Lets hold it up the coast

December 14, 2013


With just two weeks left in the year, the Woolacombe Boardriders Surf Club were running out of time to run their last contest of the year to choose their club champion. So it was, after a year of postponements, that a mahoosive swell and strong winds decided to batter the North Devon coast. There was […]

Winning and being the Best

May 14, 2012


It’s been a long time since the British Surfing Champion came from North Devon, since 1984 in fact when Richard Carter (Redwood surf shop, Croyde) held the crown. Last November Woolacombe resident, Stuart Campbell, brought the title back to Devon from a stormy Fistral Beach in Cornwall. To celebrate Stuey’s 21st birthday (today), his title […]

Tribute to Russ

November 11, 2011


Congratulations to Russell Winter who won three titles yesterday in one epic day of surfing at a thumping Fistral Beach, which was a strength-sapping and grinding 4 – 8 feet and classic conditions for the season deciding final event on the UK Pro Surf Tour. Russ won the final Relentless Energy Drink Super Series contest […]

Super Lynmouth Series

November 1, 2011


Reubyn Ash smashed his way to victory in the inaugural Relentless Lynmouth Super Series today with a mixture of old school grunt and new school cool. He combo’d Russell who sat on a 9.17 and a 8.60 in the final at Blacklands, which was perfect 3-4 foot, running and glassy, with a double alley-oop 9.77 […]

Three degrees tour 2011 UKPST daily updates

October 1, 2011


FINAL DAY and we were greeted by a maelstrom at Rest bay, but despite the very difficult conditions there was some excellent surfing, some drama and upsets and a fairytale win for Jayce Robinson, who finally made the breakthrough with a well deserved victory. Beth Mason kept her cool to do the job in the […]

In My Opinion

September 23, 2011


Getting amped for the UKProTour event at Lynmouth this autumn and cant wait to see Britain’s best surfers hacking into one of Britain’s best waves. The event will be run in one day and the UKPST has allotted three wildcards from the 32 man draw to the local surf clubs; Croyde, Woolacombe and Westward Ho! […]

Holga portraits at Quik Pro Junior

September 2, 2011


I am really enjoying using the ‘hit and miss’ Holga lens at the mo. The exposures are all over the shop, and the focus is agricultural – to say the least but, the massive vignetting and softness force you into a different mindset to get a result. The technique I have developed so far is […]

Holga Self

August 31, 2011


A profile picture is an essential item in these days of facewank, fantasy profile¬† and twitter. And whilst I have the lovely photo of my daughter and me taken by her, at arms length, on my much-neglected facebook page, my twitter pic, taken by the excellent photographer and friend Rob Tibbles for an interview in […]

Judge Not

July 30, 2011


One day all judging towers will be as good as this one. Erected at Downend by Croyde Surf Club for the Atlantic Watersports Games, this little beauty was spacious, remote and with a superb view of the action from low tide up to high. Not only was it practical success, it is a great place […]

New View

June 15, 2011


I was searching through some old files to find an appropriate pic to add to the GoldCoast Croyde Longboard Classic (presented by Frubob) Press Release and came across this shot of local lad Zak Lawton, taken in Marocco a couple of years ago. It ticked a couple of boxes, eg long board and Croyde connection […]
