Riding the crest of a wave • First recorded by Capt Cook in 1778, surfing is more passion than pastime, finds Ben Lerwill, on meeting a maker of wooden boards that last a lifetime

If I be waspish, best beware my sting • They might be a pain at your summer picnic, but wasps are also voracious predators of other insects and some of Nature’s most important pest controllers, argues Seirian Sumner

Bags of style • For the beach and beyond, these tote bags hold it all, says Hetty Lintell
