EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the carefree days of the 1920s, where a group of eight surfers strike a pose on the sandy shores of Perranporth in Cornwall. The sun-kissed beach is teeming with leisure and excitement as these adventurous souls proudly display their wooden belly and body boards. The surfers' infectious enthusiasm is palpable, as they bask in the glory of their beloved sport against the stunning backdrop of Retreat Rocks. With waves crashing gently behind them, it's evident that this picturesque location was chosen for its perfect blend of beauty and thrill. Photographer Arthur William Jordan skillfully captures this moment frozen in time, immortalizing not only the individuals but also an era defined by exploration and outdoor pursuits. Their confident stances exude both camaraderie amongst friends and a deep connection to nature. As we gaze upon this remarkable image, we are reminded that surfing has long been an integral part of Cornish culture. It symbolizes freedom, resilience, and a profound respect for the power of the ocean. These surfers embody all these qualities as they embrace each wave with unwavering determination. This print from Royal Cornwall Museum serves as a nostalgic reminder that even amidst life's uncertainties, there will always be moments when we can escape to our favorite beaches or engage in exhilarating sports like surfing – connecting us to our roots while igniting our spirits with pure joy.
