Web design in Bude and surrounding areas using WordPress. This is an example of a parallax web design with a flowing background.

I create websites, take photos, make videos and write good copy. If you are looking for an example of my clean, easy to manage and  well designed business packages you should have a look at my business site for other web designs and themes. It shows the useful way that pages can be arranged to maximise your customers interest and is easily managed and changed by you. All my sites are designed to be responsive to phones, pads and new TV’s. Ideal if you need people to find you easily whatever method they are using to access the web.

This is my personal blog and a space for me to post photos and talk about my interests. Popular posts are arranged below. There is a mix of photography, videos, plenty of articles on surfing and some recipes and talk on wine from my time as a chef and pub owner. I hope you are entertained- Lee 

 

long exposure surfing

I took a visit to the local pointbreak on Friday- it was a beautiful day and a perfect swell, not too big and really lined up along the point. I sat up on a good view point and took a lot of photos trying to capture some speed of the inside section.

Surf Season

The Middle week of November 2014 has seen some really good swells hitting the Cornish coast. Here are two pointbreaks that really lit up with long period North Atlantic winter lows.  

Scilly Isles World Gig Rowing Championships

  The Pilot Gig World Championships were recently held in the Scilly Isles- I was lucky enough to compete. It was my first visit to the islands, and after arriving on a packed ferry at St Mary’s I saw several gigs pulling across the waters between islands in training for the upcoming races. On the long beach at Hugh Town a great many teams were lined up. Multi coloured boats covered the sands from one…

Snoozing all the way home- spotify playlist

In the not so distant days of home taping there would always be a mix tape for the long drive home from a party. Oh those endless raves in pine forest glades, those last minute drives across the country to visit far away friends and the long drive home. I love to dj when possible, and I am as happy to see a nodding foot or shoulder as much as…

Boscastle and Crackington Gig Club

The local gig club recently asked me if I could make a film to help with fundraising for a new set of racing oars. I made this short to go with their crowdfunder website. If you require a short film or advertising promotion for social media have a look at my business site at lee-robertson.com. It shows other examples of my work and an idea of prices.

Winter storms 2014

This winter saw some of the largest seas and winds for many years. There were few good surfing days and lots of destruction around the coastline. It seemed like most beaches in cornwall had some kind of damage. The sands were scoured from the reefs to such an extent it might be months or more before they return. At the height of the storms I had a photo assignment to find some…

The Bird

I put this film together for ‘The Cruel and Curious Sea’ a great exhibition of arts. When I released it on Vimeo it really took off with nearly 2000 views in the first couple of days. I was stoked! The Bird from Lee Robertson on Vimeo.

A cold day and a big swell

Yesterday saw a big lined up swell hit the coast. Temperatures remained around freezing, and a cold afternoon brought few surfers to tackle the shifting peak and variable sizes that broke down the point. Those who did brave it were well rewarded with long waves and big open faces, as well as some deep dark pits if you wanted to stall through the inside section.

Old Smithy Invitational 2012

Sunday October 22nd The Old Smithy Invitational surf comp coincided with some of the biggest waves of the year. A huge swell was forecast with long period, although no one was quite sure how big it would get. As I arrived at the beach in the late morning there was already a palpable air of excitement, with large swells marching into the bay. A few of the competitors were already out,…

Triumph Live with Reef

Triumph Live was on this weekend at Mallory Park Racetrack, with Reef headlining on the Friday night. We got there early allowing a visit to the factory, where we were really looked after and had a tour around the production line. In the late afternoon we went to see the Demon Drome, and after the Reef gig, we had a chat with the guys who run it and we ended…

StringerBessant in Trutnov

I just got back from a trip with StringerBessant to Trutnov Festival in the Czech Republic. The Festival is one of the oldest European pop festivals and has an eclectic line up of music, poetry and spoken word. In the true nature of big festivals it has that sense of a gathering of the tribes. A DNA imprint that in the summertime tells us to go and camp and share…

Car Park Attendant

Some years ago I was working on a film on the south bank in central London, it was about this time of year. We would begin just before light, so very early starts. London was going through a heatwave at the time and the sun bouncing off the Shell Building turned Jubilee Gardens into a crucible. It was so hot I called a surf shop in the city and they…

Cornwall to Bucharest

Last thursday Chrissy woke me up asking if I wanted a job driving to Romania. Now this is not the thing I normally do. I had spent the last few months working at writing and other homebound jobs, here by the beach in North Cornwall. It was a friends company that needed a van full of equipment at Bucharest airport by Monday morning. Within a couple of hours I was…

His and Hers

  First morning: A mosquito fizz in his ear, one eye opening and a realisation it was the approach of dawn. He rose padding on bare feet across the grass mat in the basic kitchen, enjoying the texture. Yawning and loving  the warmth of the pre morning, he felt just a slight chill on his waking body. He found some shorts on the door handle and pulled them on as…

In Praise of The Impossible Dream

‘An ingenious gentleman from La Mancha’, was written by Cervantes in 1610. A novel about Don Quixote who spends much of his time chasing impossible dreams. And for many years he has struck a beautiful chord in the hearts of those who appreciate the valour in tilting at windmills. Is it a quixotic fantasy or a worthwhile endeavour? For the doubters they are windmills, for the optimists: ‘They may be giants’ and for the dreamers themselves, well in public at least they should have no doubts. The novel has been voted in the best fiction ever since people voted on these things, and like all great novels it is constantly refreshing in the minds of readers as the generations flow down the centuries. In an interview in 2005 Vonnegut said…

Oxtail burgers

Oxtail has a gorgeous sticky meaty flavour, and makes an impressive burger, it takes a long time and this recipe is intensive. You couldn’t call this burger fast food, but I love making them for the indulgence and a what I’d say is the tastiest burger you’ve ever tried. I had the idea from a restaurant in Spain where my wife and I sat at a bar while the chefs bought us the most amazing tapas, it was a modern spanish menu with a fusion of international styles. Plenty of long cooked meat dishes, some melting Pata Negra hams and some amazing ceviche and spanish sushi type tasters. The service was fast and professional, with a great choice of wine by the glass. It could cost you a small fortune, but also…
