From battened together wooden boards to a 70 million pounds a year industry; people in Cornwall are being asked to help chart the history of surfing in the county.

Researchers want to interview surfers from the 1950's to the present day as part of the First Wave project.

Peter Robinson from north Devon's Museum of British Surfing says it will build a priceless archive: "There are people in every region of the UK who have played some part in surfing's development. It's really about capturing their individual stories of their surfing experiences. Of how they got into surfing, why they got into surfing and what they get out of it.

"There are generations of surfers who have already left us from the pre-war period. We've been lucky enough to record some interviews but it's a case of making sure that we record history to make sure they're not lost for future generations."
