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's SUP Surfing Review of Las Americas Tenerife

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...

Scottish SUP Surfing & Racing Champ Neil Craig Talks to SUP Mag UK

Scottish SUP Surfing & Racing Champ Neil Craig Talks to SUP Mag UK  After some fantastic performances in the Scottish SUP Surfing and SUP Racing ISA qualifiers last year, Neil has certainly put himself on the map as a multi-discipline stand up paddle boarder.

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...

The Coast With The Most Well Almost

The Coast With The Most Well Almost Winter, at least here in the UK, is the season that separates the wheat from the chaff when it comes to paddle surfing. For most the dark nights, freezing temperatures and often challenging conditions are enough to put their ride of choice into hibernation until the weather turns but for the faithful it becomes a calculated game of studying forecasts; cross-tabulating wind direction with swell direction and then trying to find a location...

Paddle Surf Reo Re-entry on Loco Aztec

Loco SUP Surfing South West Portugal

Loco SUP Surfing South West Portugal It must have been almost 20 years since I last visited Portugal and with a none paddle surfing better half I'd agreed to book  somewhere in the South Algarve on a largely 'holiday basis' with the caveat that I could take my board (just in case). The last time I was in Portugal I'd stayed in Lagos and had enjoyed some half decent windsurfing in October so I hoped that I'd at least score...

Loco 2017 SUP Surf & Kite Boards Have Landed

Loco 2017 SUP Surf & Kite Boards Have Landed Hey Locos! We're stoked to announce that the first of our 2017 SUP Surf & Kite Boards have landed at Loco HQ. Unlike some brands we've not just changed the graphics and increased the price by £200-300, in fact last year's branding overhaul was that popular that we've decided to keep the graphics the same for 2017 and spend time making subtle tweaks to the important stuff! So what's new? One of the biggest...

Loco Aztec Bamburgh Castle Northumberland

Rough Camping A Castle and Two Locos

Rough Camping A Castle and Two Locos If you've been living on the East Coast of the UK over the last few weeks it's been a pretty sorry state of affairs when it's comes to swell. Endless offshore wind, torrential rain and pitiful one foot wonderland has become the norm, thanks jet stream! Unsurprisingly at the first sign of pulse Loco boss Joe was cross tabulating swell direction with wind and which way certain spots faced to try and hunt down...
