It has been too long between posts… 30 odd days actually…
SOOO much has happened in this time – it has been hard to keep on top of ‘what’s next’, let alone reflect on ‘what has happened’… I sit here now in our little POP UP shop over looking Maroochy river out to Pincushion Island & think this is a bit of alright… in the now…
On reflection we have had a full on month, so I will try to recap…
LIFT OFF – we launched (12/10)… With an Exhibition of the Artists we are working with. We had an amazing night, with over 100 guests taking in the CTRL V concept and the teams amazing artwork… For Dani & I it was an energising and exhausting time as the build up had been full on and to finally deliver the exhibition was surreal. Massive thanks to all involved… and to those that came along and made the night so cool!

GOING OFF – we had an amazing time at the Byron Bay Surf Festival (26/10). The CTRL V concept and our artists work was extremely well received at the Artisan Markets held on the Saturday. The festival was incredible with Film and Book Launches, screenings, Legends talks, shaping demo’s, surfing demo’s a board swap, live music…. so on and so on… there was something cool to see and do all weekend. Highly recommend the experience, we will definantly be back next year.
NOT TURNING OFF – on the way home from Byron a window of opportunity presented itself… and as I do – I careened through it!! We opened a POP UP SHOP in Maroochydore (01/11)… We have turned a shipping container into our very own Tiki Bar / Surf Lounge. Surrounded by Art, loads of surf stuff, music, classic surf flicks… hang on while I pinch myself… it is a rad place to hang out let alone work… and we are next to the best coffee shop on the coast… Mambo Coffee, 4 1st Avenue Maroochydore.
Keep up to date with the goings on at the POP UP SHOP via FACEBOOK. Hopefully, we will be selling a few DCals along the way…
We’ve got a pretty packed month ahead with a few special events planned.
08/11 – Nights on Ocean Markets – Ocean Street Maroochydore – Look out for the CTRL V stall. Come on by and say Gday.
09/11 – The Board Meeting Surf Challenge – CTRL V has sponsored a team of reprobates to compete (loose use of the term) – THE V BOYS – will be carving up the waves and a pulling into a few beers, as part of an event to raise funds for local kids with a disability… which is extremely close to our heart.
We have donated a VERY SPECIAL piece from our stock of demo boards for the Surfing Memorabilia auction… check it out at:
10/11 – Surfboard Swap Meet – At DaBomb Surf Shop Maroochydore. Check out the details –

Nup… but it’ll do for now… I will report back with all the incriminating evidence on this weekends madness!
DO GOOD HAVE FUN
