Reason for selling is I have my eye on a MIJ Pro Series Jet and like to change my guitars fairly frequently in order to keep my playing fresh.
Based in Cornwall but work in Plymouth, Devon (England) – any demo inspection welcomed. Will consider posting if courier arranged and no Paypal due to experience with scammers  Was thinking of selling IRO £690

Stinkin’ Wetsuits

Written by stevenba. Posted in Leisure, SUP, surf

Like many surfing dads, I try to encourage my kids to share the stoke.

At the last count, this is how much neoprene I had strewn between my van, my garage and my carefully crafted wetsuit hanger in the garden:

  • 1 x Shortie wetsuit
  • 1 x Full length summer wetsuit
  • 2 x Winter steamers
  • 2 x kids full length summer suits
  • 1 x neoprene vest
  • 3 x rashies
  • 4 x pairs of kids wetsuit boots
  • 3 x pairs adults wetsuit shoes
  • 2 x pair adults wetsuit boots
  • 2 x pairs adults neoprene gloves
