Breo Hero Q&A : Zak Lawton

by Zak Lawton July 07, 2015

Today we chat to Breo Hero Zak Lawton about his surfing life, his motivation, heroes and tips for aspiring surfers.

How long have you been surfing?

I started when I was 9, so 13 years ago now! I cannot even remember my life without surfing to be honest with you.

How did you get involved?

We moved to Croyde, Devon, when I was 9. This was mainly because Mum and Dad had always been on holidays here and thought it would be a great place for us kids; myself and three sisters (yes, I deserve a medal) to grow up. To this day I cannot thank them enough, It’s such an awesome place, and I guess it’s being in the village that got me into the sea. Pretty much everyone’s life here is based around the ocean, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

Gear Check : Elaine Abonal

by Elaine Abonal September 15, 2014

Stepping up for the second instalment of our new Gear Check series is Philippines based Breo Hero, surfer and businesswoman Elaine Abonal. Read on for the lowdown on her essential surfing kit…

Hello my fellow Breo lovers!!

Life has been crazy in the island. Good crazy. I’ve been living in Siargao island for the past 2 months and have a couple of weeks left before heading home and continue my work with Surfista Travels Philippines. Time has been flying by super fast and as much as I thought I would be bored and brought all kinds of distractions with me, my life here has been hectic – there’s always something to do, people to meet, food to buy in the market, a new surf location to try, and lessons to learn. I’ve been surfing almost every single day, sometimes twice a day – depending on the tides since I’ve arrived here and I’ve been fortunate enough to have the best surfers on the island / the Philippines as my friends and coaches and I’ve learned so much. I feel very lucky!
