Watersports

This is for all you Sea Dogs out there, this is crammed full of interesting reads about Fishing, Kayaking, Snorkelling, Spearfishing, SUP, Surfing and anything else on or around the water.

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.…

  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 love swimming, but I’ve got to admit – it can get a little boring. I think it is especially so in a pool doing long distance. I don’t see why even the most avid swimmer would disagree with me. Back and forth for an hour or so is pretty darn tedious. There has to be a way of making it a little bit more interesting? Surely? Right?     I’ve always been interested in ways to make the…

    For some time now, I’ve been after something to wear outside whilst fishing, camping and just generally adventuring.I recently stumbled across the Tiveden Vest from Swedish company Pinewood and it was exactly what I was after. If you’re observant you may have even noticed me wearing it in other posts. I had already heard of Pinewood and knew as with most Swedish companies they are really at the forefront of outdoor clothing manufacturing. I guess it’s because their…

    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…

  Having caught your first bass, working out what to do with it can be a tricky thing. The jubilation of all your hard work coming together and you landing a bass is one of the best feelings out there. However, after you’ve put the poor chap to night, the question “What now?” is at first a tricky one to answer. As I tackled my basstastic catch yesterday, I thought back to my first bass and thought it would have…

    If you were to ask most teachers what their favourite part of their job was, I’m positive they’d say it was the altruism and how it’s a platform to make a positive impact on the lives of kids. Personally, I also love the people I work with and how constantly funny the children are, such a rewarding role. However, high up on every teacher’s list of their favourite parts of their job must be the holidays, in particular,…

    My friends and I are lovers of unusual missions and adventures and any idea like “I wonder if we can do this?” is always met with a response of “challenge accepted!” So when I spotted an ingenious invention on the Decathlon website (now one of my most visited websites apparently!) we had to get it and have a go. The sporting creation in question is a portable basketball hoop simply called The Hoop by Kipsta.   Basically, it’s…
