Now that you all have booked your summer holidays, sorted out your summer clothes, popping your sun block and enjoying the sun, we are preparing the winter rush.Our busiest time of the year is just around the corner and we're trying to make sure we have all the things you need to make your snow season a blast. With the combination of brands such as Burton, Salomon, Bonfire, K2, 686 and more, and the help of our trusted staff, we can help you get what you need to get up and running.
Throughout the 2013 and 2014 winter seasons one of the key things we learned is that the ski/snow sport is absolutely massive amongst BT employees; however the name of Edgeriders had not been so successfully spread through word-of-mouth and many of the hundreds of workers were unaware of our whereabouts. To put an end to this we conjured an idea to promote ourselves, instead of handing in leaflets of compliment slips, we asked if we could display our stock in a way that cannot be missed by anyone, a stand much like you would see at an open day held by a business.
Little Terns East Anglia - post by 'Touching the Tide Little Tern Warden'
Little Terns are charismatic birds, that once formed part of the character of the Suffolk coast in the summer months. Sadly in just 19 years the population saw a dramatic drop of 88% and last summer only four chicks successfully fledged along the whole of the Suffolk coast.
So if you kitesurf in East Anglia, specifically Suffolk please take some time to read this Blog post to see how you can help reduce the disturbance to the Little Tern nesting sites specifically in the months of May to August...

Salomon Sabotage 2015 Review
My first impressions for this board initially had me worried that I had a board beyond my ability. How wrong I was, straight of the bat I found the board gave me confidence due to its playful nature. When looking at the profile of the board it is slightly cambered but once weighted becomes a flat using Salomon's Flat out Camber design.
