Surf's up, 30s style in the heart of the Cornish Riviera

Amateur film 1935 3 mins Silent


Everybody’s going surfing in the heart of the Cornish Riviera. This 1930s promotional short may have been made before the town crowned itself Britain’s surf capital but that doesn’t stop these holidaymakers hitting the waves. It’s silent, so feel free to add your own Cornish Beach Boys mash-up soundtrack.
