Surf Hire

4¡West Surfboards Funday - Spray 5 - 7'2'' - PACKAGE DEAL

by 4 West Surfboards [4¡West Surfboards]
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,

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
Afternoon tea in Bath
Afternoon Tea with Mr Darcy at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Somerset
September 21, 2018
We asked what Jude would like to do for her Twentieth birthday (yes, you did hear me correctly: twentieth birthday) and she asked to go out for afternoon tea. I’ll be honest, when I agreed, I was thinking more like at a National Trust cafe, but Jude had in mind the full afternoon tea experience. Apart from on a cruise, I’ve never done this, (it’s the sort of thing I’ll do when I grow up) so was looking forward to experiencing the proper deal….
A review of Comb Beck, a holiday cottage near Keswick in the Lake District; let by Sally’s Cottages
March 29, 2017
A little weekend break was planned as a surprise by Chris, but he knows how I like planning things, so he did actually tell me about it in advance and I helped find somewhere to stay. Sally’s Cottages seems to be the go-to agency if you’d like to book a holiday cottage in the Lake District and I was impressed with their easy-to-use website with plenty of options to tick included whether there’s wifi and if dogs are allowed – our major requirements. I liked the look of Comb Beck, along with its location, so we went ahead and booked it….
