VIDEO: Noosa man takes 15 foot set wave on the head

NOOSA man Henry Neill has been filmed taking on a solid 15 foot day at the Cribbar - a big wave spot in Cornwall in England's in south-west.

In a video on the Plymouth Herald's website on December 16 Neill tells the camera he has been waiting "for a swell like this for a while" before rock hopping into the ocean holding a very serious looking big wave gun. 

Unfortunately for Neill a clean up set comes through as he paddles out and he is apparently unable to make it out the back so he turns around and paddles back in. 

Others fared a little better on the day with another video (below) taking the drop on some 10-15 foot bombs.
