If 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 🙂
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
