Yvon Chouinard Interview

August 28th, 2015

Yvon Chouinard - Funder of Patagonia - interviewIf you’ve got a few minutes to spare, click the link below and check the interview Surfline has recently done with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard as part of their “Influencers” series. It’s a good opportunity to meet the man who created Patagonia with the vision to make quality functional products, and how he takes big steps to give back to the planet. If only all clothing companies took a leaf out of Yvon’s book, the world would be a much nicer place… and we’d all look and feel a lot better as well :)

New V.Bowls Coming Soon!

August 12th, 2015

Ryan Lovelace Surfboards Banner

Ryan Lovelace has been busy in his Californian shaping bay making us some spanking new V.Bowls which are literally due to leave the States any day now.  If you were lucky enough to grab yourself one the last time we had some in, or if you’ve taken your friend’s V.Bowls for a surf when they weren’t looking, then you know how good these boards are!  Every one of them hand shaped by the man himself, and riding one is like you’re slipping away into a buttery, slidey, groovy, dreamy fantasy… or something like that anyway.

Ryan paid us a visit last year in Cornwall and made us some boards, and he is with undoubtedly one of the nicest and coolest cats in the business. With a keen eye for detail, and a real mind on clean work ethics, Ryan is one of the few true soul shapers out there.

Come inside his shaping bay and meet him for yourself:-

We only have 5 new V.Bowls arriving… a 6’8″, 6’10” 2 x 7’6″ and a 7’10”..  I couldn’t tell you what colour each one is, but I do know that there is red, blue, forest green, yellow and volan all in there between them. Here’s a look at a few of the V.Bowls we have had in the shop before

If you want any more info, or are interested in saving one of these for yourself, then give us a call on 01736 757025 anytime between 9:30 and 5:30 BST, or drop us an email to info@downthelinesurf.co.uk

Well, here’s some good news!  Bob McTavish is coming to Europe in August to hand-shape some boards for us. He will be staying in Spain Basque Country and shaping boards out of the Pukas factory. We are taking custom orders right now for any McTavish model you like.

The Fisherman’s Son – Film and Book Tour

June 16th, 2015

Fisherman's Son - Ramon Navarro

You all may be aware of the latest film and book project by Chris Malloy called The Fisherman’s Son, featuring Ramon Navarro; one of the premier Chilean surfers and environmentalists who is working within the community to protect the coastline of Punta De Lobos. Well, you are invited to a very special night on 1st July at 7 Foundry Lane, Hayle, Cornwall TR27 4HD, to a showing of this great film about a very remarkable man, and the perfect opportunity to meet the man himself

The event starts at 8pm and costs only £5 donation (£3 for children).

All proceeds will be split between our chosen local NGO Save Our Sand, St. Ives Bay http://www.sos-hayle.org.uk/  and the Save our Waves Coalition www.lobosporsiempre.org. Even if you can’t attend, every penny you donate to the #lobosporsiempre will be match funded up to the value of $100,000 by Patagonia!

There will be food available throughout the evening, and when the films stops the music will start! The utterly brilliant Sandy Acre Seven will be there and playing hits so fine you’ll be shaking your thing before you know what’s even happened to you.

Here’s a little clip of the film, just to wet your whistle.

If you need any other info, simply drop us a line on 01736 757025.

See you there!
