Lusty Glaze surf meet June 2018

A great turnout on Sunday, not dismayed by the drizzly weather. Nice to see old and new faces, and the boards as ever were stunning. The Newquay surf meet seems to be growing steadily year on year so long may it continue ! Comments people have left about it were that the vibe was relaxed and very friendly, the variety of boards surprisingly large, and some great deals done and new boards bought. Thanks to Lusty Glaze for hosting us again this year. Next surf meet will be at the Museum of British Surfing, Braunton in September. Thanks to Alex Williams for most of the photos.

Sptember surf meet at Museum of British Surfing

 It was another successful surf meet at MOBS on the 25 september. Perfect weather and lots of people turned up with a stunning array of boards, and the museum was open to look round too. There was a film night the night before which went down very well, with Alex Williams narrating some recently unearthed 1970s surf films by Bez Newton !
