Getting all creative…

Doing a little something for a new project, all will be revealed in the fullness… something a bit colourful for a dull day.

Was that all it was…

To quote Jean Carne… seems SoCal are having a 100+ heatwave after a pretty dire Summer and ours seems to be well and truly over. Feeling a bit cheated here. Wet, cold and dire.

Skip Frye Gephart Glass on's

Managed to get hold of some more 125mm Skip Frye Gephart tri fins this week. Very hard to get hold of.
Perfect for any tri fin or maybe a Fish Simmons. £95 for a set, first come first served, email me for details. Bloody lovely they are.

I'd rather go right myself but this overhead beauty went unridden whilst I watched. Peeling barrelling magnificence…

Greenough 4A

Old George knew his onions when he designed the 4A, has to be one of the best and most popular fins of all time amongst the fin cognocenti, if you are a bit unsure of what fin to go for then this could be it, the fin that all others are measured against. Greeeeen O!

(Not sure what the 1A, 2A or 3A were like but the 4A rocks)

(Edit: thought this post seemed familiar, said the self same thing in November, must be true then)


Nothing better than a bit of swell, sunny days and a bit of banter in the lineup. We seem to have missed out on the sunshine bit again this year but at least we still have our mates. Not looking forward to the earplugged up gimp mask days of freezing waves. Wish I had a few more Summer memories from this year to tide me through…

Wax Buddies just in…

These are great, the only wax comb tool thingumy you will ever need. Recycled plastic to boot.
We also have new Matunas Warm Water wax in for all of you jetting off to Maroc, or like me use a slighter harder compound. Oh and Matunas new air fresheners for anyone with a dog or slightly wiffy wetsuit, also like me.

One year on…

…well almost, we have been going 15 months now, how times flies, don't quite know how we forgot to celebrate our first anniversary but we did.

Anyway how about a few giveaways to celebrate?

First 5 people to answer the following question will get a goodie bag of stuff in the post.

Q. Which legend or surfing celebrated his 69th Birthday this week?

A. Email to info@finshack.com, don't forget to include your name and address, good luck!

Been a great five days…

Thank you King Neptune and Danielle, much appreciated. Must have been 150+ people in at 7am on Saturday, but this morning was quiet and still some 2ft+ sets coming through, and not a SUP to be seen and no obstacles on the inside ;) blissed out and tired and ready for some more.

This is the kind of view…

I like when I'm arriving at the beach, admittedly I took this as I was leaving but you get the idea. Why was I leaving? Too tired to lift a tea cup after 6 hours logging in a day…

Some great waves this morning at Polzeath, clean and glassy at 7am. More of the same if not bigger to come. Bloody great!
