Flying Like an Eagle
One of my mates Phil, lucky sod, is in the middle of a 3 month trip snowboarding in France travelling in his homemade camper van while I'm slaving over a hot website. Not hot in the illegal sense of course! He sends me regular updates on his progress and disasters a snippet of which I intend to bore you with now.
On the 1st February he was at Courchevel Le Prazthere and he heard that there was going to be a cancer research fundraising event at a small satellite resort which was just down the road. When he went down to investigate he discovered it was going to be the Unofficial British Ski Jumping Championships, organised and participated in by none other than our National Treasure and super hero, Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards. In my humble opinion he embodies everything that is good about our indomitable "British Bulldog Spirit", something we are in grave danger, as a nation, of losing because of culture destruction. The man is a true legend. He competed in the 1988 winter Olympics in Calgary and he wasn’t young then, so according to my mate Phil, seeing him throw himself off a 90metre "tremplin" was an event not to be missed. Here's a photo of Eddie at the Championships on the 1st February:
I've asked Phil to email me some action photos of Eddie from the completion which I will be sharing with you in a latter blog.
Whilst Phil has been away I have done a revamp on the british surfing company website and created an exciting new look. There are some more changes afoot which I will tell you about in a later blog.
