Begin Launch Sequence! July 04 2013, 0 Comments

Only two more days to go until Broken Riders is revealed to the outside world at Brighton's Paddle Round The Pier event and we're counting down in hours now, not days! Maybe I'm going to jinx things, but the run up has been pretty straight forward. My wife Janine has, as usual, been amazing and sewn sleeve labels and put tags onto over 300 shirts! Other friends have been really helpful and it really feels like we're almost there. Although this morning at 2am, when I was trying to figure out how to code my newsletter subscription page to talk to my mailchimp list things felt slightly different!

I hope anyone reading this can get down to Hove Lawns in Brighton over the 6th and 7th July and pay us a visit. Our stand number is 57. It's going to be a great event, with almost 200 traders selling everything from t-shirts to SUP boards. And it looks like the weather is going to be awesome! According to the BBC Weather site Saturday is going to be sunny and 22 degrees centigrade and Sunday is going to reach 25! Perfect summer paddle (and t-shirt wearing!) weather...

See you soon,
Tom

Hi, and welcome to the Broken Riders blog. This blog will probably consist of my ramblings and a few photos with hopefully a few laughs along the way!

At the moment we're busy getting ready for our launch at Brighton's Paddle Round The Pier event. Billed as 'The world’s biggest FREE beach and water sports festival' and with the full backing of Brighton & Hove Council, visitors to Paddle Round The Pier can experience surfing, stand up paddle boarding, bmx, kayaking, skating, windsurfing and free running,land paddling, kitesurfing and even freestyle mountain biking. takes place on Hove seafront on 6th & 7th July. Broken Riders will have a stall within the traders' market and it should prove to be an amazing weekend.
