Clean Waves, Clean Conscience

This isn't my slogan - it's Errant Surf Travel's. These boys run a customised surf travel company out of Newquay & that often means flying customers off to warmer climes. And jet travel, as we all know, messes up the environment. From August this year, Errant have been offsetting the cost of any carbon emmissions generated in the travel back into projects run by the CarbonNeutral Company. This is a good thing. We want the carbon footprints of a pisky, not the sasquatch.

Mind you, I thought I heard on the radio the other day that the methane from cow's fart is more of a problem than all carbon dioxide emmisions put together. There's a thought ... which I don't want to dwell on.

Talking of carbon feet, over at Surfcore, you can calculate your vehicle of choice's carbon emission and the equivalent number of trees you need to plant to restore the carbon karma. Sea Nymph planted a witch hazel last Sunday, so we're doing our bit, OK?

I'm leaving on a jet plane (to N.Ireland) this Friday. I know when I'll be back again. We won't have the weather, we might have the waves but we'll certainly have the Guinness.

Mr Beach Bum - have you ever been on a trip with Errant Surf Travel? If you have, it would be super-duper if you were up for writing a review on - we just launched the site and would love to have you as a member... the idea is to have surfers review accommodations around the world, which will make it easier to find a good trip. Would love general feedback from you as well, of course. thx!
