Quba’s Sam Lutman- Pauc’s Kitesurfing journey has continued with the completion of the welsh leg of the Volvo cold water project. The challenge which kicked off in March with Sam Kitesurfing off the coast of Cornwall, aims to showcase the rugged beauty of Britain’s coastline whilst promoting the sport of kitesurfing.
Joined once again by kite surfing legend, Dom Moore, Sam chose Aberdery and its surrounding area in Wales as the second stop on his tour. After delays due to lack of forecasted wind, the weather finally picked up! The boys were able to experience some epic kiting condition with the wind reaching speeds of 30 knots, gusting at 40 knots.
Sam has said "The whole weekend optimized what the project is all about, we kited on the Dyfi estuary and discovered some incredible beaches along the coast - the kiting was awesome. We delayed the trip for a few weeks due to the lack of forecasted wind, as we really want to do this in the most extreme conditions and the Welsh coast finally delivered everything we set out for and more"

View pictures from behind the scenes of our summer photo shoot aboard the Grayhound Lugger, moored in the mouth of the river Dart in Dartmouth, Devon. The weather was unseasonably cold and overcast but the team worked their magic again with some stunning pictures for our new summer collection which is due out in May.

Maritime flags have been used for hundreds of years to convey messages between vessels, strung high in the rigging from bow to stern. With their salt-washed colours and distinctive shapes and markings, these curiously appealing little flags form the basis for much of the unique detailing that sets Quba clothing apart. Drawing further inspiration from the traditional hand-painted registration letters and numbers on the Salcombe fishing fleet, this spring we’ve used careful appliqué and embroidery techniques to bring a touch of nautical history to our hoodies, polos, zip-neck sweats and trackpants.

Quba are a proud sponsor of the Grayhound Lugger, a faithful replica of a traditional three-masted Lugger originally built in England in 1776.
The Grayhound Lugger is now also flying the Quba flag, designed in Devon and taking inspiration from the maritime flags used to communicate at sea between ships. Check out the video of the Quba flag being hoisted up the main mast by Marcus & Freya and some of the Quba team:
