Slovenia lakes swimming holiday
Brilliant, I will go again providing they are prepared to out up with my lack of speed. I really fancy the Costion sea trip. A superb holiday and I promise you won't think about work once. (more)Craig Thomson
The swimming holiday was absolutely amazing and I feel super fortunate to have won it... Slovenia is a most beautiful country. The landscape is superb and the lakes we swam in were clear and magical. (more)Kate Fox Evans

In a recent article in The Times ‘Green and Confused’ section, surfers have been accused of being ‘a restless bunch’ that fly all over the world emitting huge amounts of greenhouse gases. And it is true; the search for waves leaves surfers with an insatiable appetite for travel. Does this mean that a surfer who is concerned about the environment will have to make do with their local break, be it the south-east coast that might see a wave twice a year? Do Londoners have to wait until the wave machine is built until they can next surf guilt-free? Will I have to brave Scarborough beach in the snow once again this winter? Here are some hints and pointers about what you can do as an eco-surfer to put your mind at ease. There is surf all over Britain, including Scotland, Scarborough and occasionally even places such as Norfolk and Brighton, but for more reliable and clean waves Devon and Cornwall are the better-known surfing destinations. Newquay is the most infamous surf-spot in the country, but now better known for its drunken hen and stag-dos then for its surf. Developers are trying to re-vamp the towns image by catering for rich ‘urban surfers’ flocking from the City at the weekends. As part of this development plan there are new ‘Surf Pods’ being built near Fistral Beach, consisting of a large, imposing, brash and modern block of studio-flats. Developers say they are aimed at ‘the guy in Canary Wharf who wears a suit all week, sees on the net that the surf is up, books his flight and comes down for the weekend.’ This gas-guzzling mind-set will create a carbon footprint so huge you’d have to plant a rainforest to offset it.
