This January the X Games headed to Aspen, and as expected, things got pretty ultra mega as some of the worlds best riders stepped up. Lots of special moments this year with the boundaries of the sport being pushed once again, here are some of our favorite moments.
This is just a short Blog entry incase you were wondering why we are so into bamboo clothing. Well, its because bamboo is the fabric that keeps on giving, not only does it create some comfy threads but is also an extremely sustainable crop – so you can feel good about looking good. Here are some of the reasons we see bamboo as the new sustainable fiber: Growth One of the great sustainable features bamboo has as a fabric is the way that it grows. It grows extremely fast and grows densely meaning it requires lot less land to produce it the fabrics like cotton, this frees up the land for much needed agricultural use, to feed the worlds[…]
Having a relatively warm October day in the UK doesn’t happen all that often! At Bamboo Bay we see it as a sign to go and play outside, have a skate or just go on a little adventure. It doesn’t really matter what we are doing as long as we take some photo’s we can still call it WORK! So thats exactly what we did. We gathered up some friends, or should I say “models and a photographer” and went out to see what we could see… In the search of hills, picturesque locations and pretty much anywhere that didn’t resemble an office. We would like to extend a big shout out to Craig Hendry our photographer. If you like the looks of the pic’s as much as us,[…]

We spent last summer in Hossegor on the South West coast of France. As a lot of you will know Hossegor is a prime surf spot in Europe hosting amazing beaches and waves. We went to surf and generally live the beach life for the summer. While looking for a place to crash a friend told us about Carwyn’s Surf hostel in Seignosse, we went to check it out and ended up staying there for the whole summer! Carwyn is a surfing legend and was one, if not THE pioneering surfer to come out of Europe all those years ago. He helped put European surfing on the map, by getting on the world tour and showing people around the world that the Welsh boyo’s could compete[…]
As soon as we heard about “Paddle round the pier” happening in our own back yard in Brighton we knew we had to get involved. Such an amazing idea, an extreme sports festival where the main focus is to build a crazy raft and paddle out to sea! This was the perfect place to introduce our brand to the good people of Brighton. We set about getting our stall (flimsy gazebo) up and running with the help of our friends, not so easy with high winds and lots of rain. When we came back the next morning we were stoked to see that the gazebo was still with standing proud. This was a big surprise to us and it made[…]
Bamboo Bay is a brand new ethical board-riders company and brand based in Brighton UK. Started by two young people with a shared passion for outside sports, travel and the environment. Bamboo Bay was set up to provide board-riders an environmental and ethical choice when it comes to fashion and hardware. We met on a snowboard season in Austria and since have shared our need for board sports, and been lucky enough to experience snowboarding, surfing, skating and many other board sports in beautiful locations around the world. One of the main reasons we, like millions of people around the world love board sports is not only a passion for riding but also the amazing places and people, that host[…]
