Hope things have been going good at Howies over the summer.

I have been flat out racing for the last couple of months with things going really good until a few weeks ago when I picked up an injury on my knee. It shouldn't take too long to recover but its put a bit of a downer on whats been a good year so far.

A few weeks ago I finished 7th at the Euopean Championships which were held in Birmingham. Please find attached a couple of photos from that race. It was my main focus this year to do well there. I was happy to make the final but a mistake at the start cost me a podium place which was the ultimate aim. 7th in Europe isnt bad though I guess...

I'm starting to get ready for next year once the injury has cleared up and training to gain qualification for the Olympics, which will be at the Worlds, again in Birmingham at the end of May. It will be a big month as Im getting married at the end of April! Im really positive that with the way things are going I should gain a place to race in London but am not looking past this race as thats the main goal right now.

Speak to you soon,

Just had a photo through from Hollie who is on the AW11 Photoshoot.

They have been in the middle of nowhere all day, lucky them!

Sounds like it is super organised thanks to Millie – Producer Extraordinaire.

The office is quiet without them all.

Getting out there.

Scott and I headed East yesterday to visit our friends Sara and Mickey who run a lovely shop called Flow in Hay- on-Wye

They have stocked howies for quite a while now, some of our true believers.

Sara, Mickey and I spent a long time talking about our passions for snowboarding and skiing.  Scott and Mickey spent a long time talking about kayaking.

We showed them the AW11 range and then ate yummy soup and gorgeous homemade scones.

It was good to get out of the office, meet up with nice people and chat to Scott.

If you are ever in Hay-on-Wye pop in and say hi to them, the shop is full of lovely things


Sold out? Dig for victory.

When you’re looking through the sale section, is there anything from the 2010 winter range that you wanted that is sold out?

Try our little London store on 0207 287 2345 and they will run down to the stock room to see if they have  any of the products us here in Cardigan Bay no longer have.

They are not carrying any of the items in the “clearout” section of the sale only the Winter range in the main product sections.

Do some digging and you may find what you are after.
