Everyone loves free stuff. We love free stuff. It’s the incentive that keeps us posting snide and snarky missives on the internet, after all. Sometimes though, people want us to give you free stuff though – as is the case with the guys and gals over at Victory Records, who’ve given us a big ol’ bag of CDs and t-shirts to give away to our readers.

Rip Curl Boardmasters festival is Europe’s biggest surf and skate and music festival and its hitting Newquay on 4-10 August 2008, this year in association with Relentless energy drink and Vans, who are giving some swag away.

You can watch the world’s best surfers and skateboarders and stuff during the day and then go watch wicked bands like The Ghost Of A Thousand, Johnny Truant and Gallows in the evening. And bands like Kids In Glass Houses and Pigeon Detectives too. There’s something for everyone.

You’ve got to remember that because there will be loads of surfers, there will be a load of buffed, tanned bodies floating around so it’s probably the sexiest festival in the UK. It beats the tens of thousands of fat, hairy dudes that descend upon Donington every June for Download Festival.
