On behalf of the SSF, it is with great pleasure I'd like to share with you the 'SSF Hardcore' Winter 2012 Edition.
The Hardcore originated as a Scottish Surfing Newsletter in the 1990s and captured the stories of the colourful personalities that were shaping Scottish Surfing at the time. In the dawn of the internet age however the old fashioned paper newsletter was left on the bookshelf and replaced by web based communication.
In discussion with the rest of the SSF Committee Members earlier this year we wanted to find a way of bringing the Scottish surfing community closer together and thought a way of doing this would be to share the experiences of the Surfers of Scotland by telling their stories - your stories, the stories of the Hardcore.
Its been a busy year for the SSF and although we were unable to hold this years Gathering of the Clans due to lack of swell there has been a lot of developments on the Environmental, SportScotland and Joxy Girl fronts which are just coming to fruition - 2013 is set to be a busy and exciting year (and a little birdie tells me the swells gonna be pumping! ; ) )
Anyway I hope you enjoy the attached revitalised SSF Hardcore newsletter, we will gauge interest and if its considered successful by the SSF members and receive contributions for future episodes we will keep it alive!
Carpe Diem & Charge Hard!
