RUN TO THE SUN

12 May 2003


Need to get away...?

You're back from your season, going mad in the UK? Here's the answer. The folks at Big Friday have come up with the solution to help up-for-it folks wave goodbye to the city and get some gorgeous fresh air into their lungs, some salt in their hair and some sand between their toes! Surfing is the perfect summer alternative to ski-ing or boarding. The people are the same, the attitude's the same and there's nothing better than having an awesome time with your mates in the middle of nature (plus a few beers!).

Serious partying
One of the biggest weekends around Newquay takes place during the last bank holiday in May (23rd - 26th). Over the past thirteen years, Run to the Sun has become a homage to the vehicle most associated with surfing - the Volkswagen camper van. Around 100,000 people head for the coast to enjoy an eclectic weekend of sun, sea, surf, customised cars and music.

Run to the Sun has evolved into a huge dance festival and after a day in the surf, a massive party kicks off at Trevelgue Holiday Park in Newquay. It's a huge weekend and good accommodation in Cornwall is booked out months in advance. Big Friday got in there early though and will be running a coach that weekend with spaces available at The Aqua Shack.

Discount for Natives...
If you are looking for a weekend away with no worries about how you are getting there and where you will be staying, partying from the moment you board the bus, Natives have secured a special 10% discount 'Bank Holiday Bed & Bus' deal for seasonaires who contact Big Friday and mention Natives.

Big Friday will organise the bus and three nights accommodation in the brand new Aqua Shack right in the centre of Newquay for just £130 (normally £144). Places are limited though so get in touch with us asap to reserve your spot!
