    Three on Thursday – Red Hot Chili Peppers

      This is a feature i’m going to try and weekly, on well, a Thursday. I’m going to pick a band or artist and choose my top three songs by them at that moment in time. Why? I’m not really sure. But I do love listening to music and those cringey top 5 band/film/song questions people ask on dates.

    How to wax a surfboard…

    Thought i’d do a quick post with my technique. Get a wax comb and clean all that used, old wax off your board. Lay down a good layer of basecoat wax. This layer is a harder more durable layer which will stay with the board until you next completely rewax it. You need something hard like a warm water wax for a base.
