New Revolutionary Surf Towel - Pop To Your Feet Whenever, Wherever

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 31 October, 2006 : - - Cornwall based surf instructor Olly Daglish has just created the ollypop surf towel, a beach towel designed to help learner surfers ‘pop’ to their feet quicker and more smoothly, improving their technique for when they’re back in the water. 

The ollypop towel enables surfers around the country to practice at home while beach-based surfers can use the towel to keep popping when the surf is flat. Surfers often find themselves back to square one when everyday life keeps them away from the surf, however with an ‘ollypop’, when the surf’s up you will be too!  

Olly has combined his ideas developed while working as a surf instructor, with his many years experience as a worldwide surfer to create ollypop, which can be purchased from for £19.95.  

“I wanted to create something to help surfers get up and riding quickly so they can get the full surfing buzz quicker and more easily through practicing while away from the beach or while the surf is flat. 

We are also keen to use our website as a free information source for surfers across the UK offering the latest surf forecasts and technical tips while promoting a safe surf culture and healthy outdoor lifestyle.”  The ollypop towel is already proving a hit with surf schools and surfers across Cornwall:

“The ollypop surf towel is perfect for people both learning and looking to master their surf position. I am certainly going to recommend that my students purchase an ollypop to help improve and maintain their surfing technique when they get home.”
 - Pete Craske, Surfs Up Surf School, Cornwall 

“It’s a cool beach towel and although I’ve been surfing for over a year now, I can still use the ollypop at home to practice my pop and check my positioning.  I love it and my brother now wants one for Christmas!”
 - George Turner, local surfer, Polzeath, North Cornwall 

With surfing's popularity booming in the UK at the moment, the ollypop is a sure favourite for the Christmas gift list this year. For more information contact Olly or Tiny at ollypop on 07810 375351 or email
