Phil Beautiful drone footage of surfing giants like Laird Hamilton coming to grips with foiling on huge swell off Nazare.

They are towed in by jet bikes but are easily then able to outpace the waves so in a way it's safer than conventional surfing

That said I notice they all wear what looks like oxygen vests just in case

Well worth a watch

Alllrighty - I think it's time to accept that world events have come to Dorset so we'd best avoid public spaces until things return to normal

Phil Worse was July 2015 (peak school holidays) when apparently "..Forty incidents of raw sewage polluting beaches across the south west at the weekend happened because of water company systems failing.."

Check out the photo of the brown waves breaking on the beach

I've seen a long plume of similar coloured water emerging from the headland to the right of Saunton Sands (looking to the right as you face the see - on the way to Croyde viewable from those cliff top parking slots)

Saunton Sands is a private beach so it's unlikely that the water falls under the same Blue Flag standards
