According to the West Briton newspaper the biggest waves in the world are forecast to hit Cornwall tomorrow (Tuesday February 24). Surf forecast web site www.stormsurf.com has predicted swell between 34 and 40 feet to batter the coast, which could generate waves of up to 25 feet in Sennen.
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 swell tomorrow will also be accompanied by a larger than average six to seven metre tide on Cornwall’s North coast, rounding off the latest spring ‘supertide’ – which saw the lowest tide in 20 years throughout Cornwall.
