Paddle Round the Pier has come around again and this year Terra Plana decided to join in with the fun.
Paddle Round the Pier was founded in 1996 by Dave ‘Sandals’ Samuel to raise money for charity and provide a social gathering for surfers alike. The free two day charity event takes place on Brighton beach at The Hove Lawns, raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust, Surf Relief & the RNLI Lifeboats. The event takes place on the weekend of July 2nd and 3rd where there will be a huge variety of land and sea based extreme sports exhibitions and demonstrations, two days of music and a retail village to fulfill a great weekend at the beach for families, thrill seekers and plenty of smiley faces. This year offered an overload of splashy fun for every one, with a record breaking 50,000 people expected to visit, making Paddle Round The Pier the largest free beach festival in Europe. Read more…

The Barefoot giveaway promotion on Saturday the 22nd of January was a great success.
We heard that some die hard Terra Plana fans had caught the 5.45am train down from London to join the queue!
The queue started around 7am and had already reached around 50 people by the time we arrived at 9:30 to prepare the shop.
We started letting people in to the shop at 10:00 after taking a few photos of everyone without there shoes.
At its peak the queue had approximately 80 people waiting, not including those who had already made it into the shop.
A wide range of shoes were taken from each of the three brands; including United Nude Folds, Terra Plana Janis, Marianne, Wittgenstein and Brawn, VIVOBAREFOOT Brooklyn, Belles, Franklin and Kariba.
“A free pair of £200 #barefoot boots? Oh alright then. Thanks @Terra_Plana Brighton! Uber chumpfy! : D” – @MaryAnn_no_e via Twitter
The local paper, the Argus came down and took lots of photos and spoke to many of the customers in the shop.
Although very busy there was a great atmosphere in store, everyone was glad to be warming there feet up in there new free pair of shoes!
There was still a large queue outside when we announced that all 50 pairs had been given away, however some people remained to receive a consolation prize of 10% off any pair.
Galahad Clark will be giving a talk on the benefits of walking barefoot in our new Brighton store on the 18th August at 7pm.
We’d love you to come and join us – please arrive 10 minutes before the talk is due to begin. See you there.
