There I was, having a regular old work day (which are all quite fantastic, if I’m honest) when an email pinged into the inbox that made me smile for the rest of the day! The Team at Boylo’s Watersports in Lyme Regis, kindly proposed to boost the Word Forest coffers by planting a tree with us for every £50 order they receive via their online shop, over the next four months!
Shift over Black Friday, this is 16 weeks of pure choka (surf talk for ‘awesome’)!
Boylo’s is an independent watersports business based on the seafront in Lyme Regis, around the corner to our HQ. It was established in 2011 by a small team who aim to meet every possible watersports need. They supply everything from stand up paddle boards to wetsuits, nautical gifts, beach accessories and the kind of clothing you’d expect to find in a quality watersports based outlet.
I must confess, I was quite tempted to book myself on one of their stand up paddle board lessons earlier this summer. Trouble is, I’m deaf in one ear and I have the balance, grace and style of an elephant on a tightrope. I suspect it would be more of a swimming session combined with the ultimate challenge of getting my neoprene-clad limbs back on the wobbly paddle board.
If you love your trees and you’re preparing to Hang 10 down here on the South Coast sometime soon (how hip am I on a wet and windy Friday night?) visit Boylos.co.uk!
Go you, surf dudes!
