To lighten up the blues, welcome back to the #CusheChristmas Competition. Today is the day we are giving away another two pairs of Cushe boots two one Facebook fan and one twitter follower.  We asked you how and where you would test your new pair of Cushes and Facebook fan June Gaynor would wear her Cushe Boots visiting the lovely Waddesdon Manor this Christmas. They always have a lovely Christmas Decoration display in the Manor, and I'd take the opportunity to test the boots in their beautiful gardens. We think she needs a pair of Cushe boots for that. Congratulations, June - you are the second winner of the Cushe Facebook page.  Kathryn Casbolt tweeted that she would try out her Cushe boots at Lake District. Kathryn, choose a pair and get cracking! Congratulations, you are the second winner on twitter - Merry Christmas.  The competition isn't over yet and you can still win yourself a pair of Cushe boots - stay tuned as we will be announcing the third part of the competition this afternoon. http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/1d256cbd-a700-4ac5-bd19-17292f056d44 Sun, 09 Dec 2012 23:39:00 GMT #CusheChristmas Competition part three - who is the most Cushe of us all! <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2012/12/Monday10.12.12.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Ready, set, on your marks - the third part of our #CusheChristmas competition is kicking off! <br /><br />In the first part we asked you to tell us of your ideal Christmas and in the second we wanted to know where and how you would test your new Cushe boots.

Dave swam a massive 1000 miles along the Lower Missouri River, starting in Chamberlain in South Dakota and finishing at St Louis, Missouri. Dave was supported by his team, who paddled alongside on paddleboards and canoes, in an effort to fundraise for breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel. The whole team were geared with Cushe footwear to wear on the challenge, and Dave wore his Evo Web Canvas Sandals whenever he wasn't in the water. Apart from his swimming flippers and bare feet, Dave wore his Cushe's throughout the entire 58 day expedition. The hardy Evo's withstood the cross-terrain adventure, ready to survive another trip! We are so proud of Dave and the team completing their challenge and raising money for a worthy cause, and glad we could send them on their way with a little Cushe comfort.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/bf148c20-2aa7-4024-9b58-d8dbb675a16e Mon, 22 Oct 2012 00:06:00 GMT Behind The Scenes <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/files/2012/10/image.jpeg" alt="" /></p> <p>Looks like UK surf champ Sophie Hellyer and fearless BASE jumper Super Frenchie are being even braver than usual, baring (almost) all on the set of Cushe's AW13 photoshoot!

Cushe call it their 'Yoga mat' sponge foot, it really is like having sofas on your feet, I can't get over how soft they are to walk on. The strap is wide, unrestricting but also maintains the shoe on your foot securely" <br /><br />The review goes on to say "The EVA middle part of the sole structure forms a moulded arch support, which really works. It might be my imagination but my feet seem less tired walking around on these"<br />Brilliant stuff from Rogue Mag, which can be read online <a href="http://www.roguemag.co.uk" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2012/8/CSH-R-UM00665-040311.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2012/8/CSH-R-UM00666-040311.jpg" alt="" /></p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/5518f9e4-345a-43a8-8899-e030b750a9cb Tue, 07 Aug 2012 00:28:00 GMT Shucoon In Flipside <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2012/8/flipside.jpg" alt="" />The newest issue of the awesome Flipside magazine is on the shelves, and this month features the 'Shucoon' from Cushe.

I've always wanted to go there and it didn't disappoint. The waves were perfect everyday, and the whole crew was super fun.

A premium waterproof leather and suede upper easily handles water, mud and scree while a ventilated mesh lining keeps your foot dry, well aired and protected throughout your hike. The moulded Vibram outsole is lightweight but shallow, which enhances the boot&rsquo;s mobility on almost any terrain but may compromise grip in sludgy conditions."</p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/11/IMG_2672.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><strong><a href="http://thegirloutdoors.co.uk/" target="_blank">The Girl Outdoors</a> reviewed our <a href="http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Product.mvc.aspx/26174W/0/Womens/IT-Boot-Cuff-WP?dimensions=0" target="_blank">IT Cuff boots</a> and said they were...</strong><br />"The perfect winter boot for the city. Completely waterproof with a thick rubber sole that laughs in the face of puddles and a super comfy lining that feels like wearing a woolly jumper on your feet, the IT boots are like a hug in shoe form. What&acute;s impressive is that they also manage to be stylish &ndash; the soft fawn colour is gorgeous and they look fantastic with skinny jeans and a boyfriend cardigan. I&acute;m in love and can&acute;t wait for it to get cold so I can wear them constantly."</p> <p><strong>Speaking about our <a href="http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Product.mvc.aspx/26168W/0/Womens/Cabin-Fever-WP?dimensions=0" target="_blank">Cabin Fever boots</a> <a href="http://www.zest.co.uk/" target="_blank">Zest magazine</a> talked about our style credentials...</strong>"Waterproof, lambswool lined, and good for your feet too, these boots from Cushe are the ultimate warming winter boot. Navaho-inspired trim looks great too in line with this season's ethnic colourways. Made from 100% waterproof leather and suede, Cabin Fever boots also boast weatherproof sealed seams for ultimate winter comfort. But that's not all. Injected EVA cushioning makes for top-class underfoot comfort and durability; VIBRAM high-performance rubber soles support the arch of your foot."</p> <p><strong>...and we love that Blogger <a href="http://www.mummyandthebeastie.co.uk/" target="_blank">Mummy and the Beastie</a> also enjoys her </strong><strong>Cabin Fever boots, speaking about why they've got "the edge"...</strong><br />"What I love about them is that they are made really well and are extremely sturdy in comparison to Uggs. I can&rsquo;t imagine them flopping over onto their sides like my tall Uggs do at the moment. They are not slouchy or slovenly and this makes these boots have the edge, in the fact they actually are very smart but yet remain casual and comfortable."<br /><br />Great stuff!</p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/11/K4 (026P0505).jpg" alt="" /></p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/eb718bcb-612a-4273-a5fd-77066ae13ddb Mon, 14 Nov 2011 17:44:00 GMT The Endless Winter - A Very British Surf Movie <p style="text-align: left;"><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/11/EndlessWinter.jpg" alt="" />Over the past few months Cushe rider Mitch Corbett has been off on a road-trip around the UK, heading up a fascinating documentary project alongside fellow pro-surfer Mark 'Egor' Harris.&nbsp;&nbsp; The pair have been meeting the legends and pioneers of the British surf scene to trace the history of the sport and we're very proud to preview the film teaser which is jam-packed with vintage surf footage, stories of wooly jumpers worn under old wetsuits and one seriously British accent!!</p> <p> <object width="640" height="360"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/qD0Z0sodqhA?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/qD0Z0sodqhA?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed> </object> </p> <p style="text-align: left;">Check out more film details below including a map of their adventure and <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/EndlessWinterMovie" target="_blank">click here</a> for The Endless Winter You Tube channel or <a href="http://www.theendlesswinter.co.uk/" target="_blank">Blog</a> for the latest updates, and if all this talk of cold water is making you chilly then we suggest our new <a href="http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Product.mvc.aspx/26163M/0/Mens/After-Ride-WP?dimensions=0" target="_blank">'After Ride' boots</a> - exactly as the name suggests, these shearling lined waterproof boots are about as warm and Cushe as post-surf feet can possibly get but they're tough enough for the most exposed cliff-top!<br /><br />"In just half a century the British surf scene has evolved from &lsquo;a cult&rsquo; to a thriving industry that boasts world-class waves, champion surfers and a 300,000 strong surfing community. This is a journey with two of Britain's top pro-surfers on a mission to discover how, against a backdrop of vibrant youth culture, civil unrest and unprecedented social change this iconic surf scene was born.<br />&nbsp;<br />The film is about characters, heritage and uncompromising passion. It shows that the much maligned weather conditions create some of the best and most unique surf in the world and it's definitely a film about a very British lifestyle, a lifestyle of dedication, exploration and occasional hedonism!"</p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/11/Map.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/11/After Ride Boot.jpg" alt="" /></p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/91333671-dbad-4724-93e7-06835b99b51d Tue, 01 Nov 2011 09:37:00 GMT Freaky Friday Playlist!

The Surf Loafer's anatomical shape and moulded E.V.A. Feather-light midsole, provide both enhanced shock absorption and natural fit, whilst the ventilated micro fibre mesh and Twin Skin technology keep his feet feeling "happy", and the Surf Slipper's simple styling available in both canvas or leather means they are adaptable enough to take Dave directly from the riverside, to the airport or the city.<br /><br />You can buy the Surf Slipper online here or with our brilliant retailers including <a href="http://www.schuh.co.uk/mens-dark-brown-cushe-surf-sliper-loafer/3506766170" target="_blank">Schuh</a>, <a href="http://www.vivaladiva.com/shop/product/details/show.action?pdLpUid=RL069&amp;pdBoUid=3609&amp;lpgUid=#colour:185,size:" target="_blank">Viva La Diva</a>, <a href="http://www.surfdome.com/cushe_shoes_-_cushe_surf-slipper_shoes_-_brown-41965" target="_blank">Surfdome</a> and <a href="http://www.jacamo.co.uk/shop/product/details/show.action?pdLpUid=RL069&amp;pdBoUid=3678&amp;lpgUid=11096373#colour:185,size:" target="_blank">Jacamo</a>.</p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/6/41965.JPG" alt="" /></p> <p>&nbsp; <object width="610" height="399"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/YBANQIWclYU?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="610" height="399" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/YBANQIWclYU?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed> </object> </p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/5d2b7df5-13ee-4ebc-861b-8ccc188d9916 Sun, 26 Jun 2011 20:40:00 GMT Wake-UP! <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/6/J11 (026P0169).jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>We love making the most out of the Summer and are always up for a a bit of action and adventure, so on the 27th of June we'll be heading to the The 2011 BUCS Student Wakeboard Nationals at Sheffield Cable.<br />&nbsp;<br />Everyone is welcome to join us, with categories catering for all levels from beginner to pro and Camping is available on site for all competitors and spectators with some great prizes available including some Cushe goodness from yours truly!&nbsp; If you're you're interested in finding out more about the sport then throughout the event demo equipment will be available to riders to try-out the latest equipment in the world of wakeboarding, and have first hand advice on how to best set up their kit. <br /><br />So whether you're a student, an avid wakeboarder or just a fan of fun (er who isn't!)...join the <a href="http://www.facebook.com/uniwake" target="_blank">Facebook group here</a> to find out all the details, dates and entry requirements.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.uniwake.co.uk" target="_blank">http://www.uniwake.co.uk</a></p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/4f936d2d-4006-438d-a2de-162536259787 Tue, 21 Jun 2011 20:06:00 GMT Mississippi... <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/6/SUPMississippi. SUPSilhouette-lr.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>We're inspired by like minded people, travelling and leading Cushe lives so when we heard about adventurer Dave Cornthwaite and his series of truly inspiring record-breaking expeditions we knew he had a Cushe attitude and lifestyle to look up to!</p> <p>Back in 2006 Dave pushed himself and a skateboard across Australia from Perth to Brisbane, a five-month 3618 mile journey that broke the Guinness World Record for the longest distance by skateboard. In 2009 he walked and kayaked for two and a half months along Australia&rsquo;s Murray River, a distance of 2476km, and in April 2011 Dave and Australian Adventurer Sebastian Terry pedalled a tandem bicycle 1400 miles in 14 days from Vancouver, BC to Las Vegas.</p> <p>Next week Dave will set-out on an incredible SUP (stand-up paddleboard) Mississippi Expedition, beginning June 20th, Dave will paddle across Lake Itasca in Minnesota, and then into the Headwaters of the Mississippi River, starting a source to sea descent of North America&rsquo;s most iconic waterway, all by Stand Up Paddleboard. The 2400-mile journey is expected to take no longer than 80 days, with Dave averaging a minimum of 30 miles a day until he eventually emerges out into the Gulf of Mexico in early/mid September 2011. The length of the Mississippi River has never been paddled by a Stand Up Paddleboard so this adventure will smash the current distance record on a SUP, held by American Tom Jones who paddled 1507 from Florida to New York in 2010.<br /><br />We'll keep you updated with Dave's adventures here but make sure you support him by following him on<a href="http://twitter.com/#!/davecorn" target="_blank"> Twitter</a>, <a href="http://www.facebook.com/expedition1000" target="_blank">Facebook</a> and his <a href="http://www.davecornthwaite.com/" target="_blank">website</a> and watch-out for more of the journeys featuring Dave's Cushe clad feet, including paragliding across the Himalayas perhaps wearing his <a href="http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Product.mvc.aspx/M-F-SHOES/24493M/0/MEN/All-Mens/Shoes/Mens/Spike" target="_blank">Cushe Spike trainers</a>, rowing the Indian Ocean maybe sporting a relaxed pair of <a href="http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Product.mvc.aspx/M-C-CS/24484M/0/MEN/All-Collections/Coastal-Supremacy/Mens/Manuka-Slide" target="_blank">Manuka Slide's</a>, or even rocking our Tammerack boots when crossing the Pacific in a pedal-powered boat or skiing to the South Pole!

Points are awarded for an original location and for the number of spectators and participants involved. You must, of course, have somebody take a photo...As without a photo you are simply just a person lying down!<br /><br />Now planking certainly doesn't require years of training or the peak of physical fitness, just a good sense of humour!&nbsp; As you can see we showed our planking sporting prowess and aptitude and we limbered up in true Cushe style on the pool table and even the bowling alley, so we're laying-down (excuse the pun) the challenge to Cushe Global to send in their pics and what better song to get you in the mood then this little number from Hot Chip!</p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/6/CushePlanking.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/6/CushePlanking1.jpg" alt="" /></p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/98fd3ce6-aff8-433e-8fa7-5c9b67006eb1 Thu, 09 Jun 2011 03:14:00 GMT WIN a taste of the Cushe lifestyle! <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/5/395049_71037-Header-Women-v2.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>We have teamed up with one of our wonderful retailers - the awesome <a href="http://www.schuh.co.uk/mens/cushe" target="_blank">Schuh</a> (who are 30 years young this year btw) - to give you Cushe fans the chance to enjoy a slice of the Cushe lifestyle with a weekend of chilled-out luxury and surf style escapism for two at the beautiful Cornish coast.</p> <p>Enjoy first class hospitality at Cornwall's iconic Headland Hotel with awe inspiring views across the world famous Fistral beach, then kick-off your brand new Cushe shoes from your weekend shoe gift pack and get your toes in the sand with <a href="http://www.surfingistherapy.com/" target="_blank">'Surfing is Therapy'</a> and 2 days of exclusive Surf Safari across Cornwall's finest beaches.

It is right next to the <a href="http://www.newquaysfinest.co.uk/newquay-boardriders-club-c443.html" target="_blank">Surf Club </a>which can be good and bad.

It is as Cornish as Cornwall gets and is a great place to spend the day in between getting barrelled surf after surf.

The Tammerack is one of our favourite Winter styles as not only are they great for chilly weekend walks (with a laidback Sunday Roast stop at the local of course) but they're equally good at getting through the snowy city streets.<br />&nbsp;<br />If this sounds like your kind of style then check out a few snaps from our Winter shoot where the Cushe team headed to Colorado, just outside Vail, to a remote cabin called the Shrine Mountain Inn. We not only got to test the Tammerack and Dualogue&rsquo;s waterproof leather but brilliant photographer Eric Lamp and stylist Lindsey McCormick were on hand to make everyone look wonderful!<br />&nbsp;<br />Here's some snaps from our time in Colarado and a few links to some of our favourite retailers including <a href="http://www.schuh.co.uk/mens/cushe" target="_blank">Schuh</a> and <a href="http://www.vivaladiva.com/shop/product/details/show.action?pdLpUid=RS148&amp;pdBoUid=2720&amp;lpgUid=#colour:458,size:" target="_blank">Viva La Diva</a> so you can get Cushe in time for Christmas!</p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/2/Zoo Magazine, 24 Dec 10 - 6 Jan 11, P118-119.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/2/CusheColorado.jpg" alt="" /></p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/c2c5fc29-728e-4976-873d-5a2749c3bc52 Tue, 21 Dec 2010 05:30:00 GMT Christmas is coming... <p>Christmas is just around the corner and our friends in the press have been recommending Cushe for the Festive season.</p> <p>For Cushe ladies <a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/gallery/2010/nov/30/snow-boots-winter-weather" target="_blank">The Guardian</a> have picked the IT Boot Cuff for their 'Winter Warmers' and <a href="http://www.mensfitness.co.uk/fitness_equipment/sports/6034/christmas_fitness_gift_guide.html" target="_blank">Men Fitness</a> have championed the Tammerack Boot for their Christmas Gift Guide, both available online now.</p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/files/2011/2/CusheGuardian.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2011/2/CusheMensFitness.jpg" alt="" /></p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/7b93cf7b-5f4b-4bf5-bc23-f1c8c36b0b90 Fri, 10 Dec 2010 05:21:00 GMT C.L.I.M.A.T.E.

Everybody is in the same situation now and with legislation dictating change and more importantly, the ethical codes that we want to aspire to, the impact it&rsquo;s having on day to day business is becoming increasingly prevalent. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">How is becoming more environmentally thinking effecting Cushe?</span></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong></strong><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">When we started Cushe, the priority was to get the brand off the ground and establish ourselves in the market place. Now, with a secure future in place, our priority has changed to producing more environmentally friendly product with less of an impact on the environment. Compared to a lot of our competitors, Cushe is in a very fortunate position in the regard that we are still a very young company, only 5 years old so it&rsquo;s a lot easier for us to be thinking about the environment and taking the right steps to being more conscious. <br /></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">What were the steps you took in becoming more conscious of the environment?</span></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">When we first started thinking about doing things more environmentally, we initially thought that we wouldn&rsquo;t be the first and it would be a relatively easy process. We assumed that we&rsquo;d be able to learn from others, but the more we looked into it, the more questions it threw up. There didn&rsquo;t appear to be any real answers, no right or wrong ways to do things and the more this happened, the more we felt that we wanted to just strip the manufacture of product down to its bear bones, effectively, shoemaking in its purest form. Tackling the problem in this way actually created a blueprint to learn from and then filter it into the main range for everything we do for the future. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">What are you doing to make Cushe more environmentally sound? </span></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong></strong><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">As a company, we don&rsquo;t claim to have all the answers, but we do know that we could be doing things a little better. As a result of this new way of thinking, we wanted to create a series of products that Contained Low Impact Materials And Thinking Environmentally and this is how the C.L.I.M.A.T.E label came to be. It represents a small collection of shoes that stands apart from the rest of the range that is our effort to be more environmentally conscious. It&rsquo;s an area that we wanted to keep protected from the rest of the line and an area that allows us to experiment more to see if we can find ways to create more eco and environmentally friendly footwear. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">Lets talk about the Shucoon&hellip;</span></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">The first product we developed under the new CLIMATE label was a project provisionally entitled &lsquo;Cocoon&rsquo;. The idea behind it was that we wanted to protect this collection and almost put it in its own little bubble. To make it a bit more fun we actually decided to make the thing look like a cocoon, with the two outsoles fitting together, held together with a recycled rubber wristband. It&rsquo;s a very simple model and serves a couple of purposes; it cost effective, it&rsquo;s got a cheap retail ticket and more importantly, it makes environmental fun. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">In time &lsquo;Cocoon&rsquo; turned into &lsquo;Shucoon&rsquo; and rest is history&hellip;</span><strong><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US"> <br /></span></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">What about the future?</span></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: &quot;Myriad Pro&quot;;" lang="EN-US">Well now we&rsquo;ve got our blueprint in place, we&rsquo;ll be rolling it out across the range and be making everything we do a little more environmentally. It&rsquo;s a truly exciting future for us because we have a personal interest in making this area success.

The detrimental effect that footwear companies have on the environment is a serious subject but with this refreshed way of thinking, we thought we could have a bit of fun with it too. At the start of this process, we thought it would be a fairly simple task to find a blueprint for creating environmentally friendly footwear, but were amazed to find that no matter how hard we looked, it simply wasn&rsquo;t there.

Warming the crowd up was Seb Kern, who played a quality old skool Drum n bass set, leaving the crowd pumped and waiting for more from the headlinners, Urban Knights. These guys hit the stage, took stock and conquered, with some brainshaking dubstep and breaks. Sonically awesome, visually incredible, the Urban Knights were the guardians of all thats sacred and revered about the BRITS.</p> <p> <object width="480" height="295"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/uOOMJWSaNxg&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="295" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/uOOMJWSaNxg&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed> </object> </p> <p>The action from the following day</p> <p>Skier Cross and snowboard halfpipe were on the menu today. We had a particular interest as Becky was competiting in the finals of the skier cross finals and i'm very pleased to announce that Becky was once again on the podium, coming in 3rd after a crash halfway up the slope with the 4th place competitor. Nice one Becky!!!</p> <p>In the snowboarding halfpipe, historically the blue ribbon event with the big guns all coming out to play, we we're treated to some explosive action in all catagories. In the womens, Animal rider and GB star Kate Foster took gold and in the mens, young buck, Jamie Nicholls took the honours with a trick he's learnt in practice that day.</p> <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/files/2010/3/becky.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>All in all another corker of a day and muchos fun had by all.</p> <p>More from day 4 tomorrow.</p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/7ad73fc3-4800-4dfb-9429-fa4aed63a197 Fri, 26 Mar 2010 14:34:00 GMT Day 2 at the BRITS - The Cushe Huck Fest <p>Wowzers, that's the second day done with and what an eyeful we got. Snowboard Big Air and Freeski Slopestyle was on the menu today and neither disappointed. Under difficult conditions, both skiers and snowboarders pulled it out of the bag and kicked the knuckles out of the park. Surprises in both and a serious sight for sore eyes, all we're terribly impressive and made me feel inadequate and inspired in equal amounts. Big Up!!!!</p> <p>Better, in fact, far better was what happened in the Apres area tonight! The Cushe Huckfest went off in the most incredible fashion. It basically was 'Sick to power of Rad'. Nuff said. Skiers and snowboarders, literally threw themselves into the Cushe Landing making for one of the most exciting events at the BRITS. The crowd cheerd, jeered, screamed and hollered at the top of their lungs pushing the competitors that little bit further to compete for the Cushe cash prizes. We gave out prizes for best back flip, best front flip, best double and finally, best freestyle. In total we handed out 500CHF's and those guys get a few extra beers tonight, my goodness, they deserve it. Kudos to all! Our eyes are in debt to you.</p> <p> <object width="480" height="295"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/J1ZodT0nKpE&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="295" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/J1ZodT0nKpE&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed> </object> </p> http://www.cushe.com/UK/en-GB/Blog/Article.mvc.aspx/063b5d90-78d5-48f4-9117-3a0a07aa94de Thu, 25 Mar 2010 23:01:00 GMT 1st day at the BRITS <p><img src="/~Uploaded/Blog/CUUK/files/2010/3/noski.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>That's it then, first day at the BRITS done and dusted and what a day it was too!</p> <p>It started off a little cloudy at the summit and there weren't huge hopes for the day of events to come, but didn't it turn out nice!!!!!!</p> <p>I started off the day talking to our skier, Becky Hammond at the bottom of the chair lift about her day to come and she seemed pretty confident about a blue sky day. Today was the turn of the skiers in the halfpipe and the snowboarders on the snowboarder cross course. Obviously, our big motivation for the day was giving Becky a big cheer on the way down the halfpipe and cheer we did. I'm very pleased to annouce that our cheers weren't unheard. Becky proudly stood 3rd on the the podium for the main competition, so big congrats to her.</p> <p>Day 2 tomorrow; Snowboard Halfpipe, Cushe Huckfest and Cushe party.
