Totally awesome weekend – the BUCS comp ran for 3 days at Fistral. We were totally stoked to meet so many people at our POP-UP Tent. So just wanted to say thanks for hanging at our POP-Up and hope you liked the boards.
The BUCS is the worlds biggest surf contest and is impervious to the wind, rain, totally gnarly conditions and some epic hangovers. Most people travelled big distances to be here. What can we say – we're feeling sort of emotional really – our little company is about For The Crew – getting the right gear – boards that work for us and boards that work for the Crew. Felt like a big affirmation of what we are about. Can you imagine how good it felt that Rhys won the mens individual on a Clayton Dredger! (and a big shout out to him for a gutsy final heat and that awesome right – he worked super hard for that – well impressed). But just as impressed by the other 400+ competitors plus everybody who came along to to have such a lot of fun in such difficult conditions.
We even had lots of entries into our strangely titled #ALLABOUTYEW competition (it had seemed a good title over a few beers the night before!) – but yep the competition is up and running. YEW! Keep them coming – there’s prizes!
We had such a good time that we’ve decided to offer some big discounts for Students on our boards and fins. Just sign up for the CREW at the bottom of the page and we’ll send you details of the discounts and a code so you can get some good gear at a ridiculous price. (and we promise not to spam you to distraction – because we don’t like spam so why would you?)
Oh – and we had a few boards dinged by the wind – just cosmetic – so we’re selling them off cheap as soon as I unpack them – check out our INSTANT HAPPINESS page in the next day or so for some amazing wind-dinged bargains– we’ll box them up and send them over in 3 working days.
