Hello All

We’re back yet again with the 5th installment of the Vansurf saga. This year we’ve gone for a name change to Surf & Rock with the intention of welcoming anyone and everyone. Vans are not necessary!

Apologies to all for the late notice, we’ve been a bit busy this year with various projects and stuff but we’ve decided again to organise and host another gathering.

Yet again we’ll be at Black Rock Sands in North Wales. Dates are 4th through to the 7th October. We plan to be there from about 12ish on the Thursday to set up the event tent and generally get ourselves sorted. After that it’s all about what conditions we hope to get.

Over the last couple of years we’ve been met with some awesome North Westerlies on the Friday. We’ve been over to a personal favourite of a spot called Nefyn and been greeted by fantastic wave conditions. We’ve got most wind directions covered in the region, we just need the wind. If they don’t show we’ve started to branch out a bit, There will be a crowd heading off with the Mountain Bikes. There are a number of great mountain biking spots in the area, or there’s a cable tow or I may even head out on the sea kayak. If it’s fun bring it along! Evenings are all about a giggle over a few beers and a BBQ.

We ask people to book themselves into the campsite with Wendy.

What do you mean you wont have it? Highlight of the year for me looking at you on the beach waving for me to come in.

The mankini was year before last, those guys should be back.

Be interesting to see what OR have done with the Razors.
Don’t worry Richard I’ll make sure your girlfriend is there, but for safety reasons Flossy will need to be kept in her cage. Just make sure you’ve got room in your van, she’ll be your responsibility. I’ve sharpened her hoofs ready for you.

Just a quick update
I haven’t upset Richard (Sunrise) by all accounts after phoning him at 8pm which was, apparently way past his bed time. Richard will be joining us again and he’s bringing a selection of new toys. He has a Prodigy and a couple of new Razors for all to try.

Cheers for the support again Mr Sunrise and I’ll make sure the sun is in the sky when I call again.
