The first one went down the other day, here is the video if you want to check it out for yourself.[…]
We were happy to sponsor and help run an event called Girls Gone Rad. This was the second event put on for and by the girls and it all went down in Milton Keynes Snozone. With a quite similar philosophy and set up to She rides out in Meribel, the emphasis is to get girls into the park and build confidence through meeting new people and getting tips from some top instructors. It’s a jam format with prizes to be won from the sponsors. Categories like Best trick, Best bail and most improved kept the competitiveness flowing and made for a super enjoyable winters eve. Big shout out to all the girls who got involved and everyone who helped out. More[…]

This weekend we will be at Nass fest in Bath, doing a Bamboo Bay stall Friday – Sunday! We have done Nass once before and we are stocked to be back. This is not your average festival, it’s all based around extreme sports and has some of the biggest names in the game there, like the bird-man – Tony Hawk! As well as some top music names from the UK and world wide like Public Enemy. One of our favourite things about the festival is that everyone is cruising around on skateboards and BMX and there are public skateparks and ramps set up for people to shred in-between bands and live shows. Not to mention the bad ass pro skatepark they[…]
This weekend (4,5th of July) we will be doing a pop up stall at the Paddle round the pier event in Brighton! This will be our 3rd time at this special event in the place where Bamboo Bay started, Brighton. Each year is more fun and jam packed than the last, with live music, pop up skate ramps and shows, lots of events that the public can enter, demos, amazing local and artisan food stalls, loads of other stalls with gadgets and gizmos for surfing to longboarding, as well as the main event where people use home made rafts to paddle out to sea and race around a corse! The Bamboo Bay team elite, will be entering a[…]
The Bamboo Bay crew love a festival and we have done many stalls all over the place in recent years. From Cornwall to the south of France we have had a great time selling at festivals and have met some incredible people along the way. However, there is one festival that stands out for us. It’s a home away from home and we get especially pumped for Secret Garden Party! Our extended family “The Dance-Off crew” absolutely kill it there every year with their interactive stage which ensures people are raving and laughing from dusk till dawn. Last year we were lucky enough to do a collaboration with them and they kindly built in a Bamboo Bay shop into the actual stage! The[…]

This is a great little video about big wave surfer Ramón Navarro, who was born as a fisherman’s son in an area of Chile called Punta de Lobos. He taught himself how to surf the local wave and ended up taking his skills to the top of big wave surfing. One thing is clear throughout and that’s his passion and connection to the ocean and trying to protect it. It’s only around 20 minuets long but it’s a really powerful and uplifting story about someone who has risen up to become an ambassador and voice for what he loves!
We are stoked to have Ollie on our team, he is an amazing guy, super fun to be around and has style for miles on a board! We managed to get up the hill with him when we were out on our “Go a long way tour” for a couple of days and he is one of the smoothest riders we know. He has been out in Meribel this winter shredding the DC Area 43 park whenever possible, take a look at the sick edit he put together below.
