QBC's Samson Coulter will be surfing at 3:30 this afternoon - if you can't make the sand, click-on and watch the live webcast
Need an excuse to get out of the house tonight? Artists Lister & Gemma O'Brien are live painting at Hotel Steyne for Volcom Riders Week - Rare opportunity to see two artists at work - enough said! See you there!
