If you can see yourself as a Loco brand ambassador and are well-versed in self-promotion across social media we...

Loco’s SUP Surfing Review of Las Americas, Tenerife

As most of our fans will already know Loco boss Joe usually jets off somewhere sunny for some winter waves when the UK SUP season quietens down. Having visited the brand's spiritual home in Fuerteventura numerous times, ticked off Morocco and Portugal in recent years Joe was looking for somewhere new to explore and with a lack of rider availability and some 'family stuff' going on the usual lads trip had to be swapped out for a couples trip...

Why Loco Pre-Orders Make Sense With Brexit Round The Corner

Why Loco Pre-Orders Make Sense With Brexit Round The Corner I'm sure most of us are sick to the back teeth of hearing about it but Brexit is coming and will definitely impact on all businesses that buy stock in dollars and import said stock into the UK. 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...

Loco Surfing Reports On The SUP Punks East Coast Social

Loco Surfing Reports On The SUP Punks East Coast Social Born out of frustration with a national series exclusively run at beach breaks in the South West, the concept of forecast-driven competitive paddle surfing series had been bounded around by a few of the Northern-based riders over the colder winter months.
