Original Water Brothers

MR NATTY DIARY ENTRY: While surfing America's east coast I popped into the original Water Brothers surf shop in Newport, Rhode Island. It is properly decked out with history. The owner, Mr Sid Abbruzzi, is a legend of his craft and a true pioneer of skate and surf folklore. Back in the day Sid skated with the likes of Tony Alva of the Dogtown and the Z Boys crew.
It was a pleasure to catch up with Sid.  He told me tales of his travels to the UK where visited the Cornish and Welsh coasts to judge an ad hoc surf comp. He scratched the results down on a rock on the beach using a stone.

This summer Sid is organizing his mammoth SURF FEST 5. Mooch the link. Get yerself there. I shall, it's going to be blinding.

Noel Gallagher by Mr Natty

The other week Mr Natty had the pleasure of looking after the barnet of Mr Noel Gallagher. It was for the cover of The Telegraph Magazine, you might have seen it (or done the crossword if you're clever). The pics were taken by Nadav Kander, who's a very talented fella. It was a bit of a walk down memory lane in Natty's old manor of Bermondsey (between Millwall's Den and a cake factory). Have a listen to Noel's latest album from his band The High Flying Birds. It's crackin' and he's on tour as well so go and catch him if you can. We wish him great success as ever. He is a proper gent.
