Surf Hire in Newquay

Price: - -

Surfer’s Paradise. Surf shop and hire in Newquay.

I really would recommend this place if you’re planning to hire surf stuff in Newquay. I was always looking out at prices of other places, and you won’t get ripped off here; I got a pretty good deal. It was £10 a day for my Mini Mal, or any other custom board and £5 a day for the wetsuit. It was £5 a day for beginner’s boards. But as I was having it for 3 days I was charged £37; though I’m not sure what exactly the discount was, or whether they just made a mistake!

I was pleased because I was actually given a women’s wetsuit, not a unisex one, which, as all ladies know, really means it will fit men and we just have to put up with it. It fitted well and was quite flattering – as wetsuits go anyway.

The shop was well equipped for all your surfing needs, and the staff were surfers and knew what they were talking about. Also a surfing video to watch while you’re queueing!

The only down side to many people is that you find it at 64 Tower Road, Newquay. Right between Fistral and Towan beaches, but if I’d had to carry the board to either one, I’d be knackered when I got there. And it would be worse for the big beginner’s boards. There are parking spaces in front of the shop though, so perfect if you have a surf rack, or a campervan like me!

Health, UK,

The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them review (no spoilers)
November 20, 2016
This is just a quick extra post because I went to watch this film last night and thought it was absolutely fantastic! As Harry Potter fans, we were very excited in this household and the kids and I dressed up for the occasion in 1920’s style outfits! We ate a meal first at the Frankie & Benny’s opposite the Cineworld cinema in Yeovil (which, by the way is hugely improved from last time we went there – I think they’ve employed new kitchen staff) and sneaked pudding, in the form of chocolate buttons, in my bag into Screen eight!….
A day in out in Bath during Fashion Week
May 4, 2016
I don’t need much persuading to go to Bath – it’s a beautiful city and considering how close we are, I really should go more often. It’s the annoyingly slow and windy drive that puts me off I think. Anyway, considering clothing is one of my favourite things, I thought I’d go during Bath in Fashion Week. I chose one paid-for event, which was the talk with Livia Firth on sustainable fashion, and was pleased to see on the website that there were plenty of free things going on that day as well….
Is it time to start making an effort?
November 23, 2016
Fashion and Beauty are terms that generally go hand in hand, particularly when describing the genre for some bloggers. However, whilst I am always interested in what’s on the catwalk, I can’t honestly say I’m all that bothered about ‘beauty’. I like looking at the craftsmanship of couture clothing, but I’m not rushing out to buy the latest eyeshadow primer. I suppose my interest has increased in the last six months or so when I’ve started blogging and making You Tube videos and my image is out there a bit more; and it got me thinking about how I’ve thought about beauty products over the years and how it’s changed…..
