Within the last decade or so Britain has been making a name for itself in the world of longboarding. With the likes of Ben Skinner, Dudley, Harris and others pushing competitive surfing onto the international stage and getting solid results worldwide, these guys have been laying down a core foundation and providing inspiration for an up and coming generation of young surfers looking to lay down smooth, clean lines and push British longboarding even further in the next decade.

Trevelyan Garland, a.k.a. Trev, is part of this generation and hot on the heels of Skinner and Co. Early in 2009. We’d say Garland is one of the most underrated, young talents within the competitive long boarding scene. He’s quiet, determined and humble, comes from a fishing and surfing background and it’s wicked having a young gun flying the Finisterre flag.

After clinching consistent first and second place wins throughout the British Longboard Union tour, he has won the British Junior title for 2009. We’d like to think that British long-boarding is in safe hands.

Super stoked for you Trev, now tell Charlie to spill the beans on where he’s reeling in the big fish!
