Missing the club fields right now, and this was soul smoothing stuff to watch. I'm always trying to explain how hard the NZ kids shred whether it's hard pack or Ja-pow, but right now I'm gonna let Ollie Hunts season do the talking. I used to coach this kid, now I'm proud to call him my Surfanic clothing teamate, recognize the jacket?
We Are Surfanic!
Join the Fun
Surfanic are excited to announce the latest brand to hit our website and selected stores, welcome... Neff. This California based sunglasses and accessories brand was launched by Shaun and Joe Neff in 2002. Neff is an active youth accessory brand specialising in core snow and skate headwear and is supported by some of the biggest action sports athletes in the world.
Neff is committed to having fun and bringing new vibes to the world, evident from this quote from co-founder Shaun Neff -
“We are like a gumball machine; spitting out endless flavors for the world to consume."
Not only have Neff collaborated with massive celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Deadmau5 and Scarlett Johansson, but they also organise a yearly charity initiative "Neff Hope" to raise awareness and funds to support cancer research.
I think it's time to introduce you to one of Surfanic's bestsellers... The Roller Bag.
Made from the same fabrics as our ski jackets, these roller bags are durable with a waterproof coating and are surprisingly light weight. In fact, our 107 litre roller bags weigh in at just 3kg! Perfect for dealing with those pesky airport weight restrictions. It's simple, cut back on the weight of the suitcase and you can pack more shoes!
Each 107l roller bag has a fully retractable handle which can be locked at two different heights and 4-way compression straps so that you can adjust the depth of your luggage.
My personal favourite feature is the 'Split Level Construction' which basically means that the roller bag is divided in to two halves with separate zip compartments. Making it much easier to organise your clothes, whether it's his and hers, damp and dry, evening and day, whatever takes your fancy. Not to mention how much time it saves when you're looking for something in a hurry.
This year, for the first time, Surfanic have introduced a mini roller bag, the 40 litre Kyber Carry On! This sleek and compact bag has been specially designed to meet the size restrictions of aeroplane carry ons (20x40x50cm) even budget airlines! It is a perfect size for a weekend away and the front travel document pocket and integrated laptop sleeve make it ideal for business trips.
Our full range of roller bags have hard-wearing poly-urethane wheels and both side and top grab handles, a feature that really comes in handy when collecting your luggage off the airport conveyor belts.
Whether you're jetting off on a two week luxury beach holiday to Barbados (some people have all the luck) or travelling by train for a business trip to London, Surfanic have a roller bag suitable for your needs, and available in a range of designs to suit your tastes. Also did I mention that all Surfanic roller bags are now half price? No? Well just see for yourself - link. But I'd be quick as they are flying off the shelves (Hehe geddit? Flying...sorry I couln't help myself).
I don't think I have ever met someone who would say "£20,000? No thank you I'm fine." That would be crazy.
Xscape in Milton Keynes are giving their customers the chance to win an amazing £20,000 which is currently locked up in a giant safe at the entertainment complex, which houses an indoor ski slope, bars, restaurants, a gym, a cinema, plenty of shops and even a body flying tunnel!
All you have to do is make a purchase at any of the on-site stores between the 2nd and 27th June and visit the safe to guess the code. If you guess correctly, the £20,000 is yours! There is nothing to lose and a hell of a lot to win!
So, if you're a regular shopper at our Milton Keynes Surfanic branch, make sure you stop by the safe. You have to be in it to win it as they say....

Last weekend saw the arrival of the English Slopestyle Championships 2014 at Chill Factore in Manchester, and some awesome performances from Surfanic sponsored team riders Thea Fenwick, Sam Annis, Tom Annis and Callum Wareing!
The unstoppable Thea Fenwick stole the gold at the under 14s and came 4th overall! And big congratulations to Sam Annis for taking home a bronze medal in the under 12s and to Tom Annis for coming in 5th!
Check out these photos from the day...

Unless you have been living under a rock, I am sure you will have noticed that the World Cup has finally arrived. We at Surfanic just couldn't wait to show our enthusiasm and support. Check out the very subtle flag now adorning the roof of our Head Office! It's near impossible to miss, and I'm sure it will be a nice welcome home reminder for those returning from their holidays and landing at London Southend Airport down the road.
We may not have won our first game but our hopes are still sky-high!
The story behind the brand Saltrock is incredibly inspiring. Two brothers from South Africa travelling and surfing around the world arrived in the UK back in the eighties. Falling in love with the surf and atmosphere of Cornwall they eventually started a business print-screening their own designs on to tshirts and selling them out the back of their car. Their distinctive and original designs were an instant hit with the local surfing community and business began to flourish.
Moving on to Devon, the brand only became more succesful. These days Saltrock are known both nationally and internationally as the Devon based surf brand that has inspired passionate loyalty from surfers all over the world. Expanding from their original stock of tshirts, Saltrock now design and sell a huge range of hoodies, shorts, shirts, backpacks, phone cases, mugs and even skateboards!
We at Surfanic, are extremely excited to have teamed up with such an extraordinary brand and Saltrock stock is now available to buy in all our stores and online! Catering for men, women and children there really is something for everyone.
She's really cute and funny, he's smart and handsome...but you just don't have anything in common. Sound familiar? We know that in some cases opposites attract but it really does help to have some shared interests with your 'better half.'
Well Snow Factor at Soar Intu in Braehead is trying to solve that very problem with their new Singles Night based at their indoor snow slope. Every Wednesday evening until 25th June 2014, they are hosting their 'Discover Snow Sports' event for singles. With guidance from an expert ski instructor, a slope pass and equipment hire included, it's the perfect chance to learn how to ski or snowboard and meet some interesting new people.
Who knows you might just meet Mr/Mrs Right and by the time the new ski season starts you could be flying off on a romantic getaway in the mountains. And if not, at least you've got yourself a fun new hobby (one of the best hobbies in the world might I add! Although we may be a bit biased about that).
Snow Factor is even recommended as one of the top dating destinations by eHarmony!
So if you live in the Glasgow area and you're bored of trying to pick up people in your local pub, pop along on a Wednesday evening to Soar. For only £30pp it's a real bargain too!
