Comments (0)

As winter in Cornwall has welcomed some collosal swells this year, Newquay's notorious surfing reef, the Cribbar, continues to break.

Off-shore winds combined with a huge Atlantic swells saw perfect conditions with waves reaching triple-over-head.

The reef, situated about half a mile off Towan Headlane at the north end of Fistral Beach, only breaks a handful of times a year when swell conditions are perfect.

See a video uploaded by 's Steve Patterson of 'Super Sunday' as a few lucky (and brave!) surfers took on the giant breakers.
