On Friday the 16th of April 2021 I headed to Flat Rocks Perranporth to take some photos of the high tide.
The sea was calm, with a clean little wave. People had obviously spotted that the conditions were going to be ideal for watersports as there were lots in the sea. I managed to get some photographs and footage of people enjoying a beautiful morning on the water.
I guess this is what you might see on a typical calm high tide on a sunny morning at Perranporth Beach...

Swimmers: part of a group of six local ladies that are training for a relay swim from Land's End to the Isles of Scilly.
A canoeist out in the bay.
This guy in a little red canoe get some epic rides in, so I decided to follow him.
The joy of canoe surfing.
As those I spoke to whilst walking back across the beach agreed, it really was a handsome morning for it.
