The Cornish Surf Company is the venture of lifelong friends Mike Everall, a former Royal Navy aircraft engineer and Paul Franklin, who has recently relocated back to Cornwall from America.

Everall commented: “This beautiful county is surrounded by some of the best surfing reefs, isolated coves and world renowned swells. We want to offer the equipment to enable water sport enthusiasts to get out there and enjoy what is on our doorstep.”

Visitors to the website can browse for anything from a new wetsuit to a buoyancy aid, with the promise of strong customer service support.

Franklin added: “We want to make the customers shopping experience easy and enjoyable. Giving them sound technical advice on any queries they may have. By having that personal touch we hope that they will become repeat customers.”
