Chris Janes Art Exhibition

Popped along this afternoon to see Chris's exhibition of his art work (you may recall from my previous entry).

He has been quite the dark horse!

It was a lovely display of work that he has done in oil, charcoal and paint on driftwood - inspired of course by the lovely surroundings of the Gwithian Towans, where he and his family live.

I picked myself up a terrific little framed charcoal sketch of the towan chalets.

I already have a space in mind for it in my little office nook, where it will be like a little window that I can gaze out of when I am busy tapping away the hours.

A big congrats again guys on it being such a success. I look forward to the next one.

Surf Fayre

Summer has made a return just in time for the holiday season.

What could be better than spending the day down at the beach and taking in some good food and music? Add to that the opportunity to get together with some of the finest surfboard shapers in the south west and see their latest designs and models and you know it's going to be a great day.

Unfortunately we won't be available on the day to showcase any of our own boards, but our good friend & fellow shaper Rich 'Butch' Hawkins will be there with a display of his work so pop by & have a yarn.

Rich, is the talent behind Hawkins Surfboards down in Sennen and has generously donated his time and shaped up an awesome little board which will be raffled off on the day to one lucky winner.

It's going to be a great day so go along and show your support to Russ and the guys for all the hard work they have put in to planning and organizing and making the stars align.

Proceeds in aid of charity Surf Action. More information about the good work that they do supporting combat veterans check out the website Surf Action
