Hi all here are some photos of this afternoon in west Cornwall
The first 3 are of Porthleven in a 6-8ft swell winds gusting to 50mph

The rest are of Perranporth on the north coast. The swell was blown out so difficult to say how big. The cliffs in the background are over 200ft. Two are the photos show two children on a rock outcrop the sea was surging with incredible power. The shots of the rocks show the before and after surge with just 45secs between.

The Kite surfer was getting some good air time.
You needed to be on your guard and have trainers on ready to run when a surge came!!

We had a brief gust to 36kts this morning at about 11 but so far it's only been around F5 or F6. They're still predicting it will get a bit exciting later tonight.

Thanks for taking the time to post your great pics Adamn, if that kite surfer stays out while midnight I'm sure that he will get some superb air time

I'm surprised that there were no hardened surfers out there.

There were a couple further down the coast on a more sheltered beach. Looking at the swell size it still looked like
Death on a stick! ( famous film quote)

Teenage boy swept away at Newhaven beach

BBC News - Teenage boy 'swept away' by sea in Newhaven

Sussex Police received a call at 16:15 GMT to say the boy, who had been swimming with a friend off West Beach in Newhaven, had been "swept away by the current".

The Newhaven Lifeboat team said at 21:45 GMT all teams searching off the coast had been stood down.

In a tweet, it said its thoughts "go to the boy's family and friends at this sad time".

The boy was last seen playing in the surf about 10m offshore, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said.

Earlier, a spokeswoman had said weather conditions at the scene were very bad.

Family 'distraught'
"The weather conditions are just atrocious, with poor visibility making it extremely difficult," she said.

She explained that police were with the boy's family and they were "distraught".

A police spokesman said it was a "very distressing incident".

He added: "All agencies remind people of the dangers of being at seashores in adverse weather, especially in view of the approaching severe weather conditions overnight.

"The advice is straightforward - stay clear."
