  In just two weeks this summer, South West Water has released untreated sewage into the sea at Godrevy. The obviously devastating effect on the beaches, businesses, holidaymakers and surf is too much to ignore. So this Saturday 26th July at 2pm Surfers Against Sewage will be holding a peaceful protest calling for South West Water to stop unnecessary raw sewage discharge into the sea. If you can make it along, great. If not you can still sign the petition and help keep our beaches clean and safe. And be sure to spread the word. For more about the issue and...

Curren, Lopez, Occy. Everybody knows these names and the timeless style associated with them. Be it a masterful ride at J Bay, a bottom turn at Pipe that will never go out of fashion or a world-renowned back-hand, they are household names for a good reason. So how about some younger surfers? Did the style in surfing go out with the flares and tie-dye at the end of the seventies, or can surfers still improve on the greats of the previous generations? I think that style is very much an opinion, so my list is probably completely different to what yours...

  A few hours ago I posted our ‘Photo of the Day’. I was a bit tricksy. I don’t know who took it, which is why it isn’t credited. But I knew people would share it. Because it was of a guy about to get nailed by a huge wave. And they did share it. In fact it’s one of the most shared photos we’ve ever posted. Because it’s of a guy about to get nailed. Because it’s of all of us. Take a look and tell me you’re not picturing yourself in his position. Wondering if you’d survive the wipeout....

  The wave rears up behind you. You paddle, you kick, you stick one arm out and try to follow the curl with the piece of wood strapped to your hand. Surfing this ain't.   The art and craft of Handplaning has, like all surf sports, gone from obscurity to confused recognition to a careful science. And nowhere moreso than in Cornwall. It's not surprising. As the unofficial centre of surfing in the UK, Cornwall always sees the latest trend literally take shape. So during a summer laboured with one-too-many duckpond days, local surfers and shapers began whittling down bits of...

    The Smoothstar claims to improve your surfing ability by simulating the feeling of riding a wave. And it definitely looks like a smooth ride. Whether it helps your surfing or not, it looks awesome.   A complete setup will cost you around £200. Quite pricey for a streetboard, but could be worth every penny if it can pull a Miyagi and secretly improve your abilities. Check out their website here.   Alfie Hayward ...

  The man behind some of the best surf films of the 90s has died at 54. Sonny Miller gave us a series of Rip Curl classics like The Search, Tripping the Planet and Searching for Tom Curren. While famous for his love of 16mm film, he later moved on to work on big-budget Hollywood productions like Riding Giants, Billabong Odyssey and Die Another Day. Sonny was loved among the pro circuit for his heartwarming presence and skill with a camera. Kelly Slater described him as "...always happy and positive and truly epitomised the meaning of being stoked". For one last taste...

Surrounded on all sides by ocean and mountains, Wales is a land steeped in folklore. It’s a rugged country, filled with rugged people. Recently I’ve had the good fortune to get to know the ancient land of Cymru and its surf much better. There are times when Wales reminds me a lot of my home in North Cornwall, but then there are times when the land seems completely foreign to me, with enormous mountains rising out of the sea protecting the land behind them. It seems completely plausible to witness great fire-breathing dragons coiled around the summits of the mountains, shrouded...
