If any of you UK waveriders haven’t got round to sorting out a 2014 calendar for your wall or desk, it may not be too late. We have been taking a look at what wave calendars are still available and if you hurry, you may be able to snag a bargain.
Cornwall is renowned for its breathtaking scenery and is one of the UK’s premier wave spots, so a calendar that features both is well worth considering. The Saltshots 2014 Cornish Wave Calendar has 12 stunning pictures of waves taken throughout the county. Featuring shots from well-known breaks including Porthtowan, St Ives and Porthleven, the lighting in each picture is stunning. If classic breaking waves are your thing the calendar is currently in stock at Saltshots and available for under £12 including postage.
My daughters favourite is the Surf Dogs calendar available on eBay for as little as £5, This particular calendar actually covers 16 months for reasons unknown to us, but that just means you get four extra cute surfing dogs to look at! The crazy canines are snapped riding their boards , some looking more confident and in control than others but all in safety as they are wearing their lifejackets!
The final calendar I have looked at and is my personal favourite is the magicseaweed Waves Calendar 2014. Whilst only small (the size of a CD case) it is designed as a desk calendar and sits nicely within the case. Not only do you get a selection of truly excellent shots by Mike Newman but you can also pat yourself on the back as 10% of the price is donated to Surfers Against Sewage. Currently on sale here at £4.99 with free shipping.
Get in quick though as all these Calendars are in limited supply.
