britain, along with neighbouring breaks at Newquay, Chapel Porth and Porthtowan.

Living here in California, I never really think of Britain as a surfing spot, but I've heard several times now that it can be quite good. Nice shot.
