Surfers braved Britain’s biggest wave ‘The Cribbar’ - also known as the WIDOW-MAKER - after it made a rare appearance and peaked at a whopping TEN METRES.

Daredevils paddled out to the infamous spot and rode waves which were as high as a three storey building. The giant swell near Newquay, Cornwall, is only created under specific conditions which were present on Saturday morning. But it proved too much for some younger adrenalin-junkies - including 15-year-old Kamron Matthews, who can be seen toppling off his board.
