It’s that time of year again for The Shore Paddle Sport Weekend. This year is running the weekend of the 11th – 12th July from 10am until 4pm each day. For 2015 we have taken the event to the next level. We will of course have all our hardware brands with an extensive range of all the paddle sport equipment to demo. Alongside the demo of the gear there will be loads of display gear so you will be able to chat to each brand about their range and they will be able recommend the products to suit your needs. Also kayak lessons will be offered at a greatly reduced price.
But wait…. the fun doesn’t stop there, on the Saturday evening Oneill are setting up an outdoor cinema outside the store. So grab a bean bag, pull up a chair and enjoy some live music and viewing of some classic surf movies.
This year we have also linked up with the charity Laurence-Moon_Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (LMBBS) http://www.lmbbs.org.uk/. So for everyone getting involved there will be a £1 charge which goes directly charity.
