Long time no ski…

So it’s been a wee while since the last post, summer has gone for sure and although it’s colder than the moon outside, we’re still keeping busy. Not only did the autumn/winter swell of 2014 throw up more than a handful of amazing days at local spots, some of us (Miss Bayliss to be precise) managed to sneak some mountain time in too!



Click on the picture of Charlotte to go to her blog and get as jealous as we are about her mountain escapades!

Worthy of a click too is her fun little December edit with other half Ben and her November post about hitting up what has to be my favourite ND surf spot. Most of us have kept relatively busy this winter so far but too few have managed to blog it so wonderfully as Charlotte!


Team Zinka UK!

A couple months back we received an email from a lovely young lady called Charlotte. She’s a surfer who’d recently been to costa rica and had discovered that Zinka was about the only sun block that actually worked in the water (quelle surprise right?). She wanted to know if we wanted to sponsor her. We checked her out and guess what…. She only bloody SLAYS it!

Naturally we said yeah, so now we send goodies to a cool young lass over in Jersey who happens to be current English Womens Longboard Champ and she very kindly spreads the word about us, gives us feed back on products and sends us pictures to make us chuckle.

First outta the tube

First post. What to say except hello and thanks for stopping by. We’re the Uk and Northern European distributor for Zinka, a Californian based suncare brand with over 25 years of surf and watersports heritage who specialise in zink based sunblocked in 12 colours. A little bit of that 80’s neon beach party vibe in a product that has stood the test of time and the waves of Southern California.

As for us? Just a couple of homies who run a surf shop in Somerset, land of cider and semi secret winter point breaks. We love Zinka, have used most of the products for some time now so it seemed kind of natural to take it on ourselves. We want to keep it simple too, trying to stay true to the brands surfing roots by avoiding the obvious routes of Boots the chemist or even Surf Dome.

We’ll use this page as a place to let peeps know about new products, our surf escapades, our team riders and any other super-relevant choice bits of media and info!

Cheers and Gone
