I’ve been on the lookout for some new headphones and I have finally found the perfect ones. The Skullcandy Grind Wireless on-ear bluetooth headphones from The Board Basement really are awesome. Bluetooth headphones have been around for a while and have always been a great idea but now with most of the latest smartphones ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack all together, they’re becoming a necessity. So what do I really like about the Skullcandy Grind Headphones? Firstly, they sit very…

  My GoPro mount collection is growing a little bit more with the addition of the Camkix GoPro Bobber, a floating hand grip which is suitable for all GoPros. I’ve also bought a CamKix GoPro Body Mount Bundle which includes a chest harness mount, head strap mount and rotating wrist mount. I tested the Bobber and Chest Mount out this weekend while stand up paddleboarding and kayaking (with my Fatyak Kaafu) and thought I’d write a little review about my…

  If you’re a modern outdoorsman or someone with a hectic lifestyle, no doubt you’ll have become stuck in between the rock and the hard place which is the smart phone. You don’t ever feel more at one with nature than when you’re totally off the grid; whilst at the same time, everyone nowadays (for better or worse) feels as if they have a missing limb once they reach 0% battery. In the modern world a phone isn’t just for…

  I’ve recently bought myself a new Olloclip 3-in-1 for my iPhone 5c. You may remember back last year I wrote a review for my 4s Olloclip, I thought it was a great, simple, easy way to get really cool photos on your iphone. Fortunately, the Olloclip for the 5c is just the same. I’ve already given this new Olloclip a good test and it lives upto its predecessors. The photos are all equally awesome. There are just a couple…

  After last weeks post, I thought I’d do it again and put up another quick write up of last week’s highlights. As part of Falmouth Week the Red Arrows came to Falmouth, they did an outstanding display of their aerobatic talents over the harbour. We sat down by the sea wall, legs dangled over the edge with a bottle of beer in one hand and watched the spectacle. As we were watching we wondered, actually how close were they…

  I use an SLR for taking the majority of photos for this blog; for quality and control you really can’t beat one. However I never really take it out and about with me, It’s too big, bulky and I feel like a bit of a fool carrying a camera bag everywhere. This means that the vast majority of photos I take in my day to day life are taken with my iPhone. I reckon that this is probably the…

  Lot’s people don’t use phone cases and say things like “It doesn’t matter, it’s insured!” When I purchased my iPhone I looked into phone insurance and when you really start having a good read up about it, it doesn’t look like it’s worth the money. Not when the price of an iPhone handset is in the hundreds! If you’re likely to have a problem with your phone, it’s going to be because you got it wet or dropped it.…
