Today is Perfect Summer Road Trip

The longest day of the year has been and gone meaning summer is well underway and so is the ‘Today is Perfect’ Road Trip.

Refitting an old school bus with reconditioned timber and seats made from recycled wetsuits to make a Motorhome, these guys are having a great summer on the road stopping at all the prime surf spots on the southern coast of the UK.

Ben Skinner, Sam Lamiroy, Celine Gehret and the O’Neill groms have become regular faces who offer advice on anything surfing related and hosting the O’Neill surf coaching sessions.

Scott Penman is a well-known Snowboarder, skater and man behind the microphone. This summer Scotty (having just passed his HGV license) is the bus driver and a resident of the bunk beds. The main area of the tour bus is Scotty’s lounge so he often takes care of the music selection and in this case actually made the music with an audio looping gadget.

A few weeks back the tour set up home at the Electric Beach Festival on Watergate Bay in Cornwall. With good waves and good weather the tour was in for a good weekend.

Ben Skinner who is more famed for his skills on a surfboard took to the stage and played guitar in front of the crowd with music artist Lloyd Yates.

This was a relatively unprompted decision and a quick practice session on board the tour bus proved that he could actually play the whole tune without any mistakes.

Ben and Lloyd are childhood friends and have jammed together many times before but this was their first time in front of a crowd.
