Great 4 weeks at Hells Mouth this year – not so hot on the surf though and it will go down as one of the worst for many years, but it was more than made up for by a record number of longboard sales. Travel Boards, Stingers, Retro Carves all sold out and lots of Sidewalk Surfers sold. The Buffalo decks were the first to go on the upper end priced boards. By upper end I mean £150 tops which is not a lot of money when the hardware includes, Paris or Bear trucks and Abec 11 Flashbacks or Tunnel Tarantulas/Rocks!
It was great to meet up again with old friends and meet new from the Cheshire and Manchester circuit, London, Brighton, Germany, the States, Forest of Dean, Europe and all over.
Still a few Sidewalk Surfers left with some excellent deals. Contact me for more details, donny
The most fab thing for us during this summer’s surf scene was our lad, 6 years and 3 months old, Ocean’s first stand up surfing on an old 6ft6″ pop out at “shops” top end of the bay. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this was down to his riding longboards on the tarmac. I would never have believed he would have progressed from body board to surfboard so effortlessly and it has to be due to his riding the Still Stoked Retro Carve since he was two and the Stinger since 2013.
