Clunk magazine is something that was birthed by Kieran and Jay after a much awaited surf at their local spot, both of them had been away at university and as a result had neglected each other’s friendship and surfing. It only took one surf to rekindle the beautiful friendship and the natural bounce of ideas came back stronger than ever and thus Clunk Magazine was born.
Having spent 3 years at Falmouth University and managing to graduate I found myself being drawn back home. As the saying goes, home is where the heart is, and my heart is firmly placed in Newquay for now. I have been a keen waterman since the age of 14 and haven’t looked back since. My love for writing and reading lead me to initially write about and photograph surfing but over time I have found my strength in music and lifestyle journalism. I am hoping to create a home for all things art, music and lifestyle with this humble web page and look forward to the bright future of Clunk Magazine.
Viva La Clunk!
Taking a different route to my best man Kieran, I’ve been on a slightly different journey. First completing a Business degree and then a Master’s in Sports Journalism. Having briefly tried living in a city, I am now back in my hometown of Newquay so that I can be in the heart of the UK’s surf scene. I am a competitive surfer, sponsored by Hoax, and if I’m not surfing then you’ll find me on my laptop writing about surfing. I want Clunk to be a space for surfers of all age and ability and want you all to be a part of it too!
Music is the only thing on the planet that matters above literally all else, without exception! Expect lots of live show reviews, the occasional album/EP review, think pieces, yearly lists and more. I play in two rock bands (For The Oracle and Knave), constantly working on new projects in as many different styles as I possibly can, studying musicology/performance at Falmouth Uni this coming September and aspiring to teach music to college students.
Praise Henry Rollins and Pink Floyd.
