both the Media Training Camp and Grom and Cadet Squad weeks are coming up in December in Portugal. For Europe it's a perfect place to get to work -warm temperatures, wide variety of waves, sunshine, pastel de natta's and galau's. CLICK LINK for clips of Toby Donachie from earlier this year.
Seth Hughes grew up, goes to school and lives fulltime in London. It seems like only yesterday since he was having fun trying to pop up on his NSP - Now look at him? Evidence indeed of what dedication, good inputs and a 'can do' attitude can do for your surfing. Bravo! You can check the Cadet Squaders latest VIDEO HERE
Jobe Harriss is about to kick off the final 2 ASP Pro Junior events in the Canaries and Galicia, Spain. The clip HERE shows his surfing prep immediately after getting back onboard after a 4 month injury layoff. The footage was taken mid summer in Hossegor France.
Nowadays if you want to train at surfing you have the option of pressing 'GO' on a machine in the desert. Wild times indeed. Check out how Liam Murray Strout got on in these clips HERE. It's been a weird comp year in the UK and Liam's all round performance is a timely reminder of the high skill level at the top of the Under 16's group.
While the football club is in a Kinnear inspired mess, the surf scene on Tyneside is more bouyant than it has been since the Stores / Davies era. Ben Tucker seen here at Cadet Squad training today putting some chip stottie whoomp into the end section.
There;s a real chance that the current Under 12's will be the most successful group in British surfing history. There's never before been quite so many that can actually surf and having a big peer group is agreat starting point. Being competent so early there's a crucial chance to develop key techniques and a comfort in more serious waves in the early developmental stages. Add in that they are already used to travelling abroad and that before long they'll be competing as part of the wider European group - the ingredients are there. Stan Norman (above) is just one of the pack and at 10 years' old that's a pretty healthy hit just there.
