Cornish surfers hit Morocco
ALTHOUGH the wave isn't Cornish, the surfer is.
Professional long boarder James Parry from Sennen is pictured here riding a wave at Taghazout, a surfing Mecca, north of Agadir in Morocco last week.
He was participating in Sennen Surfing Centre's annual trip to the north African country; where 10 students in the surf school's elite squad went for a week's tutorial on some of the most revered right-hand breaks in the world, including the legendary Anchor Point.
The students, aged 13 to 16, all attend local secondary schools and Penwith College and received lessons from nine coaches including Parry, who had just returned after coming fourth in the prestigious Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational in Biarritz.
Coach Dave Muir said: "For him to come along and help coach was massive for us and gave the guys a bit of insight into how someone from Sennen can reach this level and inspired them."
