We are not a surf company but we made some shorts and this little film to help spread the word about our good friends Hugo and Andy of SAS down in St Agnes, they'll both be speaking about their passion this month at the Carnaby street and Bristol shops on the 19th and 20th. Get yourselves along to meet them. Here's the film we made with the fellas.[vimeo]http://www.vimeo.com/4650461[/vimeo]
On Wednesday 20th May Surfers Against Sewage will be giving a talk in our Carnaby Street (London) store on their work to clean up the waters around Britian.
Tickets are free and there will be beer and snacks available throughout the evening.
Doors open at 7.30pm and the talk should get underway at 7.45pm.
We only have a limited number of tickets available. Should you be interested just pop into the store, or give us a ring, and we will put your name down and give you a ticket - simple as that.
The talks will also be filmed and put onto our DO Lectures website - so make sure you brush your hair and shine your shoes.
An interesting talk, maybe a short film, sparkling beverages, and tasty snacks. All without having to pay one of those outrageous booking fees. There hasn't been a deal like this since Woolies bit the dust.

A solid step forward in environmental surfboard construction methods.
The board has a plywood top, and is just sealed using varnish, Mark who makes them recons you just need to varnish them every couple of years….
