Icco or Rocco? - That pic looks more like Rocco's out the back of the tower at Le Braye.

Icho tower surf - I fish this area loads during summer, if it does ever break it must be ridiculously dangerous to head out on a boat as it would need to be a massive swell.Have you surfed it before?Also i hear theres some quality breaks on the minquiers?

Lies make baby Jesus cry. - Mate hater your right. This photo can't be Jersey, and why bother making out that Jersey is consistantly 8ft?? Do you not realise that if France and Cornwall are flat then your little island is also flat. There is a lot of information on the net, it's not just free music and porn. We know when your lying.
