Seasick Steve (GoldCoast)

16th 17th 18th June 2011

For those of you who are not yet aware, Seasick Steve will be headlining GoldCoast this year! The man is a genius at playing his homemade instruments including a Morris Minor Guitar, A One Stringed Diddley Bow and a Mississippi Drum Machine. Many people enjoyed his interview on Top Gear a while ago but can still be seen on Dave every now and then.

Tickets for weekend entry are £25.00 if you buy online and if you ask me thats well worth it just to see him perform!

He will be headlining the Saturday Night. (18th June 2011)

25 other acts will also perform over the weekend both local and International.

Naturally we, The Little Pink Shop will be open the entire weekend for all your surfing needs! Be it Hire, a replacement leash, a warmer wetsuit or advice about the surrounding beach breaks. Feel free to pop in for a chat or to listen to our extensive Soca and Reggae CD's ;) (Courtesy of Steve) It's going to be a fab weekend! Let's hope the surf is good too!!!

New 2011 Model using Clear Epoxy... looks as beautiful as a traditional glassfibre board but with the added strength of Epoxy.

05/03/11 surf pix (or lack of)

The camera is broken so a just got 2 pictures this morning. To be honest I didn't have any surf to photograph anyway :(

Try Croyde on the pushing tide. It might just make it to a rideable size. Our fingers are crossed!

Still, on the bright side, The sun is out again and croyde is nice and quite for the time being.

Check back soon for updates.

Gold coast surf museum.

Taking pictures was forbidden so uhhh... This is all in your imagination!

All new Cortez for 2011

Believe it or not, this board is actually made from Epoxy! You could be holding this board in your very hands and you would swear it were fibreglass!

So now for the first time ever, you have a board with a fibreglass appearance, but with the durability of a strong epoxy!

The board pictured here is only one of many designs. All wooden effect! We have Bamboo, Mahogany, Pine and golden pine. Each one as pleasing to the eye as the next.

These board will be available to buy from in the next few hours. I will post a link straight to it as soon as it's up!

Thanks for reading. Feel free to comment.

Surf update 03/03/11

It's only our second surf update and we are already receiving a positive response! Today the sun is shining again and the surf, though small, is clean and beautiful! Saunton is hosting the perfect long boarders wave whilst Croyde is just big enough on sets for a shorter board. 

The Pink Shop will be open this weekend for all your surf hire needs. Hopefully the sun will still be shining. :)

Check back soon for our next update
