As forecast, all hell broke loose today. Someone recorded 96mph winds at Cregneash on the Isle of Man, and everywhere there were trees down and roads closed. The sea was mad with huge plumes of spindrift absolutely everywhere, a decent sell hitting the Island and ballistic winds. I went to Port Erin at first, and although it was a decent size it was blown out, so I went out at The Point, Port St. Mary instead where there was a nice 3-4 foot left hander breaking into the small bay between the flat rocks. Further out on the flat rocks huge waves were breaking in the shallow water with 20 foot plumes of spray being blown off the tops of the waves by the storm force winds....Cool!
In the protection of the sea wall and cliffs, the winds weren't too bad, so the surf was OK, but the rides fairly short.
