Carve surfing magazine and Sharps Offshore Pilsner have come together to say thank you to the surfing and surfing lifesaving communities of Cornwall and Devon who selflessness ensured the safety of beach goers during the heatwave of spring 2020. 

We want to raise funds for vital equipment for the volunteer beach patrols that made 1,000s of interventions and are sure to make 1,000s more keeping the public safe on our amazing beaches.

In late May large waves, spring tides and hot weather and the easing of Covid19 travel restrictions combined to form a perfect storm. 

As people left their houses to head to the beach rips, tides, and big waves made for dangerous sea conditions for those not used to such conditions. 

Fortunately the surfing and surf lifesaving communities had foreseen the problems. They launched voluntary Beach Patrols with basic equipment and quickly established safety procedures. It was the biggest mobilisation of the coastal lifesaving communities we have ever seen. The Beach Patrols offered advice to prevent people getting into difficulties, set up observation patrols and 100s of volunteers around the south west prevented 1000s of serious incidents, and performed numerous rescues.

We would just like to say.


Thank you for your foresight.

Thank you for your courage.

Thank you for your selflessness.

Thank you for being there.

For never judging.

For offering your experience.

And giving up your time.

To help others.

Here's to the lifeguards, lifesavers, the carpenters, the builders, the teachers, and the furloughed.

Here's to the legends, the surf clubs and all the heroes. 




Your dedication is not forgotten.

Here's to Offshore days.

This film is dedicated to the lifesavers the funds will provide vital lifesaving equipment.
