Before Boogie There Was Belly...


...boarding and as this video will show, this can only reinforce the opinion of some that the English and now the Cornish are, indeed, a nation of eccentrics. I spotted Perranporth's very own Ian "Beaner" McD sporting his club cap and a close fitting pair of (even by Speedo standards) budgie smugglers. More on the "sport" here (though needs a little update?).

(I've been meaning to give mycornwall.tv a mention here for a while now. The Falmouth based media company started up last year with a mission to capture online some of the cool stuff that's happening in this most excellent county/country of Cornwall/Kernow. They've an eclectic mish mash of stuff on their site and more than a few tasty surf related goodies. They also claim to employ young media graduates "meaning that the money spent developing them is reinforced by local employment opportunities, which in turn creates wealth in the local community". Part funded by the ERDF - which I was pleased to see - since one of the few whinges I have about living here is the irrational Europhobia which is peddled by some who should know better. )

That was awesome! I just can't find people that them to do stuff like that. The kids are all hyped up on their shortboards and the guys and gals my age just want to fish.

I miss all the fun people and activities.
