Fin tidy

Made myself a 'fin tidy' this morning, bit of reclaimed hardwood, power plane and router, hours work, job done. Should be good for a 'point of sale' device for the surfplug day tomorrow too. Just need to replace my fins with some bargains for the morning now… see you there!

Rob is coming still even though we don't have loads of people  (what a good sort he is) So see you there between 10 and 2. Sorry for all the confusion!

I'll bring along some fins and stuff, Steve will be serving up Bacon rolls and tea, what more could you ask!

There's always somewhere you can go if the crowds bother you, personally as long as the sun is shining and there are waves then I'm happy. I'm all for making everyone's holiday a good one, as our good friend Chris says 'Happy waves'.

T's off to the printers today, very excited, should be in the shop in about three weeks. Just in time for the 'Summer'. Already sold a few on pre-order, thanks Mum. We should have new fins and T's from Captain Fin as well as. Roll on August!

This was Wednesday before that storm hit, was starting to build, just remind yourselves it's mid-July. Now it's Friday and still messed up and not so good. Lots of trees down from the wind last night. Hopefully it will clean up and the sun come out, nice to dream! :)

Magic Seaweed anyone?

Steve made an amazing Seaweed and Cheese pancake from Sophie's foraged seaweed yesterday. The kelp 'tortilla' chips were ace too. Not for sale as yet, but you never know, Padstein eat your heart out!

no surf

Couldn't find a wave, walked the dog, found this. Does life get much better?

D Fin

As part of the new 'I'm losing my mind I keep seeing surf related stuff everywhere' thread, here's a well solid D Fin perfectly formed and proof the Fred and Wilma did surf.

Summer Sesh

Don't often get to do a evening session, had a great time in my new German Dungeon suit, thanks Stevo!
Few okay'ish sets came through, fun time was had.
Summer feels like it's gonna be great…

Surfplug Day reminder

If you are thinking of coming please let me know asap, had lot's of 'maybe's' but Rob has to drive down from Devon so just to be fair to him and give him an idea of numbers.

Facebook and ting

Finally did it, not entirely sure why, but we are on it. FB that is… search for 'Finshack' next time you're on there. Really it will add immeasurable glee to your life, honestly.

Oh, also, I'm just off to Nine Plus to pick up some fins, full inventory should be on the site by Monday.

Then off to get wet, looks pretty good today! :)

Spurious I know, but I keep seeing surfers everywhere…


Some amazing poppies in the woods near us at the moment, colours are spectacular. Thinking of a new log/fin in these shades, maybe with a lime tint on the underside… whadya think Zeph?
