You may have noticed but it’s been rather chilly recently. Over the snowy period, we were completely stuck and couldn’t drive anywhere. During one of the snow days, when neither of us could get to work, we decided we had to get to our friends place to go sledging. It was a pretty darn chilly day but we wrapped up in some serious layers, packed our bags and headed off. I was wearing my new Teva boots and Vicky her…

  I have had a stand up paddle board (SUP) now for over two years and it has definitely had quite a bit of use over that time. I’ve not used it as much as I’d have liked though as having just one means that it’s hard to take other people out with you. Adventures on the sea are always much more fun with other people. It was because of this that I’ve been longing for a second SUP for…

  I’m a big fan of Fatyak; there is just so much to love. Their sit on top kayaks are well priced, well designed and are well made in Somerset, England. What more could you ask for? Awesome, home grown, colourful kayaks! This is why I own two of them, a standard Kaafu and a Fishing Kaafu. So when I found out that they had created the Fatyak Kaddy Storage Pod, which is an additional storage hatch for any of…

  I’ve recently added a new kayak to my quiver, in the form of the Fatyak Kaafu. I’ve bought it as it’s a perfect all rounder and it’s great to have as another kayak for my girlfriend or mates to take out. It has loads of great features and is a really awesome kayak. Here is why: At almost 10 foot, the Kaafu is an excellent size; big enough to paddle quickly in varying conditions and to have loads of…

This is a really short little piece but I just had a few nice photos from one of this week’s SUP sessions that I’d like to share. We took my old Bodyglove SUP and my new Fatyak Samos SUP out for a splash around Maenporth Cove just outside Falmouth. If the North Coast is too big to get out for a paddle, then Maenporth is one of my go to places. Although not as exciting as North Coast beaches it…

Normally, sea kayaking is my thing and I love nothing more than being out on the kayak fishing or adventuring. This Saturday, however, things went slightly differently to a normal kayaking trip. As we drove towards a sheltered South Coast spot, we passed the River Kennel, which comes from the beautiful Kennel Vale. The river was at a really high state of tide and rather than having a grassy flood plain on either side, the water filled the whole valley.…

    Summer is definitely the time for fishing and we’ve certainly been making the most of the good weather and doing so. We’ve been fishing almost every day, both from the shore and on the water off our kayaks. In my opinion, although harder to launch from and way more prone to big swell, the North Coast is always the best place to kayak and fish from. It’s always a lot more productive fishing wise and the epic scenery…

  Vicky here again – with a post for the ladies! We have been non-stop this year, making the most of the glorious weather and the beautiful location right on our doorstep. Being outdoors and in the water so much has meant that we’ve needed the right gear that suits this. Here are a few reviews of stuff i’ve been using. Tribord Ride Women’s Jungle UV Rash Vest Top I love the Tribord Ladies UV Rash Vest. It is really…

  Last Saturday I’m pretty sure the summer switch got turned on. I woke up and much like Scrooge on Christmas morning, I rushed to the window, swung it open and yelled at a boy to go buy me a turkey realised that it was in fact, bright, brilliant and sunny – not a cloud in the sky. In haste, I dusted off my flipity flops and reached to the back of the shelf to find my shorts. Pale legged…

  On one of the final days of my summer holiday, we decided to kayak to the popular Pandora Inn on the edge of Restronguet Creek. With its flagstone floors, low-beamed ceilings and thatched roof, dating back to the 13th Century, the Pandora truly is a landmark.   As they have their own mooring at the front of the pub, the Pandora Inn is accessible by the water and I couldn’t think of a better way to travel there than…
