Nineteen years since its inaugural outing, we look back on the halcyon days of the World Bellyboard Championships with event organiser Nick Holden
We went to check out the Surf Wood For Good Auction; a collaboration between Dick Pearce and Friends, Surfers Against Sewage and Little Goat Gruff. Our bellyboards were put in the hands of the creatives to raise money that will help SAS to conserve and protect our oceans.
Our favourite way to do R&D on new bellyboard prototypes is grab some mates, head to a wedging shorebreak and put them through their paces. So last week, as a lovely pulse of summer swell loomed, we rounded up some of the crew and did just that.
Sign up here for our Free Father's Day gift.
Catch up with the founders of Gather and Glide; Allanah and Sam to find out more about their business and how they're using bellyboards to inspire ocean confidence.
At Dick Pearce we’ve always been committed to making durable, sustainable products designed and built right here in the UK. In recent years, this ethos has expanded beyond our bellyboards to encompass a whole range of gear, from blankets to bags.
With summer fast approaching, here's a run down five of our personal favourite Cornish beaches for belly boarding.
We catch up with Neil Hembrow, from the Ocean Recovery Project, for an in-depth conversation on how to tackle the wave of discarded bodyboards currently blighting our beaches.
Surf Wood For Good is back bigger and better in 2022, offering free bellyboard hire in dozens of locations around the UK.
In the first of a two-part series examining what exactly makes wood so good, we go right back to the beginning of the board making process, taking a look at where our wood originates and explaining why we chose birch ply to use for our boards.
In the second instalment of our two-part series on what exactly makes wood so good, we look at the carbon footprint of a Dick Pearce bellyboard versus others on the market and run you through what happens when the wood arrives at our workshop.
While there’s unrivalled joy in bellyboarding under a blazing sun, venturing out in the colder months offers its own wealth of mental and physical rewards.
