Cornwall has so many things to offer and culture is definitely right up there. There is a huge amount of awesome music flowing around and out of our great county at the moment, here are three of my top picks: BackBeat SoundSystem – Losing Faith The weather is getting even more rainy and rubbish, If you need that summer buzz back watch this new video from probably my favorite Cornish band or check them out on ‘Three On Thursday’…

  Here is a classic Cornish walk which you’re guaranteed not to get lost on – the entire length of Perranporth beach, from Droskyn Point all the way to Penhale Sands and back. Important: This walk is only achievable at low tide. This is a fantastic walk to do with your dogs, but note that although dogs are allowed on Perranporth beach every day of the year; that during the summer months of July and August all dogs must be…

  Probably the best band to come out of Portland, Oregon, The Decemberists are an indie folk rock band that are truly superb. One of the many things I like about them is how their songs often feature local folklore and history; this feels very Cornish – and I love it. Their songs feel so natural and rustic; which makes them a regular feature on my fishing playlists. Driving home with a fishy ready for the plate, whilst humming along…

  I bumped into fellow blogger Scarlett Ruocco on Twitter and I am sure glad I did. Scarlett is a London based graphic designer and illustrator, who when she isn’t flicking through Vogue magazine (whilst sipping on a fine coffee), creates beautiful artwork influenced by a mixture of picture book illustration and artists such as James Jean. These images are based upon Cornwall and it’s enigmatic coast and have been created especially for Wild Tide by Scarlett, who has ties…

  This video is incredible it shows French man Raphael Dumont (who is 31 and from Chamonix) completing the first ever wingsuit jump with water landing. He doesn’t use a parachute at any point during the flight. He just glides all the way from the top of the mountain down to the lake, eventually skimming the surface and then plopping in. Check. It.
