Longboarder Magazine Arrives At 10 Over Surf Shop
It’s been a busy week here at 10 Over Surf Shop in Newquay. We had the delivery of 165 boxes of Longboarder Magazine. For Volume One we wanted to manually pack and ship them, to ensure the process was super smooth. Around Thursday last week, customers started to receive the magazine and the feedback has been epic.
Here’s a review from Nick Palmer “Just received my copy of volume 1 of Longboarder, and all I can say is wow, the articles, photography, and quality are all first class. As a surf magazine addict for 30+ years, this is something rather special. Consider me a subscriber! Thanks.”
This and many of the other reviews for Longboarder Magazine and our surf shop really motivate us to continue to strive to be the best we can be - so thank you to everyone who took the time to leave the surf shop a review.
In other news, it has been super flat in Cornwall - which means no surfing. Still, the sun is shining, so plenty of sea dips and skateboarding!
