THE largest waves in the world will hit the Cornish coast on Wednesday.

Forecast website www.stormsurf.com has predicted waves between 30 and 38 feet are to once again batter the coast.

According to the website’s forecast, these will be the largest waves recorded on the face of the Earth at that time with usual big wave spots such as Australia, Hawaii and Fiji falling short.

The Met Office, the Exeter-based national weather forecast company, has issued a wind warning on Wednesday with 80mph gales set to accompany the huge waves.

    Regardless of all the scaremongering, I think its about time we chucked a line to the equator and dragged our poor batter country down toward the middle of the globe to escape some of this battering

    Largest waves in the world? Was a surfer not shown riding an 80 ft wave? By that standard 40 ft is a large pimple. However I would not like to be in its path. Consider what destruction an 80 ft wave on the South West Coast. would cause

    I didn't read this as sensational scaremongering, what it's actually saying is that Cornwall will get the biggest waves in the world AT THIS TIME, not in history! (So comparison to a tsunami is irrelevant!)

    Didn't realise there was a Truro in England as well as in Cornwall. Twinning possible perhaps? Piran's tale is a bit more believable that George fighting a dragon, isn't it?

    Yet another OTT story full of vast "Waves" of inaccurate information and child like over active imagination. Sorry Herald but it is about time you got some new staff, preferably individuals who will not write such utter tripe.

    @kernow 19, apparently the monster wave is going to throw the abandoned liner ashore, where all the disease-ridden cannibal rats will escape and wipe out the population of Cornwall.... at least, that's what it said in the Sun.

    I think its about time The government concerned itself about its own citizens and taxpayers, instead of trying to save the world, exporting our money overseas whilst families are losing their homes. These storms are dangerous and they're affecting a lot of people.

    Can't get waves bigger than those from the tsunami is Asia a couple of Christmases ago, good god this country is so wimpy just lately, just look around the rest of the world and places that get tidal waves destroying whole villages and killing hundreds / thousands of people not just the odd one or two.
