So here I find myself tucked into my sleeping bag and in the familiar territory of a mates couch, on the road again for a howies catalogue photoshoot. The task I have been set it to visit a selection of howies team riders and spend some time with them, documenting their lives through photos, in the place they know the most, that is, home. First up on my list is Holly Fifield in deep west cornwall. Holly's a talented surfer and a lovely lady to boot. We drank tea in her little windswept cottage in St Just, discussed surfboards over coffee at her dad's café, rode bikes on the busiest country lane in cornwall and surfed fun waves at a beach down the road (where we bumped into fellow team rider, Nick Radford).
All in all, it's been a grand few days down here.
I leave couch number one, tomorrow morning, destined for mates couch number two in Bristol and skateboarding instead of surfing.
Fingers crossed the next couch is as comfy as this one.
