The story of Passenger Clothing   These days the term ‘surf brand’ covers everything from sponsored lip gloss to supermarket own-label clothing. The core few surfing companies we grew up with have inflated astronomically and are now less surf brands as any-sport-not-involving-a-ball brands. So it’s no wonder smaller independent companies are cropping up with simpler values and a more down-to-earth take on beach life. Passenger Clothing is one such company. Openly not a surf brand, Passenger describes itself as a surf lifestyle label. This isn’t splitting hairs, there’s a marked difference. In the old days surf brands were all about...

    When I was introduced to surfing I was told it’s better than sex. Having never surfed before I thought the guy telling me this was a total madman. But after a few sessions borrowing his spare board and wettie, I was hooked.   Six years later I'm still a surf junkie, writing about why surfing is, in fact (100% fact, possibly, maybe), better than sex. I suppose when he reads this he'll be saying, “I told you so!”     1. Surfing lasts longer   Research shows the average male lasts 14 minutes. How long do you usually surf for?...

  In just two weeks this summer, South West Water has released untreated sewage into the sea at Godrevy. The obviously devastating effect on the beaches, businesses, holidaymakers and surf is too much to ignore. So this Saturday 26th July at 2pm Surfers Against Sewage will be holding a peaceful protest calling for South West Water to stop unnecessary raw sewage discharge into the sea. If you can make it along, great. If not you can still sign the petition and help keep our beaches clean and safe. And be sure to spread the word. For more about the issue and...

Curren, Lopez, Occy. Everybody knows these names and the timeless style associated with them. Be it a masterful ride at J Bay, a bottom turn at Pipe that will never go out of fashion or a world-renowned back-hand, they are household names for a good reason. So how about some younger surfers? Did the style in surfing go out with the flares and tie-dye at the end of the seventies, or can surfers still improve on the greats of the previous generations? I think that style is very much an opinion, so my list is probably completely different to what yours...

  A few hours ago I posted our ‘Photo of the Day’. I was a bit tricksy. I don’t know who took it, which is why it isn’t credited. But I knew people would share it. Because it was of a guy about to get nailed by a huge wave. And they did share it. In fact it’s one of the most shared photos we’ve ever posted. Because it’s of a guy about to get nailed. Because it’s of all of us. Take a look and tell me you’re not picturing yourself in his position. Wondering if you’d survive the wipeout....
