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[…]
Our new sunnies are now online and in time for summer. Now available in matt white, our new “Crazy legs” design sunglasses are really striking and original. Using laser engraving on bamboo legs, we create an amazing effect which are still very strong and robust, for those times when you accidentally use your sunnies as a cushion. Find them under our accessories category and get them before they’re gone!
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.
Bamboo Bay have partnered up with our friends from On the lip to do a Winter tour around the Alps! We will be driving down in the Bamboobaymobile at the start of March and making our way to as many resorts as we can, doing pop up stalls and getting involved with events such as Sherides, the Morris pub’s terrace party and the Tignes rail jam. All the while putting together an edit of our trip with some serious shredding thrown in to top it all off! We will end our tour back home in the UK just in time for a special evening at the Milton Keynes Snozone on the 20th of March, where we will be hosting a freestyle jam[…]

Mayfair is one of the last places you’d expect to find a room of scruffy shred-peddlers, but the Curzon cinema opened its doors to a band of snowboarders, filmmakers and their eager fans for the premier of Oakley’s new film, Snowboarding for Me. After a brief wait in a lobby/Victorian gentleman’s club, the audience was ushered into the theatre and the show started. The intro from some of the stars, the director, head of music, and editor didn’t give much away (Nico Muller’s cells can stalefish), but was a great warmer for what turns out to be one of the best films of the year. Here’s why: 1. The film is beautiful. From a purely aesthetic point of view,[…]
We were lucky enough to be invited to the premier of Absinthe films new production, Heavy Mental last week in London. We went along and had a really good night, met some very interesting people and thought we should do a quick write up for you guys. We have been long time fans of the Absinthe Films of the past and were really excited to see what this new production had in store. Absinthe have been making great snowboard films for a long time now and some of the older ones like “Futureproof and Pop” were way ahead of their time and in some ways lead the way for snowboard films of the future. So that brings us nicely to[…]
Our friend Tom Walder, an up and coming skate movie maker and keen skater himself, rounded up some of his buddy’s from the midlands and put together this great little edit from a couple of their sessions last winter! There guys are definitely worth keeping an eye out for the future and we hope they keep doing what they love and having a great time skating for lots of years to come. They are currently filming for a new edit this winter and we can’t wait to see it. So watch this space………..
We were sent this link by a friend the other day who was very cryptic about what exactly we were supposed to be looking at? We thought it may be for research purposes or something, when we got most of the way through the video we still very confused? Then we saw it and couldn’t help but laugh. Our sneaky sticker flashed up quite clearly around 2:55 in the video! The bar that they were filming at is Le Surfing just outside of Hossegor, France. We have spent a lot of time there and Ludi one of the founders of Bamboo Bay was a chef there a few years ago So thanks to O’Neill for the free advertising and to[…]
