Who's that girl?

Hazel started work at howies today helping Louise in our garment technical division.

We first got to know her when she sent us a hand embroidered letter.

Then she raced in our Strath Puffer 24 hour team with Ruben, Hicksey and Alastair Humphreys. She rode the fastest lap and was just beaten to most laps by Alastair.

She's a biker, surfer and snorkler. And has designed her own tech range after graduating form the performance sportswear design course at Falmouth.

I think she will put us to shame at next years bike races. Check out her cross bike.

So when a zip just works, a pocket feels right, a base layer hugs not rubs, a dress dresses you as it should and a loved shirt goes unnoticed on your back day in day out, it's because Lou and Hazel did their work well.

The Blue Mile

Photographer Jurgen Freund has spent the last 18 months photographing the beautiful underwater world known the Coral triangle (an area covering the Philippines, Malaysia & Indonesia, down to Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands) as part of WWF's Blue Mile campaign (-that's the WWF as in the 'panda' one, not the Wrestling one....)

The aim of the campaign is to highlight how beautiful and diverse marine life is, reminding people about the effects climate change and pollution will have on this very vulnerable environment and the creatures that call it home.

There will be a fund raising event held by WWF in North London on september the 4th where people are encouraged to swim or paddle one mile, but they want people all up and down the county to hold their own events too. Click here for more information on that.

SAS (surfers against sewage) are also running their fundraiser too, click here to take a look at Ade's blog from a little while ago and see how you can help on shores a little closer to home.

Mini Ramp for Skateistan

  • 6 July 2011



You may remember the mini ramp from catalogues past. 5ft tall, 16ft wide, tons of fun? Well, sadly the time has come to say goodbye.

It's been skated in a field. It's been skated in a barn. It's now not being skated in our warehouse.

We'll be putting the ramp up for auction on eBay towards the end of August and the winning bid will be donated to Skateistan who are giving kids in Afghanistan and opportunity to escape their daily lives through the outlet of skating.

We've got a few fantastic people on board to help us spread the word who have contributed to a tidy bundle of skating gear.

A signed Girl deck, and bundle from Form Distribution

Shoes from Vans

A custom setup from Shiner

And a years subscription to Sidewalk / Ride magazine from Factory media

Even the local courier will help ship it to the new owner for cost.

This appealing lot will hopefully help raise some money for a fantastic cause.

If you want to pledge something to the auction, please get in touch. Or if you just want to help, spread the word with a tweet. We'll be using the hashtag #howiesminiramp to spread the word.

Life is complicated. Sport is simple.

Cardigan Street Race

The Street Race is starting to really take shape. Posters are back from the printers and street closures are approved for the race circuit.

So yesterday, we all combed our hair to present a £2000 cheque to Velo Teifi, our way of getting involved to kickstart the race.

Bank of howies Cheque

It's guaranteed to be an action-packed event acting as the final in the Welsh National Criterium Championships. The route is going to be fast, with the best riders in Wales coming to Cardigan to race at speeds of up to 40mph through the town centre.

The streets may be closed, but the race is very much open. howies will be racing for the coveted "Fastest Trader in the West" title and if you're interested in breaking the speed limit through town, you'd better get your entry form to get involved.

The day's not just for racers. If you can help marshal, set up or pack up, please get in touch with event organisers Velo Teifi.

There are also plenty of great spots along the route to watch and cheer riders along.

In case you're wondering what that all looks like, Ruben's just popped out and filmed a quick lap:
