Making it count in 2014

Small changes = big gains With the ringing in of a brand new year, plans are made for the months ahead, goals set and resolutions made. Some will fall by the wayside, others will be half measures while the golden few will stick like glue and be capitalised upon.

Loco windSUP

'It’s just windsurfing as it was in the 80s innit?’ And in some ways, this description of windSUP is nearly accurate.
