BOWMONT - THE SPINNERS
HIS WAY ON THE HIGHWAY
Proprietor of Strong Adolfos, maker of boards and customiser of bikes under emerging brand cmbl; John Eldridge is shaping his world around him. We head up the Atlantic Highway and spend the day searching for a wave and smelling the coffee.
Returning from Ireland and en route to Madeira we intercepted Matt whilst visiting his hometown for a reminiscent hit on the boiler side of Porthmeor.
We enter the pirates playground, experience big water where ships were sunk and heavy drops are taken.
WAY OUT WEST
Tight crew, good charts, the tent and new product to shoot we headed as south west as we could. We Bunkered down and waited for the waves to arrive.
EARLY MORING MEETING
Before work with tales of a solitary surf, riding a 7ft gun at an unknown point till dark, we set off with Skelly to see if the swell was still around.
Switching up the working environment, reflecting on the past year and stoking the fire that started it all; we grabbed some new product to test and headed up to the north of Scotland.
A MOTHERS POLPERRO
We first spotted Simon Skelton across a room, effortlessly sporting a Polperro jumper knitted - in the timeless tradition - by his Mother. This was confirmation of an idea we had been banding around the workshop for sometime so we put the Cornish villages knit pattern into production.
