Newquay's Cribbar sparks into life

On wednesday this week, Newquay's infamous big wave, the Cribbar, fired up. Some elements of the media were trying to sensationalise the day by saying it was 25ft, but our v.reliable eyeball source who knows the wave well, pegged it at more like 8ft-10ft.

Still it was big enough for some of the local crew to tow into it along with a young lad Josh Hughes who at only 17 yrs, claims to be the youngest to have ever ridden the wave. A similar feat by a 17yr Jay Moriaty at Mavericks in the 90's propelled Jay into the global surf spotlight after a cover shot on Surfer Mag. I don't think Josh is going to be thrust into the limelight in quite the same way but it was a ballsy go-out for someone of his age nonetheless.
