Cornwall BMX Racing Awards

Last Saturday night was probably one of the most proudest nights Ive ever had as a Dad. Since last October myself and Jago have been travelling every weekend to Cornwall BMX Racing Club at Blackwater near Truro. We have been riding so much and it paid of at the awards on Saturday night.

Jago came away with Best Newcomer Boy, 4th in 6&under boys in the Cornish Champs, and a Silver Medal skills award. His old man manged to get a 2nd in the Masters Cornish Champs. So stoked as I'm feeling fitter and stronger and most of all happier!!

The top photo is our little crew down in Penzance who all won trophies and two number one plates for Cornwall. We did alright down in the Wild West.

The Sea Wolf x GulfStream

Check this beauty shaped by Jools and finished his team at GulfStream Surfboards. Introducing the Sea Wolf. This is a stunning board that looks like its name sake, a board that can take what it needs to survive!! This looks like a board that would be howling (excuse the pun) down the line and so much fun to ride. Its a board that can be custom ordered for your specs, Single Fin, Quad or as Jools say "or your own crazy concoction". The board shown is 6'4" and at £645.00 this board is on my wish list and would sit so nicely within my quiver....Just need to sell something now!!

Sick Shots

 Just come across these amazing shots from Dylan Gordon of Cyrus Sutton on a simple little road trip. Some of the nicest shots i've seen in a long long time. I miss shooting surfers from the land and had a brief stint in the water too but circumstance got in the way and its been 18 months since i took a shot with a DSLR, but I shall get back to doing both at some point and photographers like Dylan give me a real incentive. You can check out more of Dylans work at www.terasulife.com and also check out some more great stories and photography.

"Maaaaate I do love a left"!!

As and Aussie once said to me surfing the Wreck in Byron Bay "Maaate I do love a left"... never forgot it and have to say this morning was great fun. Took a few on the head but also had a few sick ones. The sets were as good and as shapely as I've seen in a very long time and the one that nailed me I fulley deserved as I hesitated and pulled back...I went down laughing though!!
The 7'8" Wild West Shooter shaped by Jools at Gulfstream Surfboards was such a great board for the conditions, especially as the line up was pretty crowded and this allowed me to get in early and snag a few lined up lefts...I do love a left but I had a couple of great rights too and the board was really great on the backhand too, really responsive to turns and either way it was fast!

Today was a good Day!

Today was one of those solo great days.

Loading my little old belingo with a bike and race kit, and my 7'8" Gulfstream Wild West Shooter  and with the sun shining headed up the road.

On the way up to race practice I took a slight detour and surfed some small but very clean waves at Gwithian Beach and that alone made me feel quietly satisfied. However, following this went to Cornwall BMX and put in about 2.5 hours of training and skills practice and this was great fun and felt like I made some more progress towards my first regional championship race at the end of March. On the way back, with the extra light now, I popped back into Gwithian again and paddled out to head high reeling lefts.  I took a few on the head but picked off a couple of beauties which always makes it worth it.

I am now on the sofa totally f..k'd!!

Today was a good day!

The book Slow is Fast featuring Dan Malloy is somewhat inspiring.....
