Thousands of people watched Snoop Dogg perform at Cornwall's largest surf festival last night. Huge crowds are expected on the final day of the Boardmasters today, with BRIT Award winner's Bastille headlining the music site.
Speaking last night surf commentator Nick Williams gave us a round up of the day's action and what we can expect for the final day.
"Boardmasters day 4 saw another great day at Fistral beach where we completed the Animal Pro Junior competition in the waves. St Ives ripper Harry De Roth took the win closely followed by Angus Scotney. We also saw the Grom Masters U16s Final with Harry DeRoth this time coming 2nd and Angus Scotney nipping him to 1st. We ran the SunGod Women¹s Open all the way through the semi-finals and expect a great clash in tomorrow's final. We managed tohost the Urban Beach Air Show with Luis Eyre taking the win in the smaller tide and a great way to finish the day at the beach. We're expecting more surf in for tomorrow and begin with the Davidoff Cool Water Men¹s Longboard Pro and Men¹s Open from 10am. We'll also be hosting the SunGod Women¹s Open Finals, Longboard and Men¹s Open Finals presentations in the afternoon.
The RNLI has begun its "Respect the Water" campaign in Newquay. 32 lives were lost on the south west coastline last year and it wants beach-goers and surfers to take more care.
The number of people who died along Britain's coast in 2013 was the highest in four years, the RNLI said as it launches a campaign calling on people to Respect the Water.
Figures show that 167 people died in water-related accidents and a further 368 were rescued by lifeguard crews after getting into difficulties.
Cold water shock, rip currents and fatigue were common factors in contributing to accidents at the coast while alcohol played a part in 28 deaths last year.
As the temperature continues to soar RNLI coastal safety manager Ross Macleod called for people to stay safe around the water.
"We really feel that that number is too high and we need to do something about it," he said.
The campaign will be launched in Brighton today by England rugby player James Haskell who said: "This is about being smart and safe when you are there."

Nearly 400 paddlers have taken part in this year's Joe Way Paddle for life in Newquay raising money for the Joe Way appeal. The original Paddle for Life started after lifeguards from Fistral Beach held a Joe Way memorial paddle to raise money for charity in 2008.
Joe Way from Cornwall died from a rare genetic disease when he was just four years old. So far the appeal has raised more than £125,000 pounds and helped build Cornwall's first children's hospice.
Matt Way said “As always the support was huge and after fearing a poor turn out whilst setting up in the rain we had the busiest event to date, I’m sure Joe would be very proud of what has been achieved in his memory”.
