This week I’ve been indulging in the most primitive of coastal pastimes, skimming stones. It’s one of those brilliant activities that everyone and their dad is a professional at. My girlfriend and I went down to a beach on the south coast when the sea was mighty flat and practiced our skills. Everybody has an opinion on the two main skimming elements: Stone choice and throwing technique. I’m definitely of the “get low to the ground and chuck it…

  In Greek Mythology, Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympian Gods (and little brother to Zeus). He is ruler of the ocean and is called the “God of the Sea”. Poseidon is usually depicted as an old, angry man with curly hair, a beard, carrying a mega pointy trident. I’ve always thought that Poseidon has a bit of an image problem. The most recent time he updated his wardrobe was a couple of thousand years BC! Looking all grumpy…

  As you might have read in one of my posts last week, I’ve been thinking about being a bit more healthy. I thought one easy way of upping my fitness was getting back into running. One of the things that used to stop me from running was my lack of the proper gear. Like anything, running without the right kit isn’t anywhere near as enjoyable as when you have the proper equipment. The less fun something is, the more…

  The 6 Nations have been making my weekends recently and as you can see from the highlights below the England vs Ireland game on Saturday wasn’t an exception… When it comes to watching the rugby with friends down the pub, normally clothing choices are pretty straightforward and a white shirt with a red rose on it usually does the trick. Sometimes however it’s nice to mix it up and that’s where Raging Bull clothing comes in. Raging Bull was…

  The weather has been mighty cold the last couple of months and I’ve been making the most of it by capturing the freezing mornings with my camera. It’s been so chilly in fact that down by a local river, icicles have been forming from splashes the water makes on it’s way down the valley and out to sea. I enjoy a brisk morning as much as the next man but after a while crouched on the cold ground, trying…

  Cornish people are obsessed with the weather, I think it’s because the weather varies so much down here. It goes from super hot, pretty much tropical summers to torrential rain and stormy winters. For January and February unfortunately it’s only been the latter. Inspired by the constant discussion about the weather I decided to purchase this awesome T shirt from 8 Ball.   If for some reason you’ve managed to miss the near constant stormy weather, I’ve been kind…

  You may be aware that recently the weather has been, a little bit (what I would call) iffy! Even when it’s not hailing or raining, it’s only been a matter of time before it starts up again. In a tiny break between the rain we made a sprint for the coast in my T4; to meander along the coastal path and check out some of the splashing and crashing of the ocean and listen to the whirl of the…
