HUGE seas this evening (Saturday) attracted thrill seeking surfers to Lynmouth to ride the big waves.

Not for the faint-hearted, as the heavy rollers smashed into the village seafront, several daredevil board riders were out in the thick of the action.

With a seabed made up entirely of boulders, which can be heard being ground together by the surging waves, this is definitely a spot for the more experienced surfer.
