Great interview with Steve Croft from Empire surfboards over on the Kernowkalling blog. I'm lucky enough to have my 9'6 log made by him and it's a fantastic board that always leaves me with a smile on my face after a surf on it. He also made Whip's Goblin Door and Lumus boards. If you are looking for something a little different to ride you'd struggle to do better than speak to Steve. Check out his website here.

That there London

Managed a trip with Peek to the big city last weekend, our first weekend away from Rhys. Totally avoided any Olympic things and had a really fun weekend of seeing old friends, eating and drinking. The sun also appeared and I managed to get out for a skate for the first time in ages with Barrows finest tattoo expert Smell. Stockwell and Kennington were the order of the day, lots of fun hacking about but Kennington lines were ruined by poor drainage. The new stuff is good though, go schralp it. Took a few pics to document the fact I made it out for a skate.

Anthony's friend Matt rock n rolling. Rad fella although
I felt a bit odd being the only person not having been drawn on.
Anthony aka Smell rocking the other way.
And a 5-0 off the end at Kennington. Lovely muddy puddles eh?

At last

After a few weeks of missing swell through illness and other comittments I finally got in on the weekend. Not a great swell but a fun surf all the same due to it being spent in the company of the soon to be hitched Mr Bisson and the soon to be a lucky-bastard-surfing-Panama Mr Poulet. Surfing with mates always makes it a good time.

Shot not from the session but our first surf at Tonel in Portugal. Poulet laying down a heavy cutty.

We are really missing a bit of sunshine and surf this year. So much so I've resorted to looking at old pictures to remind me what it's like. Pacific Beach, San Diego 2009 taken with the UWS (which seems to have gone missing).

Parque Radical!

Some hastily taken pictures from the skate day on Whip's Portugal stag do. Johnny Haywire took some more, and shot some video so maybe if you keep checking out the Confusion zine blog you might get to see them. Albuifeira park is pretty rad, like Truro Plaza should have been (ie. some decent ransition along with the blocks), so if you find yourself stuck in that particular area of tourist package holiday hell then you'll have something sick to escape too.

Right amount

One guy with the right amount of style.

And his section from one of my most watched videos when I was a grommit. And say what you like about Pennywise I still love 'em.

Up and at em

Having a small child waking you up in the middle of the night sometimes pays dividends. View from the car at Woolacombe for last saturday's dawn raid.
