  • We've Got SLEDGES!!!

    The snow drift is rapidly approaching...if you haven't already had your first flakes they're def not far away! The weather man promised us 8 inches of the white stuff - and that means SNOW DAY!

    Are you ready?? We are - and we're not talking bags of salt and de-icer... we're talking SLEDGES! And this year we've got kids and adult size ones, so no more embarrasing 'local news broadcasts' with the guy squeezed onto a kitchen tray bombing down the hill, out of control! Lol

    We send em all out by courier too, so you get delivery within 1-2 working days (upgrade to next day if you just cant wait). They're only £11.99 and we reckon the most fun you can have for under 15 quid! Lol....

  • Pure Spirit / Ocean Sports Surf Team Triumph at Bournemouth Surf Comp

    On Saturday 20th November the Pure Spirit Surf School Groms, sponsored by Ocean Sports Board Riders and O’Neill Wetsuits, travelled down to Bournemouth to the first of a series of inter-club competitions between Brighton, Bournemouth and the Witterings.

    "We left at 7:30am on a grey morning and arrived to a 2-3ft easterly swell which was very contestable, but a dumping shore break made it very challenging for the younger kids."

    Our team consisted of:
     
    Finn Lightbown (8 years old)
    Harrison Chambers (10 years old)
    Max Spicer (10 years old)
    Patrick Nolan (14 years old)
    Annie Warner (14 years old)
    Josh Munroe (12 years old)
    Kieran Munroe (14 years old)
    Cameron Munroe (16 years old)


     
    "Heats took to the water immediately with about 40 kids entering. It was non-stop action - heats were run at the same time on both sides of Boscombe Pier. It was a great sight to see the kids in the contest vests all having fun, for some it was the first comp they had entered to, with proud parents looking on."

    "After a long cold day for all, the results were tabulated and after great performances by Cam and the Munroe brothers, Cam won the under 17's and Annie won for the girls! Patrick Nolan also performed well and in all the Pure Spirit Ocean Sports Brighton team triumphed!"

    Results:
     
    1st Brighton
    2nd Bournemouth
    3rd Witterings
     

    Special thanks to Bournemouth for a great event, Cliff for your tireless support and encouragement for the groms. A big shout out to the two Shaun’s, all the judges, Gary Knights and all at O’Neill Wetsuits.

    Well done guys.

  • Kelly Slater Makes History Winning His 10th ASP World Title

    A massive congratulations to Quiksilver's Kelly Slater on winning his 10th (yes 10th!) ASP World Championship title in Puerto Rico on 6th November 2010. His ASP World Title accomplishments span two decades and make surf legend Slater both the youngest and oldest ASP World Champions!

    Slater scored an incredible 18.77 out of a possible 20 in the Final - even managing to score a Perfect 10!

    Kelly says: "I feel relieved honestly - it's been the most stressful title I've ever had, because it's sort of an unknown place and you know at my age people say 'you shouldn't be doing this.' And all the young guys are getting better and it's a challenge to believe in yourself and not believe what other people tell you. I know how good Jordy, Dane, Mick, Taj and all those guys are, and it's a marathon, you know? It's not one wave, it's not one maneuver, it's not one contest. It's a year-long thing and I know how to focus and it came together and I'm just so relieved."

    Slater won his previous ASP titles in 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2005, 2006 and 2008. Other achievements also include 45 WCT wins and 2 ESPN X Games gold medals. Now 2010 marks this 10th ASP World Title victory - remember the date guys, this will go down in surfing history! Congrats Kelly!

  • Andy Irons Passes Away

    The surfing world mourns today as sad news broke that 3 times ASP World Champion Andy Irons has passed away. The 32 year old surf legend is reported to have been battling the viral disease dengue fever - which had earlier caused him to withdraw from a pro surfing event in Puerto Rico. Reports state that Andy was found in a Dallas hotel room, where he was staying en-route to his home in Hawaii.

    Andy leaves behind his family, including his 8 month pregnant wife, and a legion of friends and fans.

    Andy Irons took the surfing world by storm, winning the World Championship in 2002, 2003 and 2004, Quiksilver Pro France championship in 2003, 2004 and 2005 and also took the Rip Curl Pro Search title in 2006 and 2007. Famed also for his long term rivalry with Kelly Slater, his role in surfing movies such as Blue Horizon and his fellow surfer brother Bruce Irons.

    Our thoughts and condolences go out to the Irons family at this sad time.

    RIP Andy Irons 1978 - 2010
