|I quite fancy a little blackbird to keep me company on my next board.|
I used to have a sticker of a dog on the nose of one of my early surfboards, just always liked seeing him there - and if things ever got a bit hairy out in the surf it was always reassuring having 'Ken' there. Made me feel safer somehow...
Lately I've been fascinated by a blackbird that lives in our garden - seems like a plucky little guy. So I might get him on my next board.
While I'm at it I might break with my usual tradition of custard yellow and go for a pale avocado instead.
