Good Morning Cornwall!!

I popped down the coast to catch up with my friends Russ and Jill. We spent a couple of glorious mornings on the beach, you can see Russ’s great still photos at to James Parry, Sam Bleakly, Elliot Dudley, his partner and the men in the harbour for letting me film them.

I was also there to see Andy Cummins from SAS surfing a very special board (the quad half way through the clip). The blank comes from Home Blown and is made from about 34% plant based materials and the resin is from 98% plant based materials – producing a board that has more than 50% sustainable materials. They are priced about the same as their petrochemical cousins and under strength tests are proving to be stronger and lighter than polyurethane blanks. Andy was also testing out the camera board for a project we are working on for a bigger darker day.

Thanks so much to Richard Asquith and Henry Price for the beautiful track called Haven. You can see what they are up to at

    Kids, work, running an unsuccessful surf site, trying to snatch the odd wave. It’s easy to get sucked in up here in Brighton and forget what life is all about. This clip has brought it all back. I’ll be be planning my next trip down today. Nice one Rich.

    This is one of the nicest pieces of surf/film/music I have ever seen. Really love it.
    Actually have been really enjoying all of the diary clips. I think you are doing something really good.
