Christmas Surf Ski & MTB

The weather wasn’t very Christmassy this year as there was no sign of snow, not even any first and it was unseasonably mild.

Expensive Habits

I seem to be hearing that more and more these days. Not usually associated with spending too much money, but more due to the fact that I’m out swimming in the sea, cycling, paddling or running at all hours of the day and heading off to races or on adventures all the time. This week...
