The Micah Exposé

Wavelength magazine, established in ’81, the most read surf magazine in the UK and self promoted “future of British surfing” released its 192nd issue in June. And to celebrate they gained an exclusive interview from Micah Lester.

We thought the interview was great, so great in fact we have deconstructed it into small readable sections that may be slightly out of context, here it is, well the best quotes:

Micah LesterThe Anglo-Aussie and the dark cloud that follows him”:

“I have been shafted so many times…”

Shafted!

“I ended up having to live in my van, which broke down in front of Constantine Surf Store… the store gave me a job for the summer… it destroyed everything… it was the worst year of my life.”

Giving "pulling my hair out" a new meaning!

Although Micah may have had a slightly raw deal at the hands of the British surf industry, it still doesn’t take away from the fact that the guy sheds very, very hard. Now Micah is walking again after the bad ankle saga, we wish him the very best, and hope he starts to rip!

Board of the Week Vol. 2

This week its the turn of the Hot Buttered “Slam Fish”. Brand new for Constantine Bay Surf Store, this fish is all you need for a summer of small waves and lazy days.

Hot Hot Hot Buttered

The  Slam Fish is part of  legendary surfer/shaper Terry Fitzgerald’s performance board range for 2010. Aesthetically the board catches the eye, this 6’2 fish has a beautiful green spray.

Board of the Week

6’2 * 20 1/2″ * 2 1/2″ means that this board can not only handle in surf with a bit of size but also take advantage of any grovel conditions that the British summer has been known to throw at us.

MR-TFX Fins

To make this board excel in small surf we recommend a fin trade, and grab some FCS MR TFX. These will “loosen” up the general feel of the board giving it a tradition fishy slide.

So if you need a small wave shred sled you cannot go wrong with this amazing board and for the price £299 you be a crazy fool to miss out!

The Yellow Hot Rod

In a blaze of glorious revs and oil the little yellow hot rod pulled up outside the shop. Owner “Randal” hopped out, happy to be driving around on yet another beautiful day at Constantine Bay. The hot rod was brand new, just finished with hand made everything… gear stick, dashboard, body you name it “Randal” custom made it. “Its only basic” he admitted, but it still didn’t stop the shop crew (Des, Dom and Mollie) jumping in and having a bit of go!

If you’re interested in one of these great “Creeky Classic” machines you can contact Randal himself to inquire:
