Surfing...and it stoned me


A nod to my mate at SESHN for turning me on to the output from a rather spaced out photo-shoot from Insight51, the Aussie company that started out with surfboards and ended up with T-shirts. What were they on, I wonder?

If you're going to try and smuggle cocaine in a surfboard, make sure you have a surfer's tan. That's lesson one - learnt the hard way by this chap here. I'm not advocating, endorsing or encouraging drug use you understand. And yet there's a lot of surfers out there who compare surfing to a drug... which rather suggests they are - shock, horror - talking from experience.

Those so inclined may do well to comb our Cornish coves. As has been widely reported, suitcase sized stashes of Colombia's finest have been washing up on beaches here. Anxious community leaders have been trying to keep a lid on the news in case it sparked a rush of "undesirables" to the shoreline. This was cause for much merriment at our swim session the other night. Would you get a better price for it in Truro or Newquay asked Ian? Tony Montana is alive and well and living in Perranporth. Ian - just say no.
