And as if by Magic.... Bing!
First up there will be about eight Bing boards to try at Saunton Sands. At 8.30am Trim Surfboards will be at Saunton with Bing and Matt for a chat and a slide and a taste of what they shape. And, amazingly, there is surf forecast!!! I'm looking forward to thanking Matt personally for the Dharma that he designed and that is my daily driver and a board that's given me soooo many fun rides. (Maybe even arm myself with a Posca and ask him and Bing to autograph it.) You should get down there too - maybe even get over excited and organise a custom order!
Then at midday there will be a book signing at NinePlus in Braunton. I don't think they had many books so get there early or bag your book first online! Burgers and refreshments too.
Saturday evening brings The Museum of British Surfing into the equation as they host Bing and Matt in Croyde Village Hall for a Q&A, raffle, live music from Matthew P and showing of the movie "Boardroom". I'm gonna win that Bing stick in the raffle for sure! If not I'll be grumpy for days...
And then on Sunday Pete and the Museum of British Surfing are hosting a Vintage Surf Meet in front of the Museum in Braunton from 11am to 3pm.
Whew! All this and then the European Fish Fry at Crackington Haven next weekend. Busy days :)
