A word from Guest Editor,
Mr Oli Adams
I’ve been involved with the Pitpilot baby right from the start. I watched one of my best friends, Joe Moran go through a painful labour (full respect for that) and give birth to it, then I watched it grow and tried to help nurture it with ideas and support when needed, almost like a crazy uncle.
Then I watched Joe give it up for adoption when he needed to move on to a new life as a lady of leisure. It got fostered out to a friendly man called Greg who taught it to stop swearing as much and dressed it up a bit smarter until finally it got itself old enough to move out and into a flat with a wise and peaceful landlord called Tony who is going to kick it out into 2010 and beyond. With this in mind I’m absolutely stoked to be given the opportunity to be the guest editor for this issue of PitPilot. I’ve always wanted to be a surf mag editor and it’s been cool to be involved with the process and to be part of what goes into it. This issue we’ve got loads of goodness for ye faithful followers of the Wolf. First up, we have a South Coast feature on the crown jewel of Cornwall, Porthleven. We have a piece by Matt Knight called “Respect“, there’s a one hot, one cold, one hot themed gallery, plus all the usual gold, like the knowledge passed down by the wondrous Beagle (where does it come from? only he knows!) It’s time for me to fly, hope you all enjoy this issue. PitPilot is now, as it always was, dedicated to portraying British surfing in the best possible way, from grass roots to big trees. See you in the line up, cheers, Oli
