A bit belated this one but here it goes anyway. James has been doing amazingly well on his quest for world domination, that's probably a bit strong but hey. Last month he was competing in Spain in a World Qualifying series event and came third which means he has qualified for the Longboard world championships in Makaha Hawaii which will take place later in the year.  Woohoo!

A couple of weeks ago he was competing in the English championships and got runner up and then last weekend it was the first round of the British Longboard Union Tour and got another second.

Also he is on the cover of the new British Longboard magazine which is out at the end of the month and he has an interview in it as well

GO JAMES

riding solo?!

The sports that we're into aren't team sports...they are sort of solitary really.  But if you ask anyone about their best days riding, they will always say a day when they've been out with an awesome group of mates who inspire them.  There are certain friends who push me more to ride faster and try something new.

I just stumbled upon this edit of an interview with a snowboarder called Jess Kimura.  It's from an all girl's production Peep Show, which was released this winter.  Anyway she sums up that feeling of riding with your mates perfectly.  It's a really sweet video, so check it out...

20% off the weekend.

Well bank holiday weekend is around the corner and things are getting a bit warmer... (That said the sea is as cold as ever).

So if you’re looking to stay warm (New bay surf Thermal) or cool down (Good old fashioned tees). Not only do we have the works but we have 20% off the lot until midday Monday. That includes all our awesome samples. After a good surf you may find yourself sat around a camp fire wrapped up in one of our cuddy shirts thinking 'best weekend ever'.

You can use this offer online and in our other shops as well - click here for more details on that.

This film festival on Saturday sounds great fun, wish it was in Bristol.....

The first ever Adventurists Film Festival

For six glorious, mayhem-filled years The Adventurists' teams have been filming their mischievous, daring and often downright shocking exploits.

The first ever Film Festival will be a showcase of the very finest of these films made while thundering across continents in ridiculously unsuitable vehicles. There'll be talks from adventurers and film makers and an exclusive screening of a documentary about the Rickshaw Run and Mongol Rally. Plus of course the winning film will be announced by the judging panel and the prizes awarded and backs slapped heartily.

The mac daddy of adventure films, Benedict Allen, is giving a talk at 2.45pm. As the pioneer of filming authentic journeys for television he has made 6 TV series for the BBC, written 10 books and been described as “part of television history” by the Director General of the BBC. A proper legend of adventure.

27th March 11:30 - 6pm at Coronet Cinema, 103 Notting Hill Gate, London W11 3LB

BBC help out the thrillseekers

The BBC have gotten themselves a bit of a bad rep lately.

However, they do have a website that tells you what free, fun, adventurous things you can do in your area. Bristol has scuba diving, snorkelling and indoor climbing. When I get around to trying them, i'll let you know how I get on.

For the thrillseekers out there.....
