Heres to Another Year...

So this is our last post of 2012! Just wanted to wish all our friends, family, customers & suppliers a very happy Christmas, it has been quite a year. Thanks for being a part of it... it would not be the same without you!

We shall leave you with a photo taken by David Muir in Morrocco. It is a amazing shot and just captures the beauty, the stoke and the awe of surfing. We are blessed, amongst it all. See you on the flip side...

Testing out the New Hand Planes

Body surfing is the simplest and some might say purest way to surf. In the last few years it is having a bit of a resurgence. Partly due to new film releases (Come Hell or High Water) and maybe due to a new generation discovering the beauty and stoke of body surfing.

North Devon local Joel Blackman has been on the body surfing train for a wee while. He has recently brought out some new handplanes and has been testing them out at Croyde Beach. Joel has started a range made out of foam, giving you more float and the opportunity to create unique and high performing designs. He is one of the few guys in the UK to be doing this. They are in our store for you to check out. Could make a cool crimbo present.
