Here are some images of my friend Mark Baker. We have been on some great trips to various places, but the most memorable (for me) was a quick few days up to Scotland...Epic waves and morning light. I've been back numerous times since, and still never seen the conditions as good as they were that particular October dawn.             ...

I've been taking photos for a while now, and thought I'd share a few old classics as well as a few recent shots, from the epic winter we have enjoyed here in the south west. Enjoy the shots...I'm off for a beer.             Martin Yelland...

  In January a small group of us embarked on a journey to Fuerteventura for 10 days of sun and surfing. We spent our days travelling around the island in our Fiat Pandas to different surf spots, catching the waves of our lives and feeling a million miles away from the cold and dark seas in the UK. Sea and air temperatures averaged around 20 degrees and flights are frequent from many aiports across the UK. The island is uncrowded with a chilled surfing vibe surrounded by dormant volcanos offering an interesting backdrop to every surf.  Staying in the north of the...

Well it was like some great celestial switch had been flicked, and in the space of pretty much one day we went from the depths of the stormiest winter, to a pretty pleasant, if breezy, spring!     St. Piran’s day was celebrated in Cornwall on the 5th of March, and the revellers were treated to wall to wall sunshine, and more importantly, legit surf. It was pretty much the first time everyone has surfed a beach around here in ages. This season has done crazy things to the sandbanks. Rocks are exposed where there were never rocks before, beaches have...

Taking everything but the kitchen sink. Well in my case when I packed to travel the world I think I may of taken the kitchen sink, along with all the kitchen appliances. Travelling lightly wasn't really an option once you've decided to travel with all your toys. Toys being two 8ft SUPS, wetsuits and longboards alongside suitcases that were just within the weight! Taking all your toys comes at a price (literally) in so many ways as the airline will take every advantage of the fact that you have to take your very heavy items by attempting to charge the earth...

    This Friday three Newquay surfers Josh Hughes, Rhys John and Arron Evans will be setting off on a challenge to cycle from the north to the south of France to raise money for a local surf foundation. Here I caught up with Josh and Rhys and asked them a few questions about their challenge.   Where are you cycling from/to? JH: We are cycling from Calais in the NE of France, down to Labenne in the SW corner. -Why are you doing it? RJ: We are doing the ride to help GroundSwell raise money to run future projects. We...

So a month has been and gone in our beautiful Sayulita, a small tourist town halfway down the Pacific coast. It was the first stop on our journey and the perfect place to start. Being just an hours bus journey away from Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita is a breeze to get to and from. Just head to any bus stand and there'll be a guide there, tell him where you want to go and he'll point out and stop the bus for you. Most bus journeys are pretty cheap, around 20 Pesos, so try and avoid giving them big notes. They hate...

Well it's been a pretty crazy winter, that's for sure! I've strived to capture the many mood swings of this past season with photographs and video footage, and I've included a few below. From firing points somewhere in the U.K, to stormy seas off Wales, I've been getting quite a variety of shots recently. 1) Summerleaze, Bude. Yeah believe it or not, this is actually Summerleaze! It breaks like this occasionally, but I think the photo's a bit deceiving. I don't think it was as good to surf as it looks here! 2) Near Bude. Another shot from really early on...

Cloudbreak situated around a mile off the island Tavarua Fiji, was discovered by a man called David Clark and his brother in 1982 when they camped out at the spot and found a perfect left hand wave resulting in them leasing the land and the surf spot, then further more making them the created and owners of Tavarua surf resort that is very popular today. Cloudbreak has been known to get to as big as 23ft!! It can require a whole range of surfboards, the best swell is said to be anything huge and from the South. So I interviewed a...

Whitest sand Goes hand in hand With the clear blue ocean It's the best potion To cure the stresses of life Keep it simple, eat everything with rice The island way of living Involves giving Not in the way of material But one that is spiritual The most helpful kind With a thoughtful mind But in contrast The tourist targeter's will be fast Once you're away from the main road, you're think at last No more hassle Just the locals with their cattle Coconuts and Palm leaf huts Stray muts Fresh fruit An atmosphere that's almost mute Thats the way it...

    Perspective. It's a funny thing I find. This winter has dished out some absolutely mental weather conditions, causing major flooding and general destruction in all parts of the UK, not just in our beloved south west. My girl friend and I were driving a few days ago at the end of January, and she was in a good mood 'cos January was 'nearly over'. I questioned her about this apparent irrational dislike of January and her answer was 'cos it's long and depressing'. This is a common attitude I discovered amongst the non-wave riding general public.   I pondered...

2014, another year where modern surfing will once again, move forward? Another year where we forget how the surfing industry got to where it is today? Where competitive surfing is? We’re forever leaping forward into a more modernized surfing industry, a new way of surfing, a more popularized surfing community.  But how did we get here?                                             On the 2nd of November, 2013, Montgomery “Buttons” Kaluhiokalani passed away after a long fight with lung cancer. One of the fathers of...

Check out the trailer to my UK Bodyboarding DVD 'Post Codes', filmed over a period of four years with trips to Sumbawa, Sumatra, Scotland, Lanzarote, Yorkshire and all over Kernow.     There's footage of some epic waves at unknown spots with quality underground riders. We met Hawaiian Jacob Romero on a boat trip around Indo and scored some sick footage at a secret right slab near Supasuck. Jacob is now a pro bodyboarder who competes on the IBA tour. To purchase a copy of the DVD for the bagain price of twelve pounds, email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  ...

A bit about the conditions and atmosphere of each beach we have surfed on the Central Coast Aussie... Umina (said in a strong bogan accent)"friendly training wave"Is our local. It's an exposed estuary beach break with a slow wave, critical sections at high and low tide. A break for everyone, extremely friendly atmosphere and the lifeguards give you leeway on the rules e.g for kitesurfing you can be in between the flags as long as you're not near people. Quiet because there are 'better beaches around'.   Copacabana & McMasters You can go to Copa if you feel like you're fit enough...

What is surfing for you - a hobby, a sport, a passion, an escape?  No matter what you consider the surf as, we all share it with one thing.  And that thing is nature.  We sit on our boards enveloped in it every time we venture out the back – our legs daggle freely into an abyss of water and swells we yearn for are propagated from some angry mid-ocean storm brewing hundreds of miles away.  We may ride our waves into pristine sandy shores, or towards some majestic cliff face, over ancient coral beds or reefs of rock, and if...

How it works I’m assuming you’ve probably heard of fantasy football or something similar? Well this is fantasy surfer. You get to pick and manage a team for each event on the ASP world tour, and you’ll be rewarded for how well each member of your team does in competition. You start with a budget of $50,000,000 and each surfer’s price is based on their results and tour ranking. At the start of the season, it’s based on last year’s final standings, so time to make decisions about whether to blow all your money on the big names, or whether to...

'How do you survive that?' an onlooker squirms for the surfer getting eaten at 35 seconds on the clip. That's a question no one can answer. Teahupoo, Tahiti, is not for the faint hearted. Shallow, sharp reef and one of the heaviest waves in the world challenge the best of surfers. The video shows a crazy collection of wipeouts.  Ouch. Fair play to everyone out there though. Dropping in to waves like that deserves serious respect.  Which is your favourite wipe out? Wait. Are you allowed to have a favourite? I'm not sure. ...
