If you have not heard of this little-known secret, take a look at the map.

Simon, congratulations on winning our “email sign-up to win a free South Coast Surfboard” contest!

How did you hear about our contest?

I was poking around some boards in your Bacon Street shop and got chatting to Kevin who was real helpful. I can’t really remember filling out the form at the counter, but I’m glad I did.  I never win anything apart from the time I guessed the number of marshmallows in the jar which I got – bang on…256! Yeah, I was sick for days.

So, I understand you are not in the country right now, where are you?

I’m in New Zealand… it’s made up of a couple of islands so there’s always surf and its always offshore somewhere. Great place for exploring and you can’t get more than 100 miles from the coast if you try. This time of year you can snowboard in the morning and surf in the afternoon, although the water gets a bit chill. Awesome, except I can’t pick up my board till I get back!

What style of board do you typically ride?

I’ve got a 6’0 fish I bought in Brazil, a 6’3 6 channel Byrne Surftech, which is unreal for down the line waves and all the speed you need, an old original Byrne 6’3 6 channel, which was made in Oz about 20 years ago. It’s such a fun board to ride and it’s like going back in history each time I dig it out. I also have a 6’6 rounded pin for larger hollow waves. Oh, and a 1976 longboard which I can hardly lift which I leave for those small summer days when there’s not much else to do.

What style of South Coast board do you think you will order?

How many am I allowed again? Just one? I’ve actually been looking at getting a smaller board for those to 2-3 ft summer days where I get out of bed late and the wind has junked up the waves but still go for a surf, something in the 5’10 range and also quite like the idea of a quad. What would you recommend??

Thanks again South Coast!!
