It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses. Elwood – The Blues Brothers I’ll start off by saying, there are three good reasons why I think you can wear sunglasses at night or indoors. You have a serious eye problem which you are hiding, You are one of the Blues Brothers, You are in Men in Black. If you are none of those things,…

  Is Cornwall’s Pride from the Tintagel Brewery something for Cornwall to be proud of? The Tintagel Brewery uses pure Cornish spring water to brew Cornwall’s Pride; their spring is found in Tintagel, the birthplace of King Arthur. This beer is truly fit for a king and the taste is as pure and powerful as one too. It has a full bodied malt taste with delicate citrus undertones.

  Going for a second hand surfboard can be a cheap and excellent way of buying a board. I bought my minimal second hand and I haven’t even thought about regretting it.   It can take a long time to find the right board for you though, buy a peach and you’ll be as happy as Larry but get your hands on a turkey and you’ll wish you just went out and brought a spanking new one.   Things to…

The Tarpon is made in several different sizes the 100, 120, 140 and 160, the Tarpon 100 is the smallest of the pack but is still a decent 10 foot / 305cm.

He puts out another cracking performance in Sinister which is an awesome horror film. I thought it was very creepy…

  Lets start off with this:     The Eden Project looks unbelievably awesome at night. It’s got to be one of the best and most unusual venues around, because of this it manages to pull in acts that wouldn’t otherwise come to Cornwall. I love it as a venue, yes it takes a long time to walk out after the gig and the car park can be a bit of a nightmare, but the atmosphere is so well worth…

  I’m busy getting ready for our Halloween horror fest here at Wild Tide, following on from the 90’s here are my top 5 horror movies from the 00′s. Hope they make you hide behind the sofa: 28 Days Later Probably in my opinion the best zombie film, the zombies have a visceral, frantic, deadly quality which is lacking in a surprising amount of big zombie films (World War Z). The action is always really intense and the film is…

Polarized lenses stop reflections and glare, I’m not going to go particularly into how they do this because Its a bit boring and I don’t fully understand it!
