Urgent: Due to less than ideal weather and wind for Saturday 18 February, the Rolling Retro has been moved to the alternative date of, Saturday, 04 March 2017. The event only runs with perfect beach weather and fun waves, hence the call being made by event director, Kai Linder.

Rolling Retro 2017 is going Punk! So dust off those Pennywise albums, find your studs, load up on zinc and lumo accessories and grow that mohawk as we take over Llandudno beach for another day of surf, music and good times! We are joined this year by our awesome sponsors El Jimador, Vudu Surf, Striped Horse, Red Bull, Billabong, Von Zipper and Hurricane Surf.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
