come on.... - this place is not 'fucking dangerous'. padang padang, pipeline, teahupoo, g-land... they're fuckin dangerous. please stop masturbating your egos by asserting that you surfed in dangerous places when in reality you're talking about a picturesque beach with a few rocks. for what its worth i think the only seriously dangerous waves in north cornwall are millook, wansons, the box and trebarwith, and even then only on those mutant days. the rest of the waves around here are pussywillow, and anyone who wants to argue with that is either underballed or overmouthed, or both.
