Check the state of the surf before you head for the mile-long beach at Praa Sands, between Penzance and Helston, this weekend, to watch round one of the Sola/ Wave Rebel body-boarding grand prix. This is the start of the Cornish world water sports festival, running from March to October, which includes pilot gig racing, surf life-saving and the Cutty Sark tall ships race. One of the festival sponsors is the St Austell brewery, so you can enjoy a glass of Tinners or Wreckers while you admire the rippling muscles.
