  • Hollingdean Skate Comp - well done Marley!

    The Hollingdean Skate Jam & Volley competition was a big success this week. Big congrats to our junior ripper, 6 year old Marley, who got third place. We're really stoked for him - especially considering the 1st and 2nd places went to skaters 5 years older than him!

    Check out the Pics:

    We donated prizes and so did the guys at Shiner and Death Skateboards so big thanks to them. The Hollingdean locals are counting the days 'til work starts on their new park – we've seen the plans and it looks like its gonna be great. Good to see yet another concrete park going in…!

  • Skate Jam & Volley - 14th April

    On Thursday 14th April we'll be down at Hollingdean Park for the Skate Jam & Volley event - come see us, all ages welcome! We're sponsoring the skate comp and there's loads of prizes on offer... The event is on 1pm to 4pm - hope to see you there :-)

  • Brighton marathon runners...look for us when you hit 'The Wall'

    There's an extra buzz around town at the moment in the run up (pardon the pun) to the Brighton Marathon this weekend - good luck to everyone taking part. Our retail shop Ocean Sports are sponsoring 'The Wall' to raise money for the Kenya Project, set up by City College, Brighton.

    'The Wall' is basically a giant wall, based on the concept that most runners hit 'a wall' around 20 miles into a marathon run. Bigger than a double decker bus 'The Wall' is being built by City College's Carpentry Department using around 300 metres of timber and 20 litres of paint! Check out last years footage below - pretty impressive!

    YouTube Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Y4-IjmBpDk

    Of course 'The Wall' is in part to motivate runners and spur them on toward the finish line, while spectators cheer them on from the sidelines, but it's also to raise money for a very worthy cause set up by students and staff at City College, Brighton - the Kenya Project. Last year 23 students and staff flew to one of the poorest areas of Kenya to help build homes and basic infrastructure - making a real difference to the lives of the local community. The Carpentry Department are set to head back out to Nakuru, Kenya this year and we we're more than happy to get on board, sponsoring 'The Wall'.

    So if you're in the area or taking part in the Brighton Marathon yourself, look out for the Ocean Sports sign when you hit 'The Wall'. Good luck to all runners this Sunday - listen out for us cheering you on too :-)

     

  • Did you spot our April Fools??

    So...did you see anything strange on our site today??? We thought we'd have a little April Fools Day fun and ran a cheeky little comp on Facebook to get you all joining in too. We hid 5 random products around the site, modelled by animals - ok so it was a poor Photoshop effort, but it got us chuckling!

    First to find each product and post it up on our Facebook won a prize... and the winners were:

    Owen Sparkes who found an elephant hiding in these O

    'Neill shorts

     

    David Thompson - who found the dog in the mens Carhartt tee

    Farah Bakir - first to find the donkey in the Rip Curl wetsuit

    Josh Molina-Blackburn who found this giraffe hiding in a ladies dress

    And last but not least......Jonathan Cosson who found the croc lurking in a kayak!

     

    Well done to all the guys that won and thaks to everyone who took part. It kept us amused for the morning and from the sound of it, most of you had fun too...sorry to all your bosses for distracting you from work on a Friday morning! He he.
