Last week I recounted how my mate Phil, was in the middle of a 3 month trip snowboarding in France (taking a rest from surfing) travelling in his homemade camper van and how he was lucky enough to stumble upon the Unofficial British Ski Jumping Championships on the 1st February organised and participated in by our super hero, Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards. I promised to post some more photos of the event, featuring Eddie, as soon as Phil emailed them to me and here they are:

I expect that you have all been hearing ad nauseam about the EU referendum. Over the next few months we will all be fed the usual half truth and downright lies about what is good for us, the wage-slave majority, like the rich tax dodgers have always done. What they won’t tell us is what is really good for the Tories and their super-rich mates of course. Another aspect which will probably be overlooked is the effect that leaving the EU will have on our freedom to travel in Europe. As surfers and snowboarders we have all be used to decades of chucking the surfboards or snowboards in the van and heading for the continent and, if we need to, getting work or receiving health care when we break a leg. It’s not only surfing that will be affected if we leave the EU, it will be the good old British cheap continental holiday. That of course will not affect our millionaire and billionaire Tory masters who can pop over on their yachts to see their super-rich mates.
See you later
