A Cornish surfing champion is teaming up with the National Trust to collect the memories of Cornish surfers from the early days of the sport.

Robyn Davies will be collecting images and thoughts for a project on the development of surfing as a sport.

Ms Davies, surf project officer for the National Trust, is hoping to get more young surfers involved in the volunteer work of the Trust.

She will be organising surfing lessons to attract new members.

She said: "The surf project is all about instilling a great love and ownership for our coastline in people's hearts.

"Ultimately, I hope that more people will want to take part, no matter how small, in helping to look after this wonderful environment."
