We love this Surf Map of Great Britain by Kernow Map Co, lovingly researched and designed by a Cornish surfer. Printed in Cornwall and available framed too, it features over 200 surf spots around the country. A beautiful visual checklist for every British surfer, or something lovely to hang in your house.

The new Seafarer’s Gin from the Rosemullion Distillery is a peppery gin made from coastal botanicals and seaweed inspired by the salty air and stormy seas that crash against the coastline of Cornwall. Pour neat, on the rocks or with a Cornish tonic.

Local lad Sam Bleakley is a surfer, writer and presenter – in this book on Mindfulness and Surfing he casts a fresh perspective on surfing, exploring how riding the waves can be the ultimate meditation. Meditating on one of nature’s greatest elements—its salty swells, flows and peaks—he shares life lessons in mindfulness that surfer and non-surfer alike will relish.
Even in summer everyone needs a good jumper in their wardrobe – Seasalt launched their mens collection a couple of seasons ago and we’re liking this new addition – a plain lambswool traditional fisherman style jumper, inspired by the Cornish coast.
