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…

  Today you’re going to be reading some quick fire questions I asked to Briony, Josh and Tashi; three illustrators based in Cornwall. I’m not quite sure how I stumbled across this artistic troika on the line, but I’m sure glad I did. I’m going to be asking them about their recently finished and totally brilliant zine Droll Tellers. So what’s a droll teller? Well… before independent book shops, long before megabookshops like Waterstones, wandering ‘droll tellers’ used to tell…

  There is no getting around it, at this time of year it’s pretty chilly in the water. However as with most things there is an upside, the waves can be be better and quieter. So it really is swings and roundabouts! To get over the chillyness I always glove, hood and bootie up in the winter. My old pair of booties have done a fantastic job over the last few years but unfortunately I’ve had to retire them. They’ve…

  I love all the Cornish B’s – Beaches, Beers, Bands and Blogs. When it comes to Cornish blogs, On Serpentine Shores has got to be one of my favourites. I asked Alex from On Serpentine Shores a few questions to find out a little bit more about her and her blog: Tell us a little bit of your back story? Until adulthood I lived on the same road, in the same house, in the same bedroom, in Birmingham. I…

  It’s seems to be brightening up in Cornwall this week. I may have been waking up a bit later for work than normal but it definitely seems to be lighter first thing, adding to this we’ve also had some nice patches of weather (along with some of the usual torrential downpours). Early on Saturday morning my girlfriend and I woke up and decided to go for a walk through Tehidy woods and up and along the North Cliffs coastal…

  When I spotted Sublow on twitter I knew they were a brand I could connect with. Sublow was founded by Rich and Didi, who both met at Falmouth Uni and after finishing have stuck around to enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer. They share a love of music, skating and free-living which is represented in their stylish designs. There are three big things I like the most about Sublow: Number One The design and styling of Sublow clothing…

  Have you heard of the City of Lights? Basically every year in Truro, at the start of the Christmas season and the week before late night shopping starts, there is a parade through Cornwall’s great city. Children from Schools and other organisations make massive lanterns in all shapes and sizes and parade them through the city accompanied by marching bands of different styles. This year there was a great selection of giant lanterns, some of which were even articulated…

  As an outdoors man a quality waterproof coat is right at the top of things to own. I’ve recently upgraded to this Karrimor Elite Alpiniste 2 eVent Jacket and wanted to talk you beautiful people through what to look for when choosing a new waterproof jacket. I’ve chosen this one as it fulfills my three main criteria for keeping dry and comfortable, even if it’s raining sideways. Not only this but it’s well fitted and looks smart. Waterproof –…

  Here at Wild Tide I love nothing more than finding out about talented people working in Cornwall. This week I have been quizzing the up and coming Falmouth based illustrator Rachael Saunders, about her past, present and future. I hope you enjoy the interview and her fantastic images that are dotted throughout the piece. P.S. Don’t forget links to all of her sites are at the bottom of this piece. Tell us a little bit of history about yourself?…

  I’m going on Holiday to the Spainish coast (purposeful typo) on Friday, for 10 days. Now this post isn’t a brag, as my holiday is bittersweet; for in the Cornish town of Falmouth on Friday the 25th and Saturday 26th of October, one of my favourite occasions of the year occurs. Kernow’s largest real ale festival. Organised by CAMRA and held at Princess Pavilions, the festival plays host to over 200 of the finest real ales, ciders and perries……
