It has been a long winter of persistent storms. The Atlantic has been firing one after another straight at the UK with Cornwall bearing the worst of it. I always keep an eye on the sea conditions on Magic Seaweed and week after week huge patches of swell are arriving at the cornish coast - its not often you see Oranges, Reds and Blacks on the swell chart - these mean 20ft+ swells with the black patches reaching 50ft.... not kayaking weather and to even contemplate putting a kayak in that sort of swell is pure stupidity!
So with the kayak out of action i decided to go storm chasing! If i can't be on the water, being next to it, observing it and admiring its power is the next best thing. Here's a few photos from a few locations i visited in West Cornwall. Sooner or later there will be some calmer conditions and i can get out there paddling and fishing but given the conditions today its hard to believe i even fish out there at all!
