Marazion will probably work a bit but I guess it will be pretty lame. At the same time the forecast is giving Epic Bluff conditions.
When its upcoming tide and the beach get slightly washed over you will get endless waves over there till the water hits the rocks.

The only really scary period will be with low tide: Hollow monsters that chew you up and spit you out.

Good luck Arf. I'd send the pros out this morning and wait for low tide!

How was it Arf? Looks bloody hairy in the photos.

It was really good actually, Maza on the Saturday, waves around shoulder height at biggest, really good fun. In the morning it was hell windy so I watched SA spank England in the rugby while the pros were out then went out on the 3.3, which was perfect. I had lots of time to tune it so I felt ready as ever for my heat, which was about 3 hours later.
By the time the heat came it had dropped a lot but still crazy squalls coming through so opted to stick with 3.3 for my heat and hope for squalls, as I prefer waveriding with a very small sail and should still be able to get my jumps in when the squalls come. As it happened there were no squalls in my heat.. I got two lovely waves but couldn’t get any jumps in, and got eliminated. Had a good free sail after.

Sunday was at the bluff, waves a bit bigger and hairier, wind cross on port tack. Masters double didn’t happen due to time constraints so I watched the pros and socialised on the beach, then hit the road.

An awesome weekend as always, great company and some really fun sailing.
