So most Cornish based surfers enjoy Watergate for its peak swell on the North end, forming powerful and running right handers. As well as the high tide banks and the jawdropping cliff views. But this year you can enjoy it for even more.   Contest surf fans roll up, because Watergate's now the stage for two of the year's prime UK surf events.   The English National Surfing Championships runs on the 30th April to the 2nd May.

  Heat by heat write up of the European Surfing Championships 2015 Day 5 - 18th September Ain Daab Casablanca   Repercharge 3 – Men’s Open Seb Smart was up bright and early. He'd also been one of the only surfers to brave the layday stormy conditions. Sebastian picked out the big ones that stood up and made his turns big. He scored enough on just a few waves, then his leash snapped making for a testing swim back to shore. No worries for Seb as he finished in second.   Snapped leash, the price for charging hard. Repercharge 3 –...

  Heat by heat write up of the European Surfing Championships 2015 Day 6 - 19th September Ain Daab Casablanca     The Finale day was fantastic as team England cheered on Megan Penny.   She was the last surfer standing in our team and surfed her mini final and final while the team flew the flags and watched in anticipation.     Megan did amazingly, picking the right waves to earn her points; rolls and spins and powerful spraying cutbacks on the best faces. Second in the mini final and then fourth in the final against the best European bodyboarders,...

  Heat by heat write up of the European Surfing Championships 2015 Day 2 - 14th September Ain Daab Casablanca   Progressive 1 - Mens Open Sam Harwood was up bright and early for the second heat of the day. Light offshores gave favourable conditions to the other days but still did not give him many open faced options. He dropped the first score of the heat, a small one, but having opened up he could now be pickier and wait for the bigger scoring waves. Sam Harwood, bright and breezy. Sam found a decent left and made the best of...

  Heat by heat update from the European Surfing Championships 2015 Day 1 - 13th September By Jessie Tuckman   P1 – Longboarding Our man Sam Smart, AKA Rambo, drew well with Holland and Scotland challenging and also with Moroccan Adil El Harif surfing at home. It was always going to be a game of wave selection and using priority well against opponents. Opposing countries dropped scores first but Sam waited patiently and picked a good first wave putting him into the lead. He carried on throughout, picking prime waves that allowed him to use the rails, walk to the nose...

  First up, remove that crusty old surfboard from wherever it's been hiding for the last ten years. Good places to look include the back of the shed, underneath a caravan and inside a hedge. Reminisce about the good times you had on it when you were 14.     Clean crap from board     Cut board in half with a jigsaw. Note: It's okay at this point to openly cry and whisper "I'm so sorry".     Cut a rectangular section out of one half of the board. About two fifths of the way up and half way in....

  Two years ago, surfer Ian Battrick and photographer Tim Nunn released a book called Numb. It was a bit of a first. The subject matter was their feral cold water adventures through Canada, Norway, Iceland and Scotland. And when you look at the whole cold water movement we’re now surrounded by, it was way ahead of the curve. The book documented six years of travel, from deep snow, volcanoes and sub-zero temperatures in Iceland to encounters with bears and surviving weeks in barren wilderness in Canada. It was an instant classic; a hard-backed coffee table book stacked with images and...

I'm not a big fan of the party wave, but it seems some days it's unavoidable to at least get dropped in on once. Surfing is becoming more popular as a one-time "have a go" sport, which is increasing the learner to proficient surfer ratio at popular beaches.   If you are lucky enough to get a decent wave to yourself in a lineup like these pictured, then good luck paddling back out as you duck and weave your way through the crowd.     Photo by MJ Photography   Just today I nearly collided with a (possibly Italian?) tourist who...

  According to the company, the board hovers using liquid nitrogen-fuelled superconductors and magnets. If you know what they are please enlighten us.   "It's very confidential information but we have been studying the flying car in our most advanced R&D area...Flying car means the car is just a little bit away from the road, so it doesn't have any friction or resistance from the road." says Hiroyoshi Yoshiki, a managing officer in Toyota's Technical Administration Group.   On a side note, I can't help but wonder how much Back to the Future 2 has accelerated the development of hoverboards.

You might have seen I've been following the production of the new Point Break film. But now it looks like I've been focussing on the wrong movie. I've just seen the trailer for George Trimm's new surf film Forbidden Trim, currently pitching its little heart out on Kickstarter. God I love a cheesy low budget surfpoilation movie, and this has all the trappings of a classic.   Check it out:   Longboards, check. Helicopters, check. Guns, check. Gorilla, check. Shaky super-8 camera work, check. Sure, it doesn't have the production values of the new Point Break, but the script is way...

  Rogue waves are vast surface-waves that occur spontaneously, often in open ocean. They are over twice the size of the significant wave height for a given sea state and are immensely unpredictable, causing chaos for large ships and ocean liners. They've puzzled scientists for decades and have only become definitively proven within the last few years.     Scientists in Germany have come up with a method that could change the future of big wave surfing. Due to the unpredictability of the waves and the lack of wave buoys and wave reading equipment in areas where they are more likely...

  Kate Barattini is the American artist behind the Animal Shred series; beautiful paintings of surfers crossbred with animals. We caught up with her to see what it's all about.       Firstly, the obvious one. How did you come up with the idea to illustrate surfers as half-human, half-animal?   Kassia Meador gets all the credit for this one.  There is a beautiful photo of her surfing mainland Mex, she's hanging heels on this perfect glassy wave with overcast skies, and I instantly saw her with monarch butterfly wings. While bringing my idea to life I couldn't stop smiling...
