Loco Surfing at El Cotillo

The Canarian SUP Debacle

The Canarian SUP Debacle Heading back to Fuerteventura after a couple of years' break was always going to be a challenge as shortly after my last visit life started to unravel. A combination of stress, some healthier life choices (after many years of not to so healthy life choices), a seriously ill parent and moving house lead to massive panic attack at the side of the road which resulted in ongoing anxiety, an irregular heartbeat and a bout of depression....

Loco 14' Carbon Motion Race SUP

Join Loco’s Stand Up Paddle Boarding Team

As some of you may know it's been a challenging 18 months health-wise for Loco front man Joe, consequently the usual levels of SUP stoke and team talent harvesting have had to take a backseat regrettably. Thankfully he's now back in the room and looking to drive things forward for the rest of this season and into 2020 and beyond. If you can see yourself as a Loco brand ambassador and are well-versed in self-promotion across social media we...

Not many realise it but brand margins have become much tighter over the last 5yrs with wage bills escalating in the Far East, cost of shipping has also gone up and with...

Solving The Big Guy Surf SUP Conundrum

Solving The Big Guy Surf SUP Conundrum It's fair to say that most guys with paddle surfing intentions don't necessarily fit into the 60-75kg sub 5'10 category so we have to ask ourselves how relevant are the volume to weight ratios and kit choices of our SUP surfing heroes? For most of us we have to pay for our kit and don't always have unlimited budgets to justify 2-3 boards so it comes down to compromise to a certain extent. Loco...

East Coast SUP Hustle with Loco Surfing

East Coast SUP Hustle

East Coast SUP Hustle After another 'decent size swell' famine for a few weeks and some uninspiring local beach break sessions, Loco boss Joe was desperate for this paddle surfing fix! Magic Seaweed suggested it might well happen at last weekend but as with all interesting forecasts they tend to run over into midweek when the daily grind necessitates doing some 'actual work' rather than swanning off to the coast all day. Praise be to Neptune, Joe's schedule was pretty clear...
