COLD PRO has been cancelled!!

I am very sad to say COLD PRO is off.
Its real shit news, it was going to be a wicked, fun weekend.
The official press release is below. One thing I hope people realise COLD PRO did everything they could to make it happen, given the chance it would have been a great event but they have been forced into this position. Hopefully its not the end and they will be back bigger and stronger and we will get a chance to see what they can do.

Cold Pro Festival 2011 – Official Press Release.

This morning, due to factors outside of the organizers control, Cold
Pro festival has been forced to postpone our collective celebration of surf,
sounds and soul until a later date.

Events that have transpired during the last 72 hours have made it
impossible for the festival to go ahead as planned on the June bank
holiday weekend.

The ‘Powers that be’ have unfortunately and sadly decided that County
Clare and indeed Ireland will have to wait much longer for a festival like this
to be able to function as we envision it.

All of us at Cold Pro festival have put our hearts and souls into
creating an independent event run by the people for the people, and we
would like to sincerely apologize to every person that has come on
board or was as excited as us, and thank all that were aspiring to
help out or come and party with us.

We are aiming to come back stronger than ever to run the festival in
2012, possibly in a different part of Ireland, but still with the same
ideals and creative vision as the driving force behind it.

All ticket holders will be refunded in full ASAP via ticketmaster.

All the best

Cold Pro

7,8 returns!

Tom has managed to finish off a new 7,8 for me even with recently becoming a father. Big congrats to Rachel and Tom for little Nora so happy for you guys.

I have robbed his photos and write up about the board from his blog
Thanks very much Tom cant wait for the day to try her out!

7’8 x 18 1/2″ x 2 5/8″. Heavy glassing (6+6)+(6+6) brings it in at about 4.5kg. Hopefully it outlasts the one that Easkey managed to break out at Aileen’s! Outline is based on my standard Aileen’s board, but tweaked a bit to feel right under Ferg’s arm. A little thinner and narrower and less full foil. Vee through the tail for stability and pocket rides, large ones…

Analog team trip

Here is a photo from an Analog team trip I was on in the Mentawai's.
It was a really fun trip, not amazing waves but it was cool to catch up with all the crew. They are all a top bunch on lads and look forward to surfing with them again.
Thanks to Cotty for organizing the trip and Analog for making it happen.
